People who object to weapons are begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men are always ‘right’. Guns ended that, and social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work. No state can control those who have the machinery – and the will – to resist, no mob can take their liberty and property.

And no 220-pound thug can threaten the well-being or dignity of a 110-pound woman who has two pounds of iron to even things out. […]

[…] Whenever personal arms fall out of fashion, society becomes something not worth defending. Individuals start to rot away, too, disdaining to lift a finger in their own defense because it’s ‘beneath them’. They’re no longer fit to live and simply proving they know it! Wear a gun to someone’s house, you’re saying ‘I”ll defend this home as if it were my own’. When your guests see you carry a weapon, you’re saying ‘I’ll defend you as if you were my own family.’

Anyone who objects levels the deadliest insult possible: ‘I won’t trust you until you render yourself harmless.’
