    Because I Have No Choice.

    I'm not exactly sure

    why I do, but I have them and know how, and when, to use them. My Lee-Enfield SMLE lets me reach out and touch someone if I have to and my Derringer fits snuggly in any pocket. I have others, but those are my favorites.

    Not Much To Say

    I have owned guns since I was little, used them for protection and to feed us.  Don't see how congress thinks they can vote it away from us, it is protected by the constitution, while the second amendment, it guarantees the first.
