    Why do you need a gun?

    What is your favorite 'one liners' when someone asks you this question?
    I've heard
    -When seconds matters, the police are only minutes away
    -I refuse to be buried before my parents
    -I have a family waiting at home... I am not going to make them wait forever

    Which ones have you heard/created that completely changed your world?

    I am having trouble getting the 'robbery' schedule from the local PD...

    Until I get one, I choose to carry 24/7...

    I carry because I refuse to be a victim.

    I carry because I can't throw a rock 1200fps.

    Why do you have automobile insurance?
    Why do you have a smoke alarm?

    HAHA, I like that one!

    I carry because no one else really gives a crap about my safety besides myself.

    "Why do you need a gun?"

    Some possible replies:
    - I don't understand the question...
    - A gun? Actually I need at least 4 or 5.
    - I've decided that for the rest of my life I will do the opposite of what Nancy Pelosi et al want me to do.
    - Because being a helpless sheep is un-American.
    - Because a real man doesn't ask for permission from some emotionally-retarded busybody hoplophobe.
    - Because a real man is prepared before danger presents itself.
    - An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
    - Because 911 is government sponsored "Dial-a-Prayer."
    - Because criminals and politicians are the ones who should live in fear, not law-abiding productive citizens.
