I picked this up from another group I frequent and thought it very pertinent and incisive:

http://www.catb.org/~esr/guns/gun-ethics.html

"The bearing of arms is the essential medium through which the individual
asserts both his social power and his participation in politics as a
responsible moral being...." (Historian J.G.A. Pocock, describing the
beliefs of the founders of the U.S.)

There is nothing like having your finger on the trigger of a gun to reveal
who you really are. Life or death in one twitch — ultimate decision, with
the ultimate price for carelessness or bad choices.

Too long to post in it's entirety so will just copy first paragraph and cut---

Speaking strictly for myself. Since I started carrying a gun I have become a much more sociable individual as well as much more tolerant to stupid and rude people. It has also made me more aware of my surroundings. I have found that people that I thought were friends were not. I have learned a great deal about myself and the general population as a whole. I learned to really study our constitution my rights and the law. For me carry as been a very positive thing. I have become friends with others who share my views, I seek others that have my mindset. Make no mistake we that carry are a brotherhood of men and women that have excepted freely an awesome responsibility.
