A Gun In The House

I got this in email and even though it's not brand, spankin' new, it's still worth firing up my keyboard to reproduce here....

BTW in my opinion the worst the economy gets the more important it is to know how to defend yourself and your property from those that would take your life to get to your property. IF you could hand over your "stuff" without getting killed it would be silly to put up a defense, but we all know that's not likely to happen every single time. And no one loves the cops more than me, but unless you carry one with you every where you go you are pretty much on your own all the time.

A Gun In The House

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

The rules as they apply to most folks:

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man (or woman!!). If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy. (They aren't easily concealed either!)

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. (Unless you call HCSO's 713-221-6000 number and get sent to voicemail!)

5. A reporter did a human interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him "Why do you carry a .45?" The Ranger responded, "Because they don't make a .46."

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man (or woman!) with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have bought my rifle."

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!

But wait, there's more!

I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said "Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!"

To which I said, "Of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!"

She then asked, "Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your house?"

My replay was, "No, not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too."

To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! And I'm a firm believer that every man and WOMAN ought to know how to refuse to become a victim by educating themselves on the proper use of firearms, being aware of their surroundings at all times, and using their God given common sense to save themselves if at all possible. You owe it to your loved ones to save your own hide!
