Why Would You Want To Own a Gun?

By September 11, 2012

Follow me on:

Way back when I decided to get my carry permit, some well-meaning friends and family wanted to know why. They weren't just asking why I wanted to carry but they wanted to know why I would want to own a gun at all. Of course, I had already owned guns for years prior to that, but it didn't seem to bother anyone until I was ready to start carrying.

In any case, there are a lot of reasons why someone might want to own a gun. For me, it was a combination of things. It allowed me to own a piece of history and it provided me with a mode of personal protection. Plus, shooting is just plain fun.

If you're a gun owner, I'd love to hear what your reasons are. If you are not a gun owner yet but are considering it, I'd like to hear your thoughts, as well. Just vote in the poll or leave me a comment below.
