No. I am not referring to all the ego-manic punks and thugs with a total lack of empathy for others, the gang-bangers
and evil-doers whose only control over the world's inhabitants comes from the muzzle of a gun or from the point of a knife,
those whose insidious craving for methamphetamine (crystalline hydrochloride), crack, or any of these other mind-destroying
drugs leads them to never-ending armed robberies, murder or some other daily assaults on the innocents. Everyone knows those
lost souls carry the weapons they think they need and that they have no regard for any concept that tells them that they are
doing so illegally and for nefarious purposes. They just don't care and no anti-gun law will worry them or prevent them
doing exactly as they see fit.
This is addressed to the millions of decent, law-abiding citizens who feel
the overwhelming need to defend themselves, their families and others against the seemingly endless criminals who wish to
hurt them or even kill them. This is addressed to the millions in this country who carry a gun legally, as police officers
do. It's called SELF-DEFENSE and even our illustrious Supreme Court has recently acknowledged that Americans have the
Second Amendment right to own weapons for that purpose.
Have you ever wondered why governments are typically so opposed
to such a right? It's basically very simple, of course. Totalitarian governments have a hard time imposing their will
on an armed populace. It's just too much trouble and downright dangerous to legislators and governing authorities. Is
it surprising, therefore, that the District of Columbia has such anti-gun attitudes? Isn't that where all our national
legislators may have legitimate concerns and fears revolving around their safety? They even have their own police force to
protect them with the motto “You elect them, we protect them.”
This is America, however, not
some European enclave. Those with any discerning mental processes have long ago recognized the fact that if you forbid law-abiding
citizens to own or carry guns, only the criminals, who could not care less about the fine points of the law, will carry them,
leaving all others vulnerable to their vicious and killing antics.
carry a gun for self-defense purposes in accordance with your state laws, open or concealed. You probably also hope with all
sincerity that you shall never have to use it. But if it happens, are you ready?
Your FIRST defense will
be the physical act of bringing your gun into play. You may kill your assailant in an act of justifiable homicide. Have you
prepared yourself sufficiently to win that battle?
Your SECOND defense will have to be dealing with the American
Justice System. Do you know what to do or what to expect? Again, are you ready? Police, State Attorneys, Judges, Jails, Juries,
Defense Attorneys, criminal and civil prosecution . . . along with all the relatives of the attacker who now want YOUR hide?
This is, by far, the more dangerous of the two, what with political and personal agendas in play by all of the participants
in the criminal justice system, not the least of which being the 'jury of your peers,' a misnomer at best.
Do You Worry About that Aftermath of a Self-Defense Shooting? YOU SHOULD!
But you don't want to have to go it alone!!!
