Why I don’t carry a gun! (Ladies, please ignore the gender, this is not meant to exclude you and probably just as appropriate).


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'.


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 when you least
expect it 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 anyone. I carry a gun because
I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed with my boots off, 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
should 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 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, call someone in to clean up the mess and then try to solve the crime.


Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take
an ass whoopin'."


Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes.

The response time of a handgun is 700 to 1400 FPS. Add a couple of seconds for the draw.

What I find rather funny is that MARTA has a list of banned items on their property. You are not allowed to have food, drink, drugs, alcohol, or any form of a lethal weapon except for firearms (they explicitly list that right on the warning in nice big text). You can't bring a knife, but your Glock is perfectly fine.

The right to bear arms is one of the reasons stopping me from moving to america this second.

The biggest one is that I'm too young and broke xD

Amen... also the best thing about america's right to bear arms is that the population IS the army, if ever we get invaded :3

Actually, America is the country more likely to DO the invading (Iraq, anyone?).

I'd love to see that with less contradictions, but ultimately, I don't think you can deliver.

This is my new rapeface.
I live in Belgium. I don't carry my gun because it's too damn big, and noone else has a gun here, save for a mailicious or paranoid few.


Me? I'm a hunter. A furry hunter.

I don't carry a gun because I don't have one to carry.
I don't carry a gun because you're basically screwed if someone has you at point blank range anyway.
So what do I carry? A walking stick, a small knife, and myself.

I dunno; it just seems dangerous to have every Tom, Dick and Jane packing heat wherever they go. Carrying a weapon purely for self-defense is one thing, but you don't get a switch that shuts it off when something makes you emotional. All I'm saying is that people can do stupid things when they're aggravated, and it's better not to give them the (easily available) option of doing something lethal.

Honestly the problem is that too many bad/stupid people have guns in america, we go a bit insane with our "Right to bear arms" crap sometimes, you don't need a gun, especially not a big one, at the most maybe a rifle or a shotgun if you're in the country, if you're in a city carry a taser or mace or somethin, not a damn 45.
