I saw this on another Forum...thought it should be here too...:D


Why I Carry a Gun
PEOPLE ASK WHY??

My old grandpa said to me son,' there comes
a time in every mans 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 carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don't carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world
can be a scary place.

I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats
in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil.
I carry a gun because I have lived long
enough to see the evil in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the
government.
I carry a gun because I understand the
limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
I carry 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 carry a gun because I want to shoot
someone.
I carry 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 carry a gun because I'm a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to
heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a
man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take
care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel
inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing
three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it.
I carry 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 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'.

That's great..!! There are some great truths in there. If I'd written it, I might have have worded it just a little different in places, but I think it speaks to the reasons a lot of us carry..

Seen that around a few times myself. It's just plain common sense but we have to realize that not all people were blessed with that gift. :)
+1 on that man.

I find myself saying those very words to people every so often. However, my favorite answer, and the shortest one is 'Because I can'
