OK, so whats so confusing here?
Law abiding US Citizens have the lawful right to keep and bear firearms! This isn't brain surgery here or even rocket science! My outburst was over a
recently read post/reply [which will remain anonymous] with regards to which thread but, their argument against legally held/owned firearms is PURE
I once managed a fairly active retail establishment back in the 90s and during a routine nightly bank drop I was confronted by an armed assailant. He
pointed a revolver at me and made his demands. I was shocked at first but proceeded [thinking of my children] not making a fuss. After handing over to
him the bank drop container he stuck his firearm in my face and made some half-Assed political statement.
I then reached into my pocket and produced my own "Legally owned hand gun" and showed him I wasn't one to be "F"d with! His whole demeanor
changed at that point. His weapon was actually an early "Air soft" non lethal pistol. Had I'd been a stereotypical "Merican" I would have
blown his brains out and killed him.
That didn't happen!
Enough said is the truth, friend. I drove semis over the road for 7 years. I was in south Bronx, and had just delivered a load of corn syrup to a
bakery. I was pulling out of the lot to the street, and there was a stop and go light, I stopped. A young black kid jumped up on the step and pointed
a small automatic in my face, demanding my money. Having grown up with guns, I know about autos, and the hammer was not pulled back on his. So I
reached down to my storage pouch on the door panel and pulled out my .38 revolver, pointed it in his face, and thumbed back the hammer. He didn't
say a word, just fell back onto the ground, and ran off.
The Right to Bear Arms is a Right We the People can NEVER let go of. Once we do, TPTB will take us over completely, and people like you and I will be
locked up. Do the research, and you will see that every dictatorship began with a gun grab. The Swiss never gave up their guns during WW2, were they
invaded by the Nazis? No! Take a lesson. I sleep with a .44 cap and ball Remington under my mattress, within easy reach. Our area have recently
experiences some home invasions, and i think this will get worse as time goes on. Give up your guns, you give up your freedom. It's that simple.
