WHY GRANDPA CARRIES A GUN…

A world history lesson……lest we forget.

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.

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 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!

Thank God for GUN CONTROL

Canada has strict gun laws; ownership is very restricted.
So the following story must be fake news. Can’t be anything else now can it?

2 cops among 4 killed in eastern Canada shooting

A shooting in a small Canadian city early Friday left four people dead, including two police officers, under circumstances that were not yet explained but struck a nerve in a country that has been roiled in recent months by several instances of mass violence. People in Fredericton, the capital of New Brunswick in the eastern part of the country, said they heard as many as 20 gunshots following a confrontation that prompted police to initially cordon off a large section of the city with emergency vehicles and order residents to remain inside their homes and businesses.

Finally, after a tense period of waiting, authorities disclosed the toll: Among the four killed were two officers, a rare case of police killed in the line of duty in Canada. Their names were not released. [snip]

The shooting comes as Canada wrestles with a string of violence, including an instance in Toronto last month where a man with a handgun opened fire in a crowded part of the city, killing two people and wounding 13 before he either shot himself or was killed by police.

In April, a man who linked himself to a misogynistic online community used a van to run down pedestrians in a busy part of Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 14. [snip]

How did this Toronto shooting happen since handguns are verboten. Another attack in this same city, a man used a full auto transmission assault van to run down 24 people, killing 10.

The question on thinking persons minds is, “The blame for those shootings will rest on the gun. Will they lay blame on the van for those killings?
If not, why not. Not everyone needs a full auto auto, certainly not in a city.

Daily Insanity

In what is he afraid in his worthless life? Shoot him? No gun owner will waste a round. Perhaps some rabid Lefty might to make a name for himself.
Isn’t it unlawful to abuse the mentally handicapped?

David Hogg protests outside NRA HQ — protected by armed guards?

Anti-gun protester David Hogg hates guns — but apparently not enough to not be protected by them.

Hogg and a collective of anti-Second Amendment agitators protested outside the NRA headquarters on Saturday, and as the group points out, he was protected by armed guards.

The NRA’s photos show, among other things, Hogg with several security agents.

For his part, Hogg unwittingly tweeted a photo showing additional armed security protecting him.

In an attempt to ridicule the pro-2A counter-protesters, the student undermined his own message.

Hogg’s photo shows at least three men who appear to be security agents. Armed police officers stand in the parking lot, ready to protect the teen with big, bad guns. [snip]

This isn’t unusual; Rosie O’Donnell also rants about guns. She has armed security at home and on the street.

The normal cant from the Left is “It’s good for thee, but not for me” is as common as stink on a hog.

Calling 9-1-1

Observations

We have let this go for a while lest we are accused of being intolerant, heartless, insensitive and probably Nazis. That isn’t the case; we simply wanted to clear the trash that wells up from the Progressive swamp. Note that this shooting motivated as it was, occurred in Maryland, a state with strong anti-gun laws and, routinely, traffic stops of out of state elicit vehicular searches of autos with tags of gun favoring states.

One has to wonder given state gin laws, how much worse the carnage at this paper would have been if their were other guns present. You know Liberals/Progressives are ALWAYS right, except when they’re wrong.

Personally, we have no desire to be near them or their states since we seldom find them right.

Biased Agendas

A spark of sanity from one Democrat in an otherwise darkness of clabbering Jackass insanity. It was soon extinguished.

Hard Reality: No Mainstream Gun Control Law Would Have Stopped the Texas High School Horror

Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner told CNN’s State of the Union that he doesn’t think “there’s a single piece of legislation” that could have prevented last week’s horrible killing at a Texas high school, adding that a more holistic “series of actions” are needed.  His other nod to reality was acknowledging, after being prodded by host Jake Tapper, that Democrats failed to act on gun control when they controlled all three elected levers of power in Washington, DC during the Obama years. “Perhaps, in retrospect, more should have been done,” he said, amid various evasions and excuses.

Warner — who has moved to the left with the rest of his party on guns — also mentioned background checks and “military-style assault weapons” in the interview, each of which is irrelevant to the latest incident.  The Texas killer was not legally permitted to own guns, and used more traditional (i.e., not an “assault rifle”) firearms during a rampage that left ten people dead.  Nevertheless, these facts, which Warner at least partially recognizes, didn’t stop one of his colleagues from Connecticut from unleashing his preferred brand of demagogic post-tragedy moral indignation:

Chris Murphy (Dolt) CT tweeted: Let’s call it like it is: the horrifying inaction of Congress, slaughter after slaughter, has become a green light to would-be shooters, who pervert silence into endorsement.

I’m left unclear as to what exactly Murphy is talking about. As the New York Times has confirmed, the shooter in Texas used a shotgun and a .38-caliber revolver — and nothing else besides. Moreover, because he was 17-years-old, he was ineligible to purchase a gun either privately or commercially, and thus had no contact with NICS background-check system that Murphy wants to expand. What, precisely, did “Congress” fail to do here?
What perverted signal did it send? What “endorsement” did it provide? … As for the implication that is embedded in Murphy’s tweet — namely, that declining to prohibit a given tool is in some way an endorsement of those who would abuse it — well, I can think of few more destructive ideas in a free country. Was Thurgood Marshall sending a “green light” to the KKK when he voted with the majority in Brandenburg v. Ohio? Are the many opponents of the Patriot Act offering an “endorsement” to the devotees of Jihad? Hardly. By suggesting that his opponents disagree with him because they are happy to “allow” massacres, rather than because they think that his proposals (such as they are) will be useless, Murphy is seriously damaging our debate over guns, and hurting our political culture.

“As far as I can see, there are only two reasonable ways to interpret this behavior: 1) That Senator Murphy is a grandstander who does not understand this issue well enough to do anything but shout “do something!” whenever he sees an abomination on the news; or 2) That Senator Murphy actually does want to ban shotguns and revolvers and everything else besides — and, by extension, that he wants to repeal the Second Amendment to the Constitution in order to get it done.”  Which is it, Senator?  This is why so many gun rights supporters view the gun control movement’s loudest voices as peddling in ignorance or dishonesty.  Take this tweet, for instance, which was shared thousands of times: [snip]
