Why I Carry a Gun

I don’t carry a gun to kill people.     I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people. ….I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.   I  carry a gun because there are real threats in the world to freedom, life, and liberty.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. …I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate my country.  I carry a gun because I understand and have experienced the  limitations and abuses of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. …I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life  hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.   I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere, tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. …I carry a gun because, when I die and go to Heaven, it will be with the knowledge that I was a “Sheepdog”,  who helped protect innocent lives.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.  I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. …I carry a gun because, unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it…. I carry a gun because I love life, and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Crime, Killing, Government

Crime, Killing, Government

Our politicians are proud of their “actions”

They kick the can down the road to avoid issues

They grapple over sand pebbles while boulders are thundering down

In short, they are into minutiae.


In their struggles to make America safer they are tackling , perhaps,

the least urgent item from a long list… Banning Guns.

They need to learn about the Pareto Principle…. You know 80%  results from 20% of the problems.

They need to study this chart. Then re-think their priorities.

Does this suggest some different actions?

To SAVE Lives they need to start crushing boulders and stop sifting sand pebbles

through their legislative toys.

Please share this widely; especially with your "politicians

An Interview with Author Charly Gullett

Excerpts from the interview with my husband on his new book BEIRUT won't see this on Hannity tonight. AJ

COVERT: The provisioning of cartels with weapons from the US has been informally characterized as an act of war against Mexico; do you agree?

GULLETT: No, I don't think it rises to that. But the ATF wasn't exactly acting in the role of peace-giver either. It is easy to see why some Mexican officials are calling this a violation of sovereignty and demanding that the individuals in the ATF/DEA/FBI, etc. responsible for the deaths of several Mexican officials, more than 150 police and probably hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens as a result of Operation Fast and Furious be turned over to the Government of Mexico for trial. Good luck on that. US Attorney General Eric Holder won't even give up documents to our own Congress.

COVERT: In your book (BEIRUT ARIZONA), you charge that an unholy alliance among renegade agents of our government, Mexican drug cartels and Islamic Jihadists in the Middle East exists and is aiding Mexican drug cartels. Why do you believe that the drug cartels would aid terrorists in physical attacks within the border of the United States, attacking their own customers?

GULLETT: I don't think this is any more complicated than the old adage "...the enemy of my enemy is my friend". In the end, I think the perception by American liberals of Mexican drug cartels as businessmen victimized by antiquated American drug laws, and the view that Islam is peaceful religion is entirely erroneous and we suffer the consequences of this psychological denial.

These are two competing criminal gangs composed of thugs; one secular, the other mystical but both are criminal organizations and if successful will eventually compete over the same turf. In the mean time, they work together in order to position themselves for this final reckoning. Like Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy during WWII, each believes themselves powerful enough to withstand the partnership.

COVERT: If your thesis is true regarding Hezbollah, do you think this nexus between cartels and Hezbollah, the arms trafficking are also an act of war against Mexico?

GULLETT: Absolutely. Hezbollah and the Mexican drug cartels are not just running a few guns or selling a few bags of dope to aging American hippies; these are enormous international criminal syndicates who are violating not only international drug and weapons trafficking laws but in the case of Islam are clearly intending on taking over the world and absorbing it into the new world caliphate so that "...Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions..."
