 Why Grandpa carries a gun

PEOPLE ASK  WHY?

Why 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 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 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)

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'.  Without them, we are 'subjects'.

 
During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends.

 
The purpose of fighting is to win.
There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.
The final weapon is the brain.
All else is supplemental. 
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER!
DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!
If you are too, please forward.

Actually, they have the second highest gun crime rate in the industrialized world, after the United States.

Ah, yes, all that federal gun control legislation that's been passed recently, like...

...and those gun control laws that were recently upheld by the courts, like...

I wonder what people did in the time before the invention of GUNS, since they now solve all problems and leave us with an era of unparalleled peace.

Hmmmm, the person writing this must be seriously depressed.....blech!

You still have gun related violence! What about children gun related violence? You have parents who are ignorant and don't put the guns away high enough...away from the kids.

There is a site called lamebook and occasionally post photos of idiotic parents with their children in the presence of guns. Unfriggin believable! >:(

Ooh, ooh, I want to try!

I don't carry a gun because I'm left-handed.
I carry a gun because I see left-handed people in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I accidentally forgot to take it out of my bag.
I carry a gun because there are people who forget to take stuff out of their bags in the world.

I don't carry the gun because I like children's Tylenol.
I carry a gun because I've lived long enough to know that children's Tylenol is gross.

Grandpa would have shown that Imperial
Japanese Army what for, I tell you what.

ferschitz said...

I couldn't read it, but I appreciate what Katz said.

Serious rightwing thinktank scary scary fear fear booga booga crap on steriods. If citizens actually believe this junk - sadly I think we do - I think it's one explanation why conservatives are bloody messed up & confused.

UGH

Let me try:

I don't carry a gun because the US President is black
I carry a gun because the US President is a "n"-word

I don't carry a gun because I'm scared
I carry a gun because I'm brainwashed by s**t like this

Wait, so now you want us to imitate the Swiss? The neutral, welfare state loving Swiss?

Um, no. Try again. The Japanese didn't invade because they knew they couldn't do it, and because it would serve no military purpose. They had neither the manpower nor materials to mount a successful invasion of the US, and even if they did it would have been a fools errand. Their plan was to strike first, strike hard, win sea battles, and then sue for peace. They did this because it was their only real shot at defeating what they knew was a larger and richer country.

Just because we have a hard on for ill advised invasions of far away lands doesn't mean that everyone does.

Afghanistan has guns everywhere, and look how peaceful and law abiding it is!

Somalia has a flood of weapons, and look what a utopia it is!

Guns for everyone! Guns are the answer!

"Guns for everyone! Guns are the answer!"

Yes, why didn't I think of that when I trying to figure out what to serve my family for dinner last night??? Stir fried guns and rice is nice, oh my!

I like guns I enjoy shooting guns. But I do not like people like this. I am not going to defend myself from the government with guns.

I was at the firing range today, and the guy next to me had a harness on his leg with an automatic pistol, an extra magazine, a multi-tool, a flashlight, and ANOTHER gun strapped to his waist, plus shooting gloves and a safari vest.

Guess that in the future, this e-mail will have to be a whole lot longer.

Liberal woman, here.

There are a lot of good reasons for owning and carrying guns. Most of them center around those who spend their time robbing for wallets and breaking into homes.

My pistols aren't very good against machine guns, bombs, and nukes. But we have a Second Amendment for a good reason.

Hooray4US said...

No one's complaining about the 2d Amendment, but ridiculous screeds like this are cause for justifiable complaint. This is just stupid, and btw, neither the Dems, nor Obama, have tried to change anything with the 2d Amendment. All the hyperventilating about guns in rightwing forwards are brought to you by the guns & ammo industry, who are only too happy to separate you from your money. But, hey, it's still a free country, so go buy yourself tons-o-guns. I'm sure it'll be a big help... because? who the eff knows. just because.

Except for the fact that the Swiss no longer issue ammunition for the rifle.
