“When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone.
The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded.
I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.
It doesn’t limit those who would interact with me through reason, only those who would do so by force.
It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.”
