This was one of the protesters screaming at the NRA in Texas.

The thing is, he’s right. So why should I give up my guns? Does that make me stronger?
I know my limitations.
I have a bad back and bad knees. I don’t want to get into fist fight. I’ll get my ass kicked.
There is an old cowboy quote that perfectly sums up why I carry: “God created all men, Sam Colt made them equal.”
Take this incident from NYC:
A group of men attack a man in a New York subway. The victim looks to be Asian. Asking for the public’s help in identifying the attackers and having them arrested. One man is holding the defenseless man as others punch him. New York subways are not safe. Video sent by follower. pic.twitter.com/pEsKFCrznY

This Asian man is seemingly the victim of a hate crime at the hands of two savages who both have several inches on him.
One holds him while the other beats him.
Clearly the Asian man is weaker than his attackers.
One of Sam Colt’s inventions, or one of its descendents, would have made him equal to two bigger, stronger, taller men intent on harming him.
It’s just too bad that in NYC the weak are denied the right to carry and are easily preyed on by stronger thugs.
