Which just furthers my point...

No shit!

I give up...

I've tried a few times to clean up the images in that email to no avail...sorry it sucks, if you really *must* see, then email me and I'll forward.

STFU, seriously.

I received an email today, no surprise I get lots/day. Little background, I like guns, moreover I like my liberties. I'm not however in the "gun-nut camp" but most people assume because I carry, because I like to shoot...I'm a conservative gun-nut. I guess I'm "coming out" today...

Hey gun-nuts! I think you are a bunch of ignorant, fear mongering, narrow-minded buffoons.

So the email:

Read the whole thing some very interesting facts

This just about says it all. Now I wont have to explain my guns and the use of them...


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
(My Fav stolen pic!)

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

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

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'. unknown (but obviously brilliant)



In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. >From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. >From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
---- ------------- -------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970. >From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. >From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

List of 7 items:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the

shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.



I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

My response initially was to stop reading in the first 3 seconds...but I was trapped in a I read.

My thoughts on this? Well, since you asked...

Her multi colored hair, saggy breasts, poor attempt at military style dress, (honestly WTF is that jacket?) that sh!tty nylon bullsh!t holster, holding what appears to be a Springfield XD were enough to distract me from the crappy AR...then there was the alleged quote from the grandfather about 'busting a cap' but I completely lost it with the pic of the Beretta with the safety orange tip...

If they want me to take any of this fear mongering seriously, provide some citations for the claims they make. Relating gun control to the killing of German Jewish citizens is a stretch to say the least.

I'm weary of all these kinds of fear mongering rhetoric bullsh!t. I'm not afraid, and I'm not swayed by some bullshit map of an AIDS rapist (seriously WTF did that come from?) and my daughter? First off my daughter can't own a firearm...secondly what does the condom have to do with anything?

I did read the whole thing...I question if there were any "facts."

There were however several attempts to sway my opinion by the use of sex and fear...Never gonna work on me. Fear requires ignorance, and I ask way too many damn questions. As far as sex goes...please.

They want to complain about .gov spending? Seriously? They talked about wasting millions? Please. What about the billions wasted in foreign lands?

How about the TRILLIONS wasted on failed business with sh!tty greedy business practices?

They want gun owners to do something about the .gov in a country whose population is more interested in voting for 'American Idol' than the leader of the nation?

Methinks they are looking at the wrong place for the root cause. It's not the's the apathy of "We the People."
