I'll get rid of mine if St. Peter makes me check them at the gate.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Well, the correct attitude is, "I'll get rid of my guns if they pry them out of my cold dead hands."

It is better to be tried by twelve than buried by one.

Do you think they will ever give up their guns?

no.


The obvious truism (that is both obvious and true):

If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

Agree with the sentiment, but I believe the phrase is actually "It's better to be tried by twelve than carried by six."

You are buried by one cemetery employee - who usually uses a backhoe to dig the grave. I knew the farmers in my area that dug the graves at the cemetery.

"Better to be tried by twelve than carried by six", was popularized by G. Gordon Liddy.

Family is well, everyone; it's me that's currently broke...

The wife and kids are on their way up to the sister-in-law's place up in Mahomet, IL. I'm at home laid up with a massive herniated disk (doctor's description, not mine) so I couldn't make a two day drive up there.

I wasn't debating the fact that it takes more than one to bury you, just that I thought you misquoted the phrase.

No problem. My dad was actually carried by his four sons so that six number isn't actually a constant.

Sorry about the disk. If I don't run and do sit-ups I get lower back problems.

You aren't in the "need to pile up pillows so I can flip onto my stomach to crawl somewhere" condition are you?

No, I'm only at the "Taking large quantities of painkillers and keeping my back iced" stage currently. I've been in the "needing to stack pillows to flip myself over" condition before; that's really no fun.

I had back surgery two years ago and they came very close to fusing the vertebra; looks like they're going to have to go back in and do the job right this time.

I won't be getting rid of mine...

Why I Carry a Gun

My old grandpa said to me 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.'

I don't carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don't carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil.
I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government.
I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government..

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.



Police protection is an oxymoron.

Free citizens must protect themselves.

Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.



Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously brilliant)
