"Now they’re tryin’ to take my guns away
And that would be just fine
If you take ‘em away from the criminals first
I’d gladly give you mine"
- Charlie Daniels Band, A Few More Rednecks

"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy,
let it slip away again; poor fools. And their grand-children are once more slaves."
- D. H. Lawrence

"Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the constitution
by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a safety hazard don’t
see the danger of the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others
to use this same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like."
- Alan Dershowitz
