Not sure where he got it from but I like it.

I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face...and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser, yet you are safer for having me next to you. I won't shoot you. My gun won't pull it's own trigger. It is securely holstered with the trigger covered. It can't just go off. However, rest assured that if a lunatic walks into the grocery store and pulls out a rifle, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family. I may get shot before I can pull the trigger...but, I won't die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my child's life. No, if I die it will be in a pile of spent shell casings. I won't be that victim. I choose not to be. As for you, I don't ask you to carry a gun. If you are not comfortable, then please don't. But I would like to keep my right to choose to not be a helpless victim. There is evil in the world and if evil has a gun, I want one too...
Be smart don't blame the guns, blame the people using them.
Copy and paste if you believe this too....

Lately I've been seeing a lot more people open carrying. Maybe because of the warm weather. Personally, I don't trust anybody to take down a bad guy and mitigate a situation. More likely that shooting will escalate as everybody just starts shooting. Upon the first shot, I'm not looking to be apart of a Western movie, and am heading for the exit. All you Charles Bronson/Dirty Harry types can settle it amongst yourselves.
