I Don’t Love Guns. I Just LOVE What My Gun Protects…

I guess that headline isn’t 100 percent true, because I really do love guns. The point I’m trying to make here is that many people forget that the firearm is only a tool. It’s simply a means to an end. I carry a gun because it’s one of the most effective tools that I’m aware of for self-defense.

I carry a gun…

…because I’ve made the personal decision that the person who is 100 percent responsible for the safety of my loved ones is named Tim Schmidt.

I carry a gun…

…because I don’t think I’d be able to live with myself if I was ever in a situation where I couldn’t protect my wife and kids.

I carry a gun…

…because it is one of the many personal protection layers that I’ve created for myself.

I carry a gun…

…because while I expect and hope for good and perfect outcomes, I understand that evil will always exist in our world.

I carry a gun…

…because my daughter and my wife each believe that no matter what happens, her daddy and her husband will always be able to protect her.

I carry a gun…

…because I want to teach my kids that it will someday be their responsibility to protect their loved ones.

I carry a gun because I LOVE life.

I carry a gun because I am a responsibly armed citizen.
