    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 butt 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 of ours 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. Just watch the evening news for proof.

    I don't carry a gun because I'm evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil that exists in the world. There is plenty of it.

    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 angry at 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, surrounded by those who love me and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon surrounded by people who just stare at my lifeless body.

    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 welcomed as 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 if unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

    I don't carry a gun because I love guns. 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.

    The police do not protect you from crime, they attempt to deter crime, but usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

    As for me personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an butt whoopin'.....along with all the other reasons.
