Arm Yourselves.

You have to imagine me with two Ruger LCP's. Like this:

Dad and I drove out to Midwest Gun Exchange yesterday looking for the new Ruger LCP .380, which unfortunately was completely sold out at both locations. We're going shooting this weekend, so I'll get some training with his Glock and Walther, but we're pretty certain we're going to have to order a couple LCP's in soon. It sizes in at 5.16", and holds 6 in the magazine plus one in the chamber. A deadly weapon, just a little bigger than an iPod.

All this started for two reasons:

1) As an American citizen, I have the right to bear arms by the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America (while it is still honored). This country was founded with the idea that man was endowed by his creator with certain rights. In the event of a future socialist takeover and infringement of our civil liberties as a free people, I've decided to exercise this right while it is still inherent.
2) I must protect my family and my home with lethal force; otherwise, I completely compromise the lives I have vowed to protect. No one will ever convince me that I am safe with a police force working through the night, or an alarm system to scare off intruders. In the event of a break-in, I am completely helpless in my own home against the attacker that could take the lives of those I love, and mine. No one should ever be willing to compromise the lives of their family - not to any man, woman or government. We must protect ourselves.

The world is not a safe place, and to think that it is only provides a false sense of security until that time comes when you're faced with a potentially dangerous situation. That time may or may not come to each of us, but I'll be ready if it does.
