A friend sent this to me. Some of you may have already read it, but others may not have done so. Either way, it's worth reading again.

Why I Carry a Gun....

My old grandpa once 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.” Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, and 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 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 just
investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean
up the mess.

Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes.
The average response time of a .357 magnum is 1,400 Feet per Second.
