Stick to your Guns

Image result for stick to your guns

Ever wonder where the phrase, “stick to your guns” comes from? It means to stand up for your beliefs no matter what, but can also mean to hold onto your convictions whether others agree with them or not. The origins of the phrase, however, was a command given to sailors that manned guns on military boats, to stay at their posts even when the boat was under attack.

Makes sense to me.
