Because I CanPosted by Janell Maria Troutt on April 3, 2013
It is apparent that liberals do not react well to facts and statistics. Despite all the logical answers they receive, they keep on asking the same annoying question: Why does a person NEED a certain gun. Well, I am just going to be blunt. I’ve said before that we have a Bill of Rights; not a Bill of Needs. I’ve stated fact, but liberals still keep on asking. One argument I have heard is that free speech is regulated (it is illegal to yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theater,) so the right to keep and bear arms should be regulated too. This is a faulty analogy. Taking away someone’s gun(s) because you think he or she might shoot someone, is like taking someone’s right to speech because he or she might yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater. That is preposterous!
So, here is what I have to say to the question of why I need an AR-15, a Sig Sauer, etc.
BECAUSE I CAN AND BECAUSE I WANT TO!
I love guns! Yes. I said it. I LOVE GUNS! I love going to the range and shooting. I love the smell of fresh gun smoke, and the atmosphere of the Gun Club. I love the wonderful feeling of hitting the 100yd bowling pins at the Gun Club’s rifle section with the AR-15. I love aiming the Winchester 94 at the specified targets and hitting six for six. I also love shooting a SigP229, a Kimber 1911, an S&W .357 Magnum revolver, etc. in the pistol section. I enjoy shooting guns. The idea that being a gun-lover is somehow a bad quality is ridiculous. Guns are a fundamental part of American Tradition. I love them!
That is my straight-forward answer to all the gun-grabbers who, in broken-record fashion, regurgitate the same nonsense over and over again. I will also note that it is not the government’s duty to tell me what I ‘need.’ Through all of the anti-gun propaganda, twisted facts, and attempts to make organizations such as the NRA look bad, I still will continue to support the 2nd Amendment and the NRA as well.
Why? BECAUSE I CAN!
