The Most Common Sense Explanation Against Gun “Carry Permits”

From Mr. Publius in response to Anti Gun March On Washington:

When I was 14, I asked the man who taught me more about shooting and self defense than anyone outside of the military, why he never carried his piece. He more or less imparted the following three concepts to me:

 

1) In a random confrontation with firearms, the man with the least to lose will likely be the first to pull the trigger.

 

2) Be man enough to take an ass-whupping rather than shoot a man to avoid that whupping.

 

3) The best defensive weapon available to anybody is the ability to spot trouble before trouble spots you. Acquire and qualify the target before you pick up the weapon, and you will probably never need to pick up the weapon.

 

Those concepts have always stayed with me. And to this day, I have never carried a piece in the civilian world. In my youth I ventured into some tight spots, and been in places I should have avoided… even stared into the business end of a Colt Python in the parking lot of a place called Whiskey Bill’s. I knew it was a Python because I examined it before I returned it, unloaded, to it’s owner. My choices were not always wise, but in all my years and less than noble youth, I never needed lethal force to resolve a situation. Some of it is dumb luck, but most of it is about not being dumb.

 

Just sayin….

  1. Reblogged this on Spirit In Action and commented:
    What a wonderful, common sense approach! This totally fits with my own experience. In a really harsh environment carrying a gun can also make you a target for others who are armed.

  2. I love this! Thank you so much for publishing it. I live in a neighborhood that for a while in the 90′s they wouldn’t send ambulances here without police escort, and I have had the same experience. As long as you have some sense, you are really in no danger, and even when something dangerous happens carrying a gun just ups the ante-and increases your own likelihood of being shot.

    The people who think guns are a public solution are so used to being the ones with guns while everyone else has none that they don’t factor in what things are like when LOTS of people are heavily armed.

    Beirut in the 70′s is my first thought, or the “wild wild west”.

    Then there are always people like some of my family members who get so annoyed when someone pulls a gun they reflexively take the gun and pitch it somewhere;-) (or like the author above who take it, unload and return it-so much more polite!)

    When people come to realize that guns are nothing but a tool, and not the BEST tool for most uses, they will be so much better off, imho.

    I plan to reblog this, but is it ok if I also forward it in an email to a discussion group?

  3. I really like #3. Also, you know, sometimes it just makes sense to stay way from certain places and situations. A friends moved to Oakland, CA, which is know for having a high crime rate and many shootings. He’s lived there quite awhile and says people always ponder his safety. He’s fine. He just stays away from the places and situations where crime and violence are likely to happen. Of course, there is the scenario where it just finds you.

    Thank you, Mr. Jueseppi! :-)
    Happy Sunday evening.

    • Happy to see you Ms. Jamie…please call me JB.

      You are correct, avoiding situations and places where danger is a possibility just makes good common sense to me.

      I am hoping you are enjoying a good fun Sunday evening,..I’m switching back & forth watching the NFL Pro Bowl & The SAG Awards. 8O :lol: ;-)

  4. I think you nailed it. Guns are huge business and getting bigger every day. Our politicians, while under corporate control, will never vote anti-business regardless of how many school shootings and senseless violent gun homicides there are….
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes, it’s a very sad time in America’s history. Lies and misinformation used to continue the billions of dollars into corporate gun manufacturers pockets, and the pockets of our elected officials.

  5. It is very painful for me to talk about GUNS … and .. I just can’t comprehend as well … why our Politicians … are lacking the will and the willfulness to pass the right legislation due to greed and selfishness … As … we all know …The time is now to control guns … Especially when President Obama has over 80% support of the American People to make a change for the best …

    • The reason our elected politicians are lacking the will and willfulness to pass the right legislation is because of greed and selfishness. Guns are big business, and profits are upwards of $20 billion a year. Some of that profit is used as kick backs into the pockets of the very politicians we vote into office to protect us from dangers caused by guns.

      Until it becomes illegal to receive campaign cash from corporations and lobbyist…crooked evil politicians will continue to take cash to obstruct gun reform laws.
