    I carry because I woke up one day and foresaw that the day will come when our left leaning politicians will sever that thin rope that connects the Founders of this country to me. So I do everything in my power to exercise that right. I immediately got my CWP in our SHALL issue state. My wife did the same. We bought every type of gun especially those that are the most hated by the left. We go to the range every week. We shoot trap. I became an NRA Life member and every bullet I fire and every shotshell that goes off makes that thin line get stronger and stronger. Every time I go to the gun store and see the crowds, every time I go to the big stores and see the ammo shelves bare, I rejoice.

    ACTUAL AD ON CRAIGSLIST





    To: The Guy Who Mugged Me in Downtown, Savannah , GA

    I was the white guy with the black Burrberry jacket that you
    demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and
    my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and
    earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to
    apologize.

    I didn't expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after
    you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a
    reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my
    girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for
    Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it
    that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating
    weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?

    I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to
    wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in
    your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up
    leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have
    you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us
    again. I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma" as
    you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your
    situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your
    shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's,
    along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet
    itself in a dumpster.

    I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be
    on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel
    recently shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a
    little over a day now, so I don't know what's going on with that.
    I hope t! hey haven't permanently cut off your service. I was about
    to make some threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it.
    Oh well.

    So, about your pants; I know that I was a little rough on you when
    you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I'd like to make it
    up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like
    to help you out. I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you
    used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead
    making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll
    reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be
    so lucky. If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch
    and laundry.

    Peace! - Alex

    I never put a guy (or gal) in jail/prison who was happy about going. Also, just too many reasons not to carry a gun.
