    The Open Carry Argument

    I have seen this article before and came across it again in a Hardee's thread. I think that everyone that decides to carry should read it and since we have so many new people coming on it needs to be posted again.

    Thanks for sharing, I missed this as I perused the site since I joined earlier this year.

    Very good read and pretty much espouses the same intelectual thought proccess I followed when I was determining how I would carry. I shall have to forward this to my father, he doesn't carry at all (only recently bought a Rem 870 for home defense) but seems to lean heavily toward CC when we talk.

    I had to Facebook post this article
    A lady friend once argued that a lot of gun owners that are victims of a crime end up getting killed with their own weapons. That's absurd! If some criminal is going to kill me with my own gun, they're going to have to beat me to death with it, because it's going to be empty by the time they get to it.

    That was quite well written and well argued; I have to say that I agree with most of it.

    I carry because I can. Heck, in this world you're crazy not to. Even cops don't carry to stop criminals.....they do it for self-defense. Should be some kind of sign

    Because they want to control you and your property, and it's much more comfortable for them to do that if you are helpless.
    I will not knowingly initiate force. I am a self owner.

    Let the record show that I did not consent to be governed. I did not consent to any constitution. I did not consent to any president. I did not consent to any law except the natural law of "mala en se." I did not consent to the police. Nor any tax. Nor any prohibition of anything. Nor any regulation or licensing of any kind.

    I feel that guns exist and that the right of a citizen to keep and bare arms provides a balance of power between citizen and state. Their existence being necessary in a free state provides that just like drugs, if someone wants to attain one, they will find the means. And the the best defense to those criminals is a good offense. If you can't deal with it move to a country that makes self-defense illegal. I'm sure you will "feel" much safer.
