Why is it...

Why is it, that some people don't seem to understand that carrying a concealed pistol (legally that is) is not just a right, but also an obligation? As a Citizen of this great country, it is a right that was guaranteed to us in the Constitution. It is not given to us by the Constitution.

The right to keep and bear arms is what some call a "God given right." Well, if not not a religious person, how about we call it a Natural right. We all, every single one of us have a natural right of self defense. To help excersize that right, we need the proper tools. Before the advent of firearms, the proper tools were swords, bows, or whatever other weapons it might take to adequately defend our lives and those of our family.

Some time in the future, I would not be surprised if the proper tool is a laser weapon, or some other futuristic device. But for now, it is firearms.

To take away my gun, would be like taking the jack out of my car. Or the fire extinguisher out of my house. Who ever does such a thing is a criminal, and should be punished.

And that's all I have to say for now on that subject.
