M1911 The Great Equalizer: A Nonpartisan Story of Equality

There are many things in this world that we call the “great equalizer.” Disease, famine, education; but there is one that is more significant than the rest. Those are firearms. When you walk into a fight with someone who is 300 pounds, jacked, and looks like he just came from a strongman competition, how would you like to go at him? 

Would you trust the task to your bare hands? Perhaps if you’re of similar stature but I can tell you, I wouldn’t be standing by your side given the situation. 

The M1911 is considered the great equalizer for a variety of reasons but none any different than any other firearm you can purchase on the market. With government policy becoming more and more intrusive, there has never been a more important time to own your own piece of personal defense. 

Put yourself in the shoes of a criminal for a second. A world with no guns sounds like supermarket sweep doesn’t it? Any criminal could devise a plan smart enough to rob 90% of people on the block. Without a weapon or a solid means of defending yourself, what are you going to do? Call the police? By the time they get there with all the budget cuts and taxpayer money spent on re-educating them, what use is it? 

In gun-free zones violent and potentially deadly invaders are capable of doing whatever they want. You likely worry about your family members now but how are you going to feel when potentially their only means of equal self defense is removed? 

A simple pistol and a ready hand could make a world of difference when your world is about to take a dramatically different shape. 

Why do we see it this way? Why do we even need guns? You see it in the news and read it in the papers. People are always asking that question. Why do we need guns? 

Because we need a form of equality when all hell breaks loose. When your 16 year old daughter is alone in the middle of the night because you and your wife are out for dinner, who is protecting her from a home invasion? Who is protecting her from a peeping Tom who has been spying on her for weeks waiting for you to leave? What’s going to keep her safe now? In a matter of minutes, your whole life could come crashing down around you because someone, somewhere told you that guns were bad and you shouldn’t be allowed to own one.

That never stops the criminal, does it? Who it stops is the good hard working citizens who abide by the law even when they disagree with it. Unfortunately, they’re also sometimes the dopes who end up drawing a short stick in the game of life. 

When all else fails and you have nowhere to turn, the great equalizer will level the playing field. It doesn’t matter if you’re a 6’6” 300 pounds or 5’1” 70 pounds. If you know how to use it, you are now equal with whatever walks up and threatens your life. 

Anyone who feels like that right should be taken away from you should take a close look at themselves and analyze their process of determination. When it all boils down, “might makes right” is where we’re headed and it’s a scary place. We all need to realize that no one is looking out for our safety and the safety of our family. It’s up to you to make your move.
