    Not sure if this is in the right spot


    The quintessential reason why Grandpa carries a gun.
    Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to "A Little Gun History" about half way down staggering numbers!
    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 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 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 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 because police do not protect you from crime; they 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 a whoopin'!
    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY.
    PLEASE DON'T THINK FOR A MOMENT,THAT THIS COULDN'T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO!

    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. With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'. During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World! 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.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD!
    SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.
    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!
    IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
    I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you're not a believer, please reconsider the true facts.
    This is history; not what's being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.

    Germany had gun control before that man ever came to power. The registration lists were there for him to use.:s0102:

    Treaty of Versailles...They were all pretty much disarmed for years, and Hitler took advantage of it...They had shotguns and .22's!

    Now maybe if they were all well armed they would have had a chance......Who took all their guns away anyhow? It wasn't Hitler.....Hmmmmm

    Had a print out of this that I picked up at the South West Washington Arms Collectors Show [the Square Dance Hall Gun Show in Brush Prairie] a couple months ago that I wanted to get in the computer to post on here. And look what happened, I put it off and fredball does the work for me.

    THANK YOU, SIR.

    It really sums up a lot of the way I think.
    Not to mention there is probably 56 million people around the world that would vote against gun control if they were still alive.

    History does repeat itself.
    Share this with your friends that don't think it could happen here.

    AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE VOTE AND VOTE AND DON'T FORGET TO
    VOTE

    REMEMBER,
    TO NOT VOTE FOR THE GOOD SIDE
    IS EFFECTIVELY A VOTE FOR THE WRONG SIDE.

    ANYBODY WANT TO SEE HITLERY PRESIDENT?
    I DON'T, IT WON'T END WELL FOR US.

    SO MAKE SURE YOU VOTE AGAINST THE LYING, CHEATING, SLEAZY B*TCH
    SO THEY DON'T ADD US TO THE LIST ABOVE.
