Why I Have A Gun


My old grandpa said to me, "Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin'."

I don't have a gun to kill people. I have a gun to keep from being killed.
*
I don't have a gun to scare people. I have a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
*
I don't have a gun because I'm paranoid. I have a gun because there are real threats in the world.
*
I don't have a gun because I'm evil. I have a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
*
I don't have a gun because I hate the government I have a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
*
I don't have a gun because I'm angry. I have a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
*
I don't have a gun because I want to shoot someone. I have a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
*
I don't have a gun because I'm a cowboy. I have a gun because, when I die and go to Heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
*
I don't have a gun to make me feel like a man. I have a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
*
I don't have a gun because I feel inadequate. I have a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
*
I don't have a gun because I love it. I have a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
*
"Police Protection" is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime; they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
*
Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'.

Great post!
"Police Protection" does not mean "Personal Protection"
The police are there to serve and protect the community, not the individual.
