Folks, there is evil in the world and that evil is armed. Asking the good, no, forcing
the good to be at a constant disadvantage in the arms race is just
another face of that evil. It is monstrous and intolerable. Those who
champion universal disarmament are creating an underclass of people who
are nothing more than potential statistics waiting for the inevitable.
We're seeing the proof literally every day.
[snip] I am a gun owner, a shooter and an American. I will not lay down my arms
until the day I die. I know those on the anti gun side wish (and plan)
for that occurrence but today is not that day. Today I will contemplate
my role as protector, as champion for those who have voluntarily chosen
not to take up arms or who, for whatever reason, cannot. For the weak
and the innocent and the helpless. I will reaffirm my vow and my oath
and I will see to my body and my weapons that I will ever be ready to
preserve and defend. Because evil walks the face of the earth and no
amount of hand wringing, laws or intentions will alter that in even the
smallest way. I am an American Gun Owner.
You owe it to yourself, and your loved ones, to read this excellent essay.
