    Got this from USCCA and thought it was to good not to pass on.


    Why I Carry A Gun

    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.

    A friend recently told me this:

    I carry a gun because a police officer is too heavy to carry around.

    From where I live even if a cop was at the bottom of my road on the blacktop, they might make it to the house in 10 minutes. With the snow that we have now they might not even get here. Pretty much on my own if anything happens. Shots fired 911 call with ideal conditions could get city cops here in 15 minutes??? Since I moved to Oregon I have always lived in places where I knew I was on my own.

    Reminds me of the old man who called 911
    "911 what is your emergency?"
    I need the police out here quick there's 5 teenagers tearing up my shed.
    I'm sorry sir all our units are tied up at the moment and can't get there for 30minutes go inside and lock your doors...guy hangs up
    calls back in5minutes: I called earlier Don't worry about them burglars I took ol' betsy my side by side and kilt'em all...
    In 10minutes the place is swarming with deputies and ambulances.
    Cops look around no sign of afight.
    deputy says" I thought you killed those boys?"
    Yeah and I thought you couldn't git here in less'en 30minutes..."

    Because it's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6!

    I carry a gun because I hate my mother and have a tiny weiner. Dog tells me that I'll get even with you all one day.
