5 Things Every Responsible Gun Owner Ought To Know

This article is written to offer you some information based on my many years of personal experience representing people charged with gun-related crimes.

As I often say at the countless legal seminars I have presented at, “Don’t be an idiot with a gun.” I urge you to be a responsible gun owner and think carefully before you act.

I Am A Peaceful AR-15 “Assault Rifle” Owner

I am an American. As such, none of my rights depend on a showing of need. I am a free man who has the right to define and pursue my happiness in any peaceful way I see fit. The government does not grant me rights. I was born free. The legitimate role of government is to act as my agent to protect my rights; which exist independent of government. Americans do not beg the government for rights nor are they required to demonstrate a “need” for rights.

I suspect when most people pride themselves on loving freedom, they have in mind wimpy concepts like the rights of others to decide for themselves where to go on vacation or what model of automobile to buy. This wimpy concept of freedom doesn’t generate much controversy because most people personally agree with whatever decision another person makes in these areas.

Are You A Thug?

Some people are thugs. As a practicing criminal defense attorney, I sometimes get to meet and talk with thugs. Most of the thugs I represent know they are thugs, and some of them are even proud to be thugs. Most people don’t think of themselves as “thugs.” This is because most thugs don’t realize they are thugs. As with most things, the first step to change is an acknowledgment of the facts. I encourage you to honestly consider whether you are truly a thug.
