    I have heard this saying in some movies and from some people, such as my brother ( who never like guns but was a sigue-sigue sputnik gang member during his high school days back in the 1980s ).....that people who need guns for protection are really wimps or weaklings. But my reason for buying a handgun in the first place was that I really like guns since I was a kid. I did not need a gun for protection since I rarely have enemies. I just like guns.

    So do you agree that those who need guns for self-defense are really wimps?

    the act of grabbing a gun for defense means that you are willing to fight.

    bakit, ano daw ang matapang? ang nag susuntokan, bare hands? boxing? karate etc?

    pang elementary yan.... umpisa high school mga siga sa amin me bitbit na kutsilyo, balisong, brass knuckle, switch blade etc.

    pag college 38 snubnose na....and so it evolves.

    say what they want to say but I will not fight fair - I will fight to win or survive and I will use anything that will give me an advantage.

    anyway, they use it to judge you kung matapang ka ba haha

    I dont have to justify to anybody my existence, how, why I live like this.

    I dont subscribe to anybody's judgement any time all the time...just shoot!

    The gun is the great equalizer. How else can a 4'11" woman or an 80+ year old handicapped WWII veteran defend themselves against a 6', 200 lbs. attacker? Would they be considered wimps?!

    I'm inclined to believe that those who genuinely subscribe to this belief is the subject of Freud's discussion on fear of weapons and sexual retardation.

    Some people need to read military history re - invasion tactics to understand why men always seek an unfair advantage through weapons...and I mean from the crudest caveman club, self-made inmate spike to the state-of the-art-real-world-hurt-delivering-s**t hits-the-fan-assault rifle, anti-materiel long range target interdiction SWS to the most freakingly scary nuke capable ICBM.

    Capable men have always... from ancient times sought to acquire and aspired to forge "the thunderbolt of Zeus" to win peace and freedom for those who they hold dear and defeat those who would do them harm.

    The rest cowered for mercy and sold their brothers and sisters to their would be foreign masters in exchange for a paltry piece of pseudo-freedom.

    Just read the American Second Amendment to include the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783) or American War of Independence and one will find out why weapons were essential in the struggle.


    Some people need to learn by talking one-on-one with Israelis who were former IDF personnel who served in Rahmalah, Jennin and West Bank… Or S. Koreans who went in harm’s way while in the military.

    'nuff said. Just my $.02 worth.

    Peace.

    I don't want to hurt anybody, and I just want to
    mind my own business, lawfully and peacefully.

    If anybody tries to hurt me and mine, I'll want to
    make them my business, lawfully and violently,

    If that's being a wimp, fine by me.
    If anyone has a problem with it, they can cry me a river.

    Awful lot of wimpy cops and soldiers, I guess.

    I don't bother responding when questions like that come up. The last one was a Canadian that insisted that I was living in fear... couldn't quite grasp the concept that I didn't HAVE anything to fear :rofl:

    arent you guys talking about the anti gun crowd?

    The TS said ang nagsabi was a former gang member. Not exactly nandy pacheco's crowd and definitely not against the use of a gun

    Where's that sig line? "If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics suck"
    Call me what you will but I'm not here to play games. I've got a wife, 2 daughters and a son on the way who all depend on me. If someone wants to go toe to toe lets rock. If they think they're gonna grab something to get the upper hand, well then... If someone tries to rob me I will pull on them, given the opportunity. At that time it turns into a standoff. If they continue the attack then it turns into a death wish.

    Wimps can't use guns. The loud crack of a firing gun alone will rattle or distort their nerves. So people who are in possession and shooting their guns can't be called weaklings. It's the other way around. I think. Am i right?:supergrin:

    Yes, I'm a wimp.

    All I want is peace...... through superior firepower!

    Seriously though, a gun is nothing more than a tool.

    Would you consider someone a wimp because he drove a car from Manila to Baguio instead of trekking on foot for one or two days?

    Would you consider someone a wimp because they used a hammer to drive a nail into the wall instead of their bare fist?

    Tools are created by man to make difficult tasks easier.

    There are people who don't NEED guns to defend themselves. Guns just make the task easier.

    They're not wimps; just practical.
