    Why I Carry 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 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 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.

    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.

    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'. ..

    Author Unknown (but obviously brilliant) :cool:

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away!
    This is why I conceal & carry.
    I have posted this on many forums & most of the law enforcement on those forums agree with me.
    If you don't take control of a bad situation it will take control of you.

    As "The Cornered Cat" says: I carry a gun because a policeman is too heavy.

    I can erase my b*tches and ex gf's messages faster (before my current gf tries to grab my phone and read them) than grabbing my gun. :)
