"The great object is, that every man be armed ... Every one who is able may have a gun."The people in power in the government are crooks. The rest of the government employees are rude, lazy, worthless people doing worthless jobs. END HUGE GOVERNMENT PENSIONS AND START 401's. It is time for a taxpayer revolution.
-- Patrick Henry, Elliot, p.3:386
"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms ... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible."
-- Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959
