    The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!"
    — Theodore Roosevelt

    "There's no such thing as a good gun. There's no such thing as a bad gun. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a very dangerous thing. A gun in the hands of a good person is no danger to anyone except the bad guys." - Charlton Heston, 15 Sept 1997, Fox News Channel

    "A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders." - Larry Elder, radio personality

    My all time favorite from the king hippy himself...

So it came to pass on the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul or Jonathan; but with Saul and Jonathan there was found [other lethal weapons]” - 1 (Samuel 13:19-22)

    You can get more of what you want with a kind word and a gun, than you can with just a kind word.

    "A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it." Shane

    And one I've seen around here as a sig line:

    "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest." — Mahatma Ghandi

    But do you trust the government with fully-automatic assault rifles? Unknown

    The unarmed man is not just defenseless, he is also contemptible.
    Machiavelli

    The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.
    James Earl Jones

    After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it.
    William Burroughs

    You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass. Japanese Admiral Yamamoto, 1941

    "25 States allow anyone to buy a gun, strap it on, and walk down the street with no permit of any kind: some say it's crazy. However, four out of five US murders are committed in the other half of the country: so who's crazy?"
    -- Andrew Ford

    "Without either the first or second amendment, we would have no liberty; the first allows us to find out what's happening, the second allows us to do something about it! The second will be taken away first, followed by the first and then the rest of our freedoms."
    - Andrew Ford

    "The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state-controlled police and military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military. The hired servants of our rulers. Only the government - and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws."
    -- Edward Abbey, The Right to Arms, Abbey's Road, 1979

    "When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."
    -- Thomas Jefferson

    "By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia', the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms', our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
    -- Senator John F. Kennedy, 1960

    "In America, freedom and justice have always come from the ballot box, the jury box, and when that fails, the cartridge box."
    -- Steve Symms, US Senator from Idaho, 1990

    "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."
    -- Dolores Ibarruri `La Pasionaria'

    An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject: Unknown

    If you are not prepared to use force to defend civilization, then be prepared to accept barbarism. Thomas Sowe

    If you are unwilling to defend even your own lives, then you are like mice trying to 'negotiate' with owls. You regard their ways as 'wrong', they regard you as dinner. John Farnam

    Being multilingual is an excellent survival skill in today's world; being fluent in another person's native tongue means you can quickly and clearly communicate with them. And violence is the first language of all predators.
    RyanM, (THR)

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to stand by and do nothing. Edmund Burke

    The definition of diplomacy is saying 'Nice doggie, nice doggie', until you can find a stick. Will Rodgers

    You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.
    Charles Austin Beard, historian

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    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, quoting Cesare Beccaria

    A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.
    Sigmund Freud, General Introduction to Psychoanalysis (1952)

    The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once. Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003

    People sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. George Orwell

    The 2nd amendment was never intended to allow private citizens to
    'keep and bear arms.’ If it had, there would have been wording such as
    'the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’
    Ken Konecki, July 27, 1992 ) (note: for any liberals reading this, its meant to be sarcastic…)

    Terrorists don't seem to be too afraid of stern language. But I do notice, that while the fear of death does not seem to deter these people, the fact of BEING dead does significantly decrease their operational effectiveness.
    Bill Whittle

    I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    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

    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived. Gen. George S. Patton

    No poor dumb ******* ever won a war by dying for his country.
    You win wars by making the other poor dumb ******* die for his."
    Gen. George S. Patton

    The most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I'm from the government and I'm here to help’. Ronald Reagan

    The unarmed man can only flee from evil. And evil is never overcome by fleeing from it. Col. Jeff Cooper

    Democracy is when 2 wolves and a lamb vote for what to put on the dinner table; Liberty is when the lamb is well armed : unknown

    The Second Amendment is in place in case the government ignores the others.
    Unknown

    30,000,000 legal firearm owners killed no one yesterday.
    Unknown


    If someone kills you with your own gun, they better have to beat you to death with it because at that point, it should be empty. Unknown

    Bumpersticker: Ted Kennedy's car killer more people than my gun.

    "One man with a gun can control 100 without one." – Lenin

    America was created and preserved for 200 years by armed free men. : unknown

    Those who beat their guns into plowshares will plow for those who don't.: unknown

    "Before a standing army can rule the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States." — Noah Webster, An Examination of The Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, Philadelphia, 1787

    "A government resting on a minority is an aristocracy, not a Republic, and could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace." James Madison

    "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 social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work. Wear a gun to someone else's house, you're saying, 'I'll defend this home as if it were my own.' When your guests see you carry a weapon, you're telling them, 'I'll defend you as if you were my own family.' And anyone who objects levels the deadliest insult possible: 'I don't trust you unless you're rendered harmless'!" - L. Neil Smith, The Probability Broach

    ."..and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one." — Jesus Christ, Luke 22:36 NKJV

    "It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." — Voltaire

    "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected peoples to carry arms have prepared their own fall." — Adolf Hitler, Edict of 18 March 1939

    "Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — Ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State." — Heinrich Himmler

    "All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party." — Mao Zedong, Problems of War and Strategy, Nov 6 1938 (published in Selected Works of Mao Zedong, 1965)
