    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

    20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
    Exterminated.

    ------------------------------

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of
    13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded
    Up and exterminated.
    ------------------------------

    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 ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE 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!

    Why do you carry a gun?
    In case I have to shoot someone.

    Political correctness aside, it's the most straight-forward and logical answer you can possibly give.

    I'd modify your answer to say:
    "in case I need to defend myself, my loved ones or anybody else threatened by criminals."

    Good post, but this one is not true.

    Germany established gun control in 1938
    It's started way before 1938.

    In 1919 and 1920, the German Weimar government passed very strict gun ownership restrictions.
    I know the Wikipedia is the not the best but here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Germany

    They must be happy now, because their gun-laws are much better than in most of the Eastern European countries.

    But that's not the answer if someone were to ask me, "Why do you carry a gun". Simply carrying it (assuming I'm OCing) might work as a crime prevention, but it won't do much in defense. I don't carry to defend myself. I shoot to defend myself.
