    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. 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.

    4. America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America Is at the
    Mall.

    5. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. (so shoot
    first then call 911)

    6. 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 with, 'Because they don't
    make a 46.'

    7. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

    8. An 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
    brought my rifle.'

    9. Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use
    it.

    10. A 'soccer mom' once asked me if I had a gun in the house to which I replied
    I in fact did. She said, 'Well, I certa inly hope it isn't loaded!' To which I said,
    'Of course it's loaded.' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of someone evil
    coming into your house?' My reply was, 'No, not at all. I'm not afraid of the
    house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they're all
    loaded.'

    11. We had a nice old couple in Phoenix . Someone decided to break down their
    door one night. Like good citizens without a clue, they called 911. They were
    only dead about 20 minutes when the cops arrived. If they had a gun they would
    be alive and the bad guys would be dead. The killers were never caught.

    12. Last summer a killer chased a man into a convenience store and shot him.
    The n he killed the clerk because he was a witness. The first victim lived. Had
    the clerk had a weapon, the bad guy would be dead and both victims would be
    alive.

    13. At a business or a church, school or college, where guns are banned only the
    bad guys have guns and the do-gooders that prevent good people from
    defending themselves by carrying a weapon are not the victims often enough.

    14. And, why in hell should I defend someone that won't defend themselves. The
    cops will take care of the bodies when they get there.

    15. The second amendment is your right. Protect it or lose it.

    The guy who has only one gun knows how to use it? Actually most guys I know with only one gun often don't even know what caliber it is.

    #6 sounds like a variant on an older quote that goes like...

    "A reporter in the 1890s is interviewing a {cowboy|sheriff|bandit} and asks him why he carries a .45 Colt Peacemaker to which the subject replies Because Mr Colt doesn't make a .46."

    I remember one about someone seeing a Texas Ranger's cocked-and-locked 1911. The person asked the Ranger "do you know your gun is cocked?" Ranger answers "yup." Person goes on, "well, isn't that dangerous?" Ranger replies "well, I wouldn't carry the heavy sumbitch if it wasn't."

    You're statistically more likely to kill yourself or a loved one with a handgun than an armed criminal.

    something tells me that if you killed a loved one, more often than not you are actually acting as an armed criminal.

    I wrote that vaguely. I'm saying that the person who is most likely to kill you or your loved ones with a firearm is you, not Pooky.
    Not trolling, I'm all for an armed and educated citizenry.

    gotcha, I've heard that stats before, just something about the way you posted it sounded off.

    I agree with the education bit, a little more education and thinking would go a long way for some people.

    Makes sense, just like most children murdered are murdered by their own parents.
