    That's a good response. Mind if I use that one?

    My usual answer is

    "Peace through Strength. It works for individuals just like it works for governments."

  5. "Why are you carrying that gun?"

    "I think the far more important question is: Why aren't you?"



    The fire extinguisher, seat belt and spare tire analogies work well also.

  6. Love this! Hilarious. Though, when asked, i've used the seatbelt analogy.

    I consider my weapon a life insurance policy that I hope I never have to cash in on. (But it IS comforting, all the same.)

    I laughed out loud when I first read this but the more I thought about it, the more sense it makes. Just where was a cop when you last needed one the most? I'll bet he/she were at best, minutes away... a major crime only takes seconds.

    "Because there are people in this world so evil that they would kill you and do things to your daughter that make most people vomit. Because law enforcement don't get to these incidents 93% of the time until it's too late. Because we live in the only country in the World that allows us to not be a victim to these evil people. And finally, because I don't believe you, your family, me, or my family deserves to be victimized.

    Care to play through?" <<Big smile>>
