    Reason to carry?

    Wow I'm having a fun week. 2 posts a new record for me! Last night my favorite girlfriend and I (wife) went for our walk around the block. I always carry on this walk but it is no big statement; we are out in the country and if we see one other person it is an event. We are about to complete the loop ,1/4 mile left, and I point out 4 deer standing in a field on a hill above our house. All of a sudden they scatter and we get to watch a dark grey 4 legged creature chase them. A lone wolf close to my digs!

    reasons to carry?Hmmmmm.............my current list, subject to your evaluation and approval;

    wife's former friends who tried to wreck my marriage, and have threatened to get me

    former friends of mine who went to the 'dark side'

    criminals i have testified against and are now back out on the streets

    criminal element intrenched in our society

    criminal element present in proximity to our shop

    former drug running co-workers

    protection of myself, my family, and my property

    advancement of open carry rights

    i think that about covers it, valid enough?

    added on edit; almost forgot one! to be a social irritant to the leftists, and narrow minded government 'employees'

    I need a reason? Ok, I'll give one:

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    Reason to Carry

    When I joined the Army in 1970 I took an oath to "protect and defend against all enemies both foreign and domestic".

    I don't remember anything about an expiration date. So it is STILL my sworn duty to Protect and Defend And there are more than enough domestic enemies to go around.

    Other than that, if I don't look after myself, who will? It is not the legal responsibility of the cops to protect me 24/7/365.

    Absolutely fabulous, seriously. What other reason is more important?

    It's my six and no one else is responsible for it.

    Good enough?

    Right on. if we don't stand up for our rights, then we should not be offended if someone else won't.
