    Taken from a post by usmcdoc14 on PBB:

    I the gun owner apologize
    for why I feel the need to own a gun.

    I am sorry for being afraid.
    I am afraid of people who want to do harm to those I love for no logical reason. I am afraid that I do not have the ability to stop an armed man from harming them. They will be hurt or raped or killed. A gun gives me an equal or advantage, a gun makes them safe at night.

    I am sorry for being scared.
    I am scared I can not run from all fights that I can not win. I am scared that I will be cornered and out numbered. I try to avoid those situations but those situations may not always avoid me. I am scared of the man in the crowd with the gun randomly shooting. I have been shot by him once before and only by luck was I not more seriously injured. The gun is my security blanket, it is my cape.

    I am sorry for being greedy.
    I enjoy all that I own. I have built my empire from nothing and no one will ever take it away from me again. Not a piece, not in whole. No one shall enter my castle to rob me, no one shall violate the sanctity of my temple.
    My gun is on the parapet of this fortress that none shall destroy.

    I am sorry for my lust.
    I find my guns an addiction of sorts. Mechanical marvels that are beautiful in their form. I desire to own one of every variety of sensual form that fits in my hands. I lovingly clean and caress the supple lines. Happiness is a warm gun.

    I am sorry for being stern.
    I follow the words of our rights as how they are written, not how they are interpreted to be. The national Guard is not "a militia" and the right to bear arms is not only for that militia to have. You would be angry if I tried to take away your right to free speech but try to take away my right to protect yours.
    I can not give up.

    I am sorry for being a killer.
    I kill animals, I kill paper, I kill targets, and if I have to I will kill a person. I have been a killer for most of my life. nothing is going to change here, I hone my skills for one day when they will be needed. I can no more practice my killing without a gun than a flutist without a flute. But I have never seen anyone kill something with a flute. Maybe you just have to throw it hard enough.

    I am sorry for being skeptical.
    Police will not always protect me. The government will not always be for the people. The politicians will never be truthful. The criminals will never reform.
    My gun assures that these things can indeed change.
