Stop beating your head
against the wall. You will never convince some folks that guns are
anything except instruments of evil. You’re just wasting your time
Like with so many other
things, I have a theory as to why some will never accept the idea
that guns should have a place in your life.
Think about who it is
that condemns guns. It’s the same individuals who believe that, before
you can use any kind of violent act to defend yourself from an attacker,
you must first take into consideration that the little thug, who’s
trying to kill you or your loved ones, might have had a troubled
childhood. They believe that, before you can judge him, you must, “walk
a mile in his shoes. It’s only fair.” And, life is about fairness.
Listen carefully - I’m
not going to judge anyone, in the Wal-Mart parking lot. There is only
one judgment call to be made:
“Is my life in immediate and imminent
Then, there’s the issue
of using a gun to defend yourself against a poor little street urchin,
who can only afford a knife? It’s just not fair.
I don’t carry a gun
because I’m looking for a fair fight. The truth of the
matter is that
I’m not looking for any kind of a fight, at all. Leave me and mine
alone, and I will live out my life, without ever getting into a fight.
But, if forced to defend myself, I don’t want the fight to be a fair one. I want
it to be horribly one-sided and swiftly concluded. I want to win.
There is no other acceptable outcome.
Winning is a concept
lost on some folks. They will never understand a concept that does not
excuse bad behavior in the name of ‘fairness’.
With some, it will
always be a matter of ‘fairness’, as they define it. Some folks will never get it. You
will never change their minds.
“If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.”
― John Steinbeck
