Quotes of the Week

"I am not going to be someone else's meat." 


"Gun Control! You don't want to protect the world from me. You want to make sure I can't protect the world from you!"

John Bradley

The Constitution shall never be construed … to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. 

– Samuel Adams 

A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand. 

– Lucius Annaeus Seneca, c. 4BC - 65AD. 

Armed people are free. No state can control those who have the machinery and the will to resist, no mob can take their liberty and property. And no 220-pound thug can threaten the well-being or dignity of a 110-pound woman who has two pounds of iron to even things out … People who object to weapons aren't abolishing violence, they're begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically right. Guns ended that, and a social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work. 

– L. Neil Smith (from The Probability Broach) 

The police can't stop an intruder, mugger, or stalker from hurting you. They can pursue him only after he has hurt or killed you. Protecting yourself from harm is your responsibility, and you are far less likely to be hurt in a neighborhood of gun owners than in one of disarmed citizens – even if you don't own a gun yourself. 

– Harry Browne
