    Red face "GOOD" one liners to respond with...

    OK... so what are some good "ONE LINERS" to respond with when someone says... why do you carry a gun? (snark-snark)

    Im not looking for the LONG DRAWN OUT legal/political type answers.... Just a good one to tell my close friends to "shut em up" sort of speak, in a "not-so-smart-a$$" kinda way... but in a "thought provoking" way.

    I just want a few GOOD answers to say back with out going into a long story or debate. Know what I mean?

    So whats your "standard" response to that... just curious.

    Thanks for the help.

    Because I've probably put close to a hundred murder victims into body bags and taken them to the morgue and you haven't

    Because seeing a 70 year old woman with her head bashed in with a hammer and clothes ripped off made me want to puke

    Because I'd rather live than be in the receiving end of what I've seen

    Because I still think I can contribute to society... don't you?

    Because I have an obligation to provide for my family

    (some of those may not work for people in other occupations)

    "Because a policeman is too heavy"


    From the Cornered Cat
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Because I can.

    Because it is my constitutional right.

    None of your business.

    To protect myself.

    I agree with Bark'n. They should all ride along for a few days.

    Because the police have no obligation to protect me...I do.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Some are obviously tongue-in-cheek.

    Attack me and find out.

    God made all men equal. Sam Colt makes me MORE equal.

    Because Chuck Norris can't be around all the time.

    "I am become Death - the Destroyer of worlds"

    Because when the smoke clears, I want to be the one still standing.

    Because I have a small penis.

    Because I'm gay and like something hard in my pocket to fondle.

    If you have to ask, you don't need to know.

    Because a nuclear device is too hard to conceal.

    Because my tank is in the shop.

    Because my trained attack tiger is at the vet's.

    To protect the sheeple like you.

    Actually, my REAL answer is most often: For self defense. End of discussion.

    My wife is a psychatrist who works with violent people and drug seekers, what do you think?

    Do you want to pay more taxes for police, or let me pay for a permit and do the job myself?!

    A Law Enforcement Officer is too heavy and expensive to carry, a gun is just right!

    If Guns kill people then all of mine are defective!
    My idea of gun control is using BOTH hands!
