PROTECTING OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS… it’s about protecting your families!!!

Gun control is not about guns; it’s about control!

Why carry 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 an ass 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 ass whoopin’.

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are “citizens”.  Without them, we are “subjects”.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win.
There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.
The final weapon is the brain.
All else is supplemental.

SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.  (They have a militia, rather than a standing army.)


I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!
If you are too, please forward.

My thanks to John today, for forwarding me the above letter from the anonymous grandpa.

I think if there is any one major sign that our liberty and our society and freedom in general, as a people (as we have come to enjoy it), are at serious risk today, it is how nobody any longer is responsible for themselves, and how people are always looking to others to be responsible for them.

That was most certainly not the mindset of our founding fathers; and that my friend is also a sure sign of a nation that is about to be taken over by their government!

We live in a very violent and dangerous world today, and it’s getting worse by the minute, in case you haven’t noticed; and haven’t been watching the evening news!

The people who have this idea that the way to defend our country is to lay down our arms, so that our enemy’s won’t feel threaten by us, are not only naive, but they are very stupid… and some of these people are leading our government today!

It is not guns that are evil, it is the people who sometimes use them; and it makes about as much sense to say let’s eliminate the public’s access to guns in order to control crime… thereby leaving only the criminal element armed and leaving us citizens defenseless… as it does to say let’s make cars illegal as a means to eliminate all the many deaths each year that are caused by drunk drivers… what does the one have to do with the other?

This whole issue about gun control is about BIG government controlling us; and as the woman in the video pointed out, our forefathers gave us the Second Amendment to protect us from people in Government who would take our liberty from us!

I pray that the people in our nation wake up and see what’s going on; and also that we as a people will once again begin to take on and find some of that courage and pioneer spirit, that caused our forefathers to take risks, and brave the wilderness, and forage a way for themselves and their families, to find a better life; and who also fought a Revolutionary war against Mother England, and were forced to fight for what they believed in. This freedom and this liberty that so many today take for granted, did not come without a cost!

And lastly, but certainly the most important of all… I pray that our nation will once again become ONE NATION UNDER GOD; or as Ronald Reagan once said, “Or we will surely become one nation that has gone under!”

May God Bless America… and may Christians continue to watch and pray for our fair country… in Jesus name. Amen
