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 *** 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 *** whoopin'.

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