I Love My Guns
by Susan Callaway

*** begin quote ***

To start with, about 30 years ago I was attacked and would likely have died if I had not been armed.

At that point the man started to walk toward me, in a few words telling me just how he would hurt me. I raised the shotgun, but he just sneered and said confidently, “you won’t shoot me” and kept coming.

He was still too close to my car, so I aimed the .410 shotgun just over his head and pulled the trigger.

I saw the shocked look, just before I saw the blood on his face and chest where the tiny #6 birdshot had hit him. He turned and ran away, destroying a low ornamental fence in the process, but never even slowing to untangle it from his legs. 

How would the world be better and more peaceful if I had been raped and murdered instead, simply because I had no gun?

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

I think this summarizes the argument quite nicely. As someone said: “God made man and woman; Sam Colt made them equal.”

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.” — Robert A. Heinlein
