Question: Why do Americans own guns?
The simple answer; “because we can.”
The U.S. Constitution was fully ratified in 1789, thus allowing every U.S. citizen the right to keep and bear arms as scribed in the Second Amendment.
The quintessential reason why Americans own guns.
Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to the following “Gun History,” from history around the world.
God-fearing, law-abiding, country loving people don’t carry a gun to kill people; they carry guns to keep from being killed.
We carry guns because the World isn’t always a safe place where decent God-fearing, country loving men and women can raise a family in peace and prosper.
Americans don’t own guns and sponsor the greatest military on the planet because we’re paranoid; ..we “own” guns and sponsor the greatest military on the planet because there are clear and present dangers in the World.
Decent God-fearing American men and women don’t carry guns because we’re evil, we carry guns to detour and defeat evil.
The American people don’t own guns because we fear the government, the American people own guns to support the government because we understand the limitations of our policing agencies and our government.
I don’t own a gun because I’m afraid, I own a gun because it’s one of the inalienable rights guaranteed me by the U.S. Constitution and I enjoy hunting and sport shooting.
Our government and police protection are wonderful entities, unfortunately our government and our police officers are not always readily available when they are needed.
A circumstance that our founding fathers fully understood as they penned the Second Amendment…
Reality from the past…

America is the only nation remaining on the planet where a citizen can keep and bear arms to defend themselves, their families and the nation.
..and you won’t learn of this information on any U.S. evening news, or hear any politicians disseminating these facts.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and yes, national gun-control laws, unfortunately unfavorably affect only law-abiding citizens.
With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without guns, we are ‘subjects’.
During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti- gun control message to all of your friends.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
I’m a firm believer in and active supporter of America’s 2nd Amendment! If you’re an American that believes as I do, that America is the greatest nation on the planet.
Then support America and our freedoms as intended by our founding fathers, don’t fall in with an “ideology” that wants to take away you’re freedoms.
Americans with guns founded this nation and Americans with guns have defended it for nearly 340 years.
Accordingly, if you’re an American citizen that enjoys his or her constitutional freedoms, please support the ideology that built this nation, …
..not an ideology that wants to destroy it.
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back when I can
