Gun control laws increase the power of government and the criminal element over the average citizen and serve no other purpose.
Robert E. Lee
A goverment that fears arms in the hands of it people should also fear ROPE!
Nathan Bedford Forrest about 1845
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 prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.
Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist 1764.
I diagree with Lee’s end of his quote, as gun control promises are designed to capitalize on the stupidity of the masses as they march toward the slaughterhouses of tyranny.
Darn, I’m in a strange mood this evening!
