WHY I CHOSE THE GUN
When I look around, I see people who want to make a contribution to society,
I see people who want to make a better world,by doing ground breaking scientific work ,by creating impressive artworks,by writing articles etc.and all have chosen their own instruments to fulfil this mission of creating a better world.some chose microscope,some chose painting,others chose the pen.but I made a different choice,I did not chose to take up the pen,brush or camera,I chose the gun,it may feel uneasy and scary,but as a matter of fact if you have never been close to a gun it means your nation is not at war.but in many nations people are confronted with guns and are oppressed by warlords,terrorists and criminals.weapons such as a gun can do a lot of harm. but why am I supporting it?
Whenever a nation is invaded by an enemy when all diplomacy fails,brute force is the last resort. When soldiers who left safety of their own house and risked their lives to liberate a free country and people they didn’t even know.it was then I decided that I would chose the gun,out of respect to those who came to liberate a nation,from the awareness that sometimes only the gun can stand between good and evil and that is why I took up the gun.not to shoot,not to hurt,not to destroy but to stop those who would do evil,to defend democratic values,to stand up for the freedom that we have,to express ideas of how we can make the world a better place.
Gun is not an instrument to boast of but an instrument of peace and stability.it may sound aggressive, but guns are the only reason wars between devoloped countries are no longer common,which shows we have attained peace.
But why has violence reduced,according to steven pinser,if a nation has monopoly of violence well under control has peace,it removes arms race between hostile groups.withholding or controlling violence becomes more profitable then starting a war.non-violence increases trade which further ehances exchange of knowledge and mutual understanding which makes people no longer create violence.
It is the gun which has reduced factors of war giving an idea of choosing a gun to make the world a better place.
