Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Why Grandpa carries a gun

A frequent reader sent this to me...and so I'm posting it here...
PEOPLE ASK WHY?

Why 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'.....
