Why I Like Guns

Why do I like guns?

  • They are simple mechanical devices and among the few durable items that can be as functional 100 years later as the day they were made.
  • They are powerful.  It’s an explosion you can hold in your hands.
  • They are a tool that enables me to defend the lives of my loved ones and my own.  It’s a seat belt for life!
  • They represent independence and self-reliance.
  • They are functional art.  Some firearms are beautiful to behold.
  • They go BANG!  They are loud.  Did I mention it’s an explosion you can hold in your hands?  What guy doesn’t like blowing shit up? 🙂
  • Science, bitches!  They are an effective and practical demonstration of Applied Physics.  Long distance precision shooting requires a solid grasp of physics and the implementation of math.

  • They are simply fun!
  • It’s a family-oriented activity.  Really.  It is!

  • It’s an exercise in eye-hand coordination.  Dentists tend to be good shooters.
  • Stress reduction.  It’s a Zen-like experience when focusing and hitting target.  You become aware of (and have to control) your breathing, your state of mind, and your body.  It’s meditative.
  • It is quintessentially American.  ‘Murica!
  • Though I’m not a hunter, guns can put food on the table.
  • It is an enumerated Right in the Constitution and the very foundation of how our country was created.  The United States of America exists BECAUSE of private gun ownership.  Owning a firearm is owning a piece of American history.
  • It’s fun to share the experience with newbies.
  • A firearm is an equalizer regardless of age, physical size or prowess, gender, social status, or political power.
  • It is a symbolic, practical, and very effective bulwark against tyranny.

    Where are all the comments?

    Perhaps there are few comments because your list was so comprehensive! I couldn’t think of any to add. Interesting that someone would be so dumb to unfollow you over a “gun issue”… it’s not like you try to hide your belief in all things Second amendment. In general, Americans are thin skinned and bruise easily. I don’t believe we could do what the Greatest Generation did.
