The WhyICarry movement is a movement concerning the 2A community. I got the opportunity to join the movement on the weekend of March 17, 2018.
Most movements are dedicated to showing off their guns and styles. Nonetheless, #WhyICarry is there for people to share their reasons as to why they need guns. It is an open forum where you get to tell others why you carry your gun with you.
The hashtag attracted quite some followers. The most common reasons for carrying guns were for self-protection and for protecting their loved ones.
Some people shared their experiences wherein they were assaulted or came across a life-threatening situation but had no control over the circumstances. Others shared of how they felt their freedom and safety were at stake and decided to carry guns to regain their self-reliance.
Ladies who carry guns around aren't dangerous people. They are law abiding citizens like anyone else—it’s just that they choose to take charge of their life.
Personally, my reason why I carry is self-reliance. However, we all have our reasons; therefore, I am not posting this to create disparities. While we are prepared to carry guns around, we are not wishing to attract the negative cases. The bottom line is that we just want to be always prepared whenever anything evil comes our way.
