As seen on Facebook (again, but a good reminder):
I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face…and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser, yet you are safer for having me next to you.
I won’t shoot you. My gun won’t pull it’s own trigger. It is securely holstered with the trigger covered. It can’t just go off.
However, rest assured that is a lunatic walks into the grocery store and pulls out a rifle, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family.
I may get shot before I can pull the trigger…but, I won’t die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my loved ones’ lives. I won’t be a helpless victim. I choose not to be. I promise that if I die, my body will be surrounded with spent brass.
As for you, I don’t ask you to carry a gun. If you are not comfortable, then please don’t. But I demand to keep my Right to choose to not be a helpless victim. There is evil in the world and if evil has a gun, I will too…
