    Why I Carry

    Hello from Alaska. These are not my words. Don't know who said them, but it reflects my feeling exactly. Enjoy.

    I donít carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I donít carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place. I donít carry a gun because Iím paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world. I donít carry a gun because Iím evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world. I donít carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government. I donít carry a gun because Iím angry. I carry a gun so that I donít have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. I donít 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 donít 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 donít carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing armed thugs, I AM inadequate. I donít carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me. ďPolice ProtectionĒ 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. I carry a gun because Iím too young to die and too old to take a beating.

    My oldest daughter sent this to me a few years ago. It is a great quote. I never knew where it came from, I do now :-)
    "Work Hard, Do Your Best, Keep Your Word, Never Get Too Big For Your Britches, Trust In God and Never Forget a Friend. "

    Alaskamike, that was awsome. I am one of those guys that seem to be challenged when it comes to expressing why I feel like I do and the right of it. That explains it perfectly. Now, if we can just get Congress to read it! Semper Fi!

    I don't carry a gun because I am looking for a fight but if the fight is looking for me I carry to win the fight.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
