    Why I Carry a Gun

    Only applicable to US I suppose and while I disagree I don't live in the US :-), for context even cops in Ireland are unarmed (guns) and very few carry a taser different culture......

    Am awestruck by those instances of cultures being disarmed through control and subsequently destroyed unarmed and helpless, dear @Jim 🐝 Cody! That sounds so cold blooded! You need a licence and various approvals before owning a firearm here in India. Of course there are weapons acquired otherwise by some miscreants too am told.I have held and checked out a Colt .36 that an ex-cop uncle owns. For a moment there, holding it, I felt like a cowboy in the wild wild west. Could the need for owning firearms be related to how America was built long ago? i mean wasn't it like 'Have gun Will live' kinda thing once upon a time in the west? Protection from outlaws...from hustlers...from wild natives...from competitors...from thieves...from muggers...the land demanded it perhaos and still does apparently! Gun control in the US, if passed, would obviously strengthen the police force more than anyone else. And add to their numbers too. I wonder if that would be a good thing. That was a phenomenal read i felt. It had more than a dozen rounds in it!

    Too old to whoop ass? Not me. If I'm within arms reach, I do bad things to bad people. One thing I like about learning krav maga: it keeps my 60 year old ass from being too old to whoop ass, and I really know how to whoop ass. We learn how to disarm knife and gun assailants in the process of whooping their ass.

    If at any time anyone breaks into my home and tries to harm me or my family, or accosts or attacks me anywhere at anytime will be dealt with accordingly.

    Move to Toronto. You won't need a gun, because we're safe, sane people :)

    I salute you @Jim 🐝 Cody for exercising your sacred 2nd Amendment rights. This is a constitutional issue which the Supreme Court has upheld. Yes, every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms, just as every citizen has the right to free speech and free expression. There's probably a good reason why the Founding Father made this the 2nd Amendment and not a higher number.

    @Jim 🐝 Cody I love America, its one of my favourite countries and I visit as much as I can . Like South Africa where I also spend a lot of time due to my wife's family living there. I have never felt the need to arm myself. Guns, quite frankly scare me and 2nd ammendment or not, many in today's society are certainly not qualified or indeed responsible to carry a deadly weapon. Statistics out of America showing gun related deaths are appalling ( more than all Americans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined !) Sad that in a sophisticated country like America there seems to be an overwhelming fear that at some point they will be attacked ! I respect your opinion but unfortunately cannot agree with it.

    Your speaking to a world outside of the North America market, where these gun ownership beliefs are not followed. I believe in gun ownership, but wife threatens me to get that rifle out of my attic. My wife comes from 4 generations of LAPD in her family.

    I agree. Thank you for posting this. It takes courage in today's environment to take a pro-gun position.

    There is always much debate as to 'Which is the best gun?'. For me, that question needs some qualifiers and some reality checks. First, there is no ONE ULTIMATE gun - the conditions and tactical situations that you encounter will dictate which gun is optimal for that scenario. For example - a twelve gauge shot gun is absolutely worthless for long distance shooting, as is the .45 APC Colt 1911 Pistol. Simply the wrong choice for that target - but each of those guns is amazing for its' actual intended purpose.
    My favorite gun - is the Remington 870 shot gun, in a tactical chasis - short barrel, abbreviated stock or Bull Pup configuration. When I was deployed - this was my weapon of choice outside the camp when we went. If you need to open a door, clear a hallway, move people from the street - a shot gun says I am here to shot. There is nothing more recognizable than chambering a round into a pump shot gun. For home defense - my first choice is always the shot gun (yes, I have had to deploy the weapon at 300 in the damn morning in a domestic setting)
    That said - the best weapon to have when the shit hits the fan - is the weapon that you HAVE and that you are trained / familiar with. ~ because not having a gun, is a shit choice; it guarantees a victim outcome for you.
