Gun Control

If I were a criminal, I'd certainly feel more secure about attacking unarmed citizens than I would going after well-armed citizens who could shoot back and defend themselves. I'm just like the crooks in that respect: I _Love_ Me!

If I were a criminal, I'd certainly feel more secure about attacking unarmed citizens than I would going after well-armed citizens who could shoot back and defend themselves. I'm just like the crooks in that respect: I _Love_ Me!

And it doesn't take a Ph.D. to realize that, unless you can disarm all the criminals and other low-lifes lurking about, the idea of disarming honest, law-abiding citizens is absurd. -- I repeat! -- Until you can be sure that all the bad guys (and gals) have no more weapons, you cannot take guns away from the honest citizens who obey the law.

There's a lot of truth in some of these one-liners that are circulating
on the Internet, like:

*Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my guns.

*Assault is a behavior, not a device.

*You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.

*Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

*If you don't know your rights you don't have any.

*Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

*Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

*You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

*74,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

*A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

*Criminals love gun control -- it makes their jobs safer.

*An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

*The Second Amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.

*Know guns, know peace and safety. No guns, no peace nor safety.

*Only a government that is afraid of it's citizens tries to control them.

*When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

But I think this last one is the most important of all -- and the next
time you hear people advocating gun control, remember this: *The
American Revolution would never have happened with Gun Control.
