“As an American, as a firearm owner (including multiple AR-15s), as ultimately as a human like everyone else in this world, I am absolutely sick at the actions of a man who acted out of pure evil yesterday morning in Orlando. I frequently get asked why I feel the need to carry a firearm or have "assault rifles” and my answer will always be the same. I value my life; and I value the lives of every innocent person around me. I recognize the possibility every single morning I put my phone and wallet in my pockets and strap a Glock to my belt of my chances of being in a life-altering fight. I have had to mentally come to terms that there is a possibility I might have to take a life, or lose mine fighting for someone else’s. I have nothing to prove; I’m not a cop, I’m not a hero, and I don’t want any recognition. I want to ensure and take responsibility that I will do everything in my power to ensure my safety and the safety of those around me. When the gunman entered that nightclub, it was too late for mental health, failed government background checks, or even legality of “assault weapons.” He lost sight of love and human compassion, and he was there with one purpose. He forever changed the lives of thousands of people that night.
You have every right to disagree with my opinions and stances. You have every right to decide whether you trust the government to protect you in an area they have deemed “gun free.” I won’t argue with you. I will however continue training, I will be as prepared as I possibly can because I will stand up and defend myself. And I am one of many who feel this way.
I don’t agree with every action of my country recently or throughout history. I don’t support the majority of the leadership or their decisions. However, I am proud to be an American, and that will never change.
Stay safe, train hard, carry everywhere, si pacem vis para bellum.“ From @jj_556_
