One of the phrases that I’ve often heard from people who are aware and who are armed is “I hope I never have to defend myself”. You would expect that violence would be decreasing as we “evolved” (so the Liberals like to say). What I’ve noticed is that violence isn’t decreasing, it’s increasing at an alarming rate. What’s even worse is that I hear media people and the Liberals justifying what they claim to hate!
It’s why I have advised several people to either buy a firearm or if they don’t want to do that, befriend someone who does own firearms. The statistical need to defend yourself is increasing as the Liberals get more violent, justify more murder, justify more assaults and generally turn a blind eye to the violence and bloodshed of innocent law abiding citizens.
There are many "budget" firearms available however, I would not purchase a firearm just because of price. This is not an order of french fries! This is a tool which may save your life or your family's lives! How much is your life worth? How much is your family's lives worth? The money you save will be of little solace as you pull that trigger and hear a click instead of a boom. In the mean time, criminals may be getting the upper hand on you, your loved one or a family pet. Saving a few measely bucks on a firearm which is now a fancy paperweight wasn't such a "good" deal now, huh?
The same could be said for ammunition. I've often heard good people say that they bought the cheapest ammunition available. Is it reliable? Never mind that it may be "cheap". I will ask again, what is your life worth? What is your family's lives worth? Saving a few measely dollars on ammunition will be of little solace as you stand over the casket of your loved one. What will you say to your daughter who was abused because you wanted to save a few dollars on ammunition? Hopefully, you get my point.
The violence isn't decreasing, it is increasing! It has been increasing for about the past eight years. Add to that violent "protests", terrorism and a whole host of assaults, criminal activity, murders, rapes, muggings and car jacking and the world is getting scary! Then of course there are the illegals that seem to victimize law abiding citizens with impunity. To add insult to injury, the Liberal media ignores the victimization of law abiding citizens and instead focuses on the criminals and their sad story.
Don't be surprised if in the act of defending yourself or your family, they make you out to be a "monster". It all goes with the territory. If heaven forbid you kill someone before or even after they harm you or your family, the Liberal media will tear you apart. They won't go after the criminal who was intending to victimize you, they will go after you. What a wonderful world we live in...
