Nice. Some good reasons listed there.

There was one that someone has on their signature, I can't remember who at the moment, but it's something like "I carry a gun because a cop is to heavy".

Why I carry
 
I carry a gun because there are people out there evil enough to put a kitten in a microwave oven.

Excellent post.


I'm copying that one...will come in useful combatting the head-in-the-sand viewpoint so common here.

Responsibility
 
Great Post...

Picked this up a few years back from an edition of American Rifleman.

Why do you carry? How to answer this question when it's usually posed by someone who already has there mind made up about all those evil guns.

Answer: Responsiblity

For me that means being a husband and father with the livelyhood of a wife and 3 children riding on my ability to get up every day, earn a living, and make it home in 1 piece...So I can do it all again tomorrow...

Uh.. To be honest, I think this statement sums it up without a list. I know there are many other "quotes" and such on the net. But Damn.. Never heard that one Cane !!
