"Why I Chose a Gun"

Postby Lobo » Sun Feb 12, 2012 4:39 pm

I realize that this is a forum for airsoft, a recreational activity. However, I have noticed that this group overlaps much with the community of armed servicemen and responsible gun owners. This video might interest you.

The chief of defense of Holland gives his argument for the appropriate, just use of weapons in the twenty-first century. Personally, I am very much against war. I consider it to be a barbaric means of keeping order. However, unlike some, I believe that it is a good thing to have a strong stranding military as a final guard when all negotiation fails, when the "shit hits the fan". Regardless of what ideals we may hold, let us prepare for the worse.

It is a long video, but worth watching, especially if you are one of the misunderstood and sometimes even slandered gun owners and soldiers.
