An Arms Alphabet
by Nathan Barton 

A is for Armed: An armed man is a cit­i­zen. An unarmed man is a subject.
B is for Bear: The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. (What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?)
C is for Cop: A gun in the hand is bet­ter than a cop on the phone.
D is for Dead: Dead is what you will be if you leave your defense up to some­one else.
E is for Equal: God cre­at­ed men and women. Samuel Colt made them equal.
F is for Free: Free men do not ask per­mis­sion to bear arms.
G is for Gun: Gun con­trol is not about guns; it’s about control.
H is for Hand­gun: If Hand­guns cause mur­ders, then match­es cause arson.
I is for Idiots: Idiots choose not to under­stand the impor­tance of guns in self-defense.
J is for Jus­tice: The jus­tice sys­tem is usu­al­ly too late for an unarmed victim.
K is for Kill: You don’t shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
L is for Lib­er­als: Guns only have two ene­mies: rust and lib­er­als. (This use of lib­er­al is not one with which I agree, but I know what the author means in cur­rent polit­i­cal terms.)
M is for Muz­zle: A muz­zle should be the last thing a thug sees point­ed at his heart right before he dies.
N is for Nice: Isn’t it odd how peo­ple are usu­al­ly nice to an armed per­son. (An armed soci­ety is a polite society.)
O is for Out­law: When guns are out­lawed, only out­laws will have guns. (If guns are out­lawed, can we use box cutters?)
P is for Peace: Know guns, know peace and safe­ty. No guns, no peace nor safe­ty. “An armed soci­ety is a polite society.”
Q is for Quo­tid­i­an: Open car­ry ought to be quo­tid­i­an, everywhere.
R is for Rights: If you don’t know your rights you don’t have any. (When you remove the peo­ple’s right to bear arms, you cre­ate slaves.)
S is for Secu­ri­ty: Those who trade lib­er­ty for secu­ri­ty have neither.
T is for Tar­get: Choose your tar­get wise­ly and well. Make the first shot count.
U is for Undressed: In a free­dom- and peace-lov­ing soci­ety, some­one with­out a weapon is social­ly undressed.
V is for Vic­to­ry: When one per­son pre­vents a crime by using a gun well and effec­tive­ly, it is a vic­to­ry for all peace-lov­ing people.
W is for Women: Women with guns get dates, not rapes.
X is for expired: That’s what hap­pens to your rights if you don’t have arms to defend them.
Y is for Youth: Youths car­ry­ing guns respon­si­bly are the future of freedom.
Z is for Zilch: We have zilch faith in cops pro­tect­ing us, so we car­ry our own pro­tec­tion. (Zero fits bet­ter than zilch, does­n’t it?
