Look out baby, ’cause here I come.
And I’m bringing you a shot that’s true.
So get ready, so get ready.
I’m gonna try to make you fear me too.
So get ready, so get ready ’cause here I come.
(Lyrics from the Song, Get Ready by the Temptations)
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
