What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long.
Thomas Sowell ,The Vision of the Annointed.
Any law that burdens the right to keep and bear arms on the grounds that guns are a public health hazard should be treated the same as a law that burdens Atheism as a mental health hazard.
Civilization, as we know it today, owes it's existence to the engineers. These are the men who, down the long centuries, have learned to exploit the properties of matter and the sources of power for the benefit of mankind.
L. Sprague DeCamp
I do not like those who do good for me whether I want it or not -- the so-called 'do-gooders.' They are lice on the American Body Politic feeding their bleeding hearts by sucking the life blood from decent people who only want a little enjoyment out of life. They are the small-minded puritans who wake up at night in a cold sweat from the morbid fear that someone, somewhere might be enjoying himself without permission. They would reduce the majority of Mankind to the status of draft animals fit only to fetch and carry for the self-appointed elite class, live their lives as they are told, and willingly be slaughtered on command.
