Colion makes some good vids that's for sure. Thanks bud. Now if somebody has a link to the letter someone wrote about why they carry I would be very thankful. The letter I'm refering to was the hands down best reasoning I've seen to date about why a person should carry a gun.

The jist of it was that there is only two ways to convince somebody to do anything. By reason and by force. The gun did not interfere with anyone who wants to reason, only those who wish to impose their will by force. Anyway, good vid.

Love it.

The only thing I feel he missed is fear of the many drug addicts that roam through our society that will stop at nothing for their next fix.

You got that right!

I think you are talking about this letter....

"The Gun Is Civilization" by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.
If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing
me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every
human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception.
Reason or force, that's it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people
exclusively interact through persuasion.
Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction and the only thing
that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it
may sound to some. When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force.
You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to
negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal
footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a
19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of
drunken guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical
strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force
equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if
all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a
[armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's
potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it
has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the
young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized
society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a
society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that
otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several
ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior
party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force,
watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a
bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works
solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are
armed, the field is level.
The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as
it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force
equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but
because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot
be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it
enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would
interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by
force. It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a
civilized act.
By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret.)

He makes some good vids.

However, if you're on GT, you probably already know why you carry. So share this vid with as many folks as you can!

There should be holsters built into every dressing room to accommodate the 2nd ammendment.

Very well stated. I'm viewing on my iPad, can someone tell me the title of the video on YouTube? I'd like to share it. I searched under the title of this thread on the YouTube app but did not see this video listed.

Search for "Why I Carry" on YouTube.

It's like insurance.

I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Very nice change of pace from the usual Youtube idiots, slurping a beer while Cheetos dust gets all over their CCW "badge".
