- Breda Fallacy
"Declining violent crime is the death-knell for gun control, and its supporters know it. Worse, the authoritarians in government know it, too. Add to that the spreading public realization that gun control doesn't make society safer, and another nail is hammered into the coffin."

- When they came for the Fourth Amendment, I said nothing - for I had nothing to hide.
- When they came for the Second Amendment, I said nothing - for I did not own a gun.
- When they came for the Fifth and Sixth amendments, I said nothing - for I had committed no crimes.
- When they came for the first Amendment - I could say nothing.
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
