    WHY GRAMPS CARRIES 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 a 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 butt whoopin'....
    .author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

    Pretty good stuff!

    I agree carrying a gun is PITA. You are limited on cover garmets, can't remove them (as easy) if place is hot. If you travel with others its PITA. If you wind up going to a "NO guns" place its a PITA....
    But begging some POS not to hurt/kill you. see your family harmed.......is a bigger PITA.
