"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 in On Crimes and Punishment (1764).

Well I guess if we're going to go by a book written 300 years ago then we should abolish torture and the death penalty?

At least you can google better than the first guy.

I believe only people with sense should be allowed to have guns.
