It may be time to Gun Up America. Those of you who do not know or understand basic weapon safety should take a class. Open borders, importation of potential terrorists by the Obama administration is inviting disaster. The cops are doing their best but can't be everywhere as we have seen. Avoid gun free zones as they are just advertisements for criminals/terrorists that there is an easy killing field available. Don't let the corrupt politicians promulgate fear and think they can protect you, they CANNOT. You must be prepared to defend yourself & your family.
Carrying a gun is a protected Constitutional Right but common sense must be used. If YOU want to carry, that is fine, but for the sake of the rest of us, get some proper training and PRACTICE for both safety and accuracy! There are many reasons to carry and that is your right, but being responsible is also your Duty!
Patrick Henry: From the June, 1788 Virginia Convention on the Ratification of the Constitution, including the Shall Liberty or Empire be Sought? Speech
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
Suspect every one who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."
"The great object is that every man be armed.
Everyone who is able may have a gun."
The quintessential reason why Grandpa carries a gun.
Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to "A Little Gun History" about half way down-- staggering numbers!
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 and to stop a criminal from hurting my family. Modified slightly by me!
I don't sleep with a gun under my pillow, but I DO have one in a bedside holster that I can reach less than a second. Added by me.
I don't carry a gun at home but have one at my desk and within quick reach wherever I am in my home. Added by me.
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 because police do not protect you from crime; they 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'!

I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you're not a believer, please reconsider the true facts. This is history; not the BS that's being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.
