“Armed” – Not “Dangerous”

I fully support our Second Amendment right to bear arms.

I own no less than 40 firearms, which include rifles, shotguns, muzzle-loading rifles, a few semiautomatic pistols, and a handful of bows.

Almost everything I own has been used to put meat in my freezer.

I am armed.

I will never use a firearm to take the life of another, unless that life is directly threatening me or someone else in my presence.

I will never open fire on innocent people in a post office.

I will never open fire on innocent people in a school, college, or university.

I will never open fire on innocent people in a movie theatre.

I will never open fire on innocent people in a parking lot.

I will never open fire on innocent people in a food store.

I will never open fire on innocent people, period.

I have been through countless instructional courses in firearm safety, handling, and firing techniques.

I have been trained/qualified by the U.S. Military on everything from pistols up through, and including, the Vulcan cannon.

I have been trained on weapons systems that the typical civilian and most LEOs will never come into contact with.

I have a great deal of respect for both human life and for the weapons that have been created to take them.

So, yes, I am armed, but I am not dangerous.

And I am not unique. 99% of gun owners are just like me – except for maybe the Vulcan, that is.
