This one needed to be re-printed...... So I did.
We hear it every day. Tax and spend liberals ask "Why do you really need to earn over a million dollars a year." Eco-nazis ask us "Why do you really need that SUV or pickup truck." Anti-gun people ask us "Why do you really need a ______________(fill in the blank with the style of firearm that is the flavor of the week to oppose)" Mayor Bloomberg tells New Yorkers "Why do you need a soda larger than 16oz?" And to be honest, ALL these questions deserve one, and only one, answer.
"It's none of your fucking business why I want it."
I am not under any obligation to justify my choices in life to anyone, and neither are you. If you want to eat a tofu burger, I'll never ream you out for it. Want to cram yourself into a Smart-4 Two car? Go for it. I don't mind picking them out of the grill of my F150. (That's a joke, lighten up already!!) And it's none of YOUR business why I want a Colt 1911A1, a Springfield Armory M1A, or a Thompson. But why, I hear you ask, should we never answer the question? It's simple. And I said so, yesterday.
There is no need to justify what weapons you own. Any more than there is any reason to justify what type of computer you own, what type of book you read, what type of booze you drink, or what the sex is or number of partners you choose to sleep with. By attempting to present disarmers such as yourself with "legitimate reasons" for owning ANY TYPE of weapon, I would be buying in to your argument that there needs to be a reason to own it in the first place. And I do not.
So, the next time some left-wing loon demands to know why you want to own and carry a handgun, or some right-wing religious nutcase asks you why you choose to smoke pot, you tell them "It's none of your fucking business why I want it." Or do it, or whatever. Because the moment you try to "justify it" or "Give a logical reason why you......" you have bought into their logic. You grant that you need a reason to excercise your rights. So, unless you actually believe you NEED a reason to excercise your rights, don't give'em one. I don't. Not anymore.
