My favorite gun quotes...Submitted by John C on Sat, 12/29/2012 - 11:40
Some gun quote/statements etc I like...
Here's a funny post from the comments section of a recent 2nd amendment article...
"What, you want my guns? Sure!! No problem!! Wait right here and I’ll get them for you. Kids, go get in the old cast iron bath tub in your bathroom for a second or two, daddy has some business to attend to" LOL...too funny.
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”
“The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” -Thomas Jefferson
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable ...the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good”
"Look here (http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/deathgc.htm) and see how in the last century about 100 million people were first disarmed by their governments, and then murdered en masse by that same government. And it all starts with ‘registration’ of weapons, then confiscation, then killing those who had them"...
another good comments post from a recent gun rights article.
