Great quotes about fire-arms:

"Tyranny derives from the oligarchy's mistrust of the people; hence they deprive them of arms, ill-treat the lower class, and keep them from residing in the capital. These are common to oligarchy and tyranny."
Aristotle in Politics (J. Sinclair translation, pg. 218, 1962)

 "The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."
Blackstone's 1768 "Commentaries on the Laws of England"

"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

"Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, the overthrow of tyranny or private self-defense."  John Adams (1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President  A Defense of the Constitution of Government of the United States of America, 1788

"I ask sir, what is the militia?  It is the whole body of the people except for a few public officials.  To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them..."
George Mason  (1725-1792), drafted the Virginia Declaration of Rights, ally of James Madison and George Washington

"The great object is that every man be armed.  Everyone who is able may have a gun."
Patrick Henry 


"I am thus far a Quaker, that I would gladly argue with all the world to lay aside the use of arms and settle matters by negotiation, but unless the whole will, the matter ends, and I take up my musket and thank Heaven He has put it in my power."
Thomas Paine (1737-1809)Source: Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (M. Conway ed. 1894)

  1. Here's a fact you might have missed.

    The prime purpose of a gun is to kill.

    In the USA many many people are killed or maimed by guns, many of these are school children.

    Look at the stats and weep.

    To quote politicians of long gone era as authorities on why the people of this day and age should have the uncontrolled right to bear arms is crass, selfish and dare I say pretty stupid.
