Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it. -Lewis Carroll
Everybody should fear only one person, and that person should be himself.
– Philip José Farmer
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it’s much, much bigger than that. I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated.
— Charlton Heston
There are two ways of spreading light:
to be The candle or the mirror that reflects it.
– Edith Wharton
If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State.
Americans who value freedom had better be more concerned about the gun control crowd than the criminals. The criminals want your money. The Neo-Totalitarians want your freedom.
— Charlie Reese
Leaders who can’t be questioned end up doing questionable things.
Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.
― Martin Luther King Jr.
Quote O’ The Day
In 1789, it was merely ridiculous for a public figure to propose that the citizenry should relinquish its arms; in 2023, it is downright psychotic.
Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day.
– Benjamin Franklin
“With guns in the hands of the public, sure there will be tragedies, but without them there will be genocides.” – unattributed
One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.
To make certain that crime does not pay, the government should take it over and try to run it. — J. Norman Collie
In Washington, the clearer a statement is, the more certain it is to be followed by a ‘clarification’ when people realize what was said.
The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. – St. George Tucker
The Left considers the fight over free speech to be a political death struggle, and they are right about that. If anything deserves to be strangled in its crib it is the Left’s current assault on the First Amendment.
Higher education in America increasingly resembles what a foreign conqueror would impose on a defeated population in an effort to break its will.
The natural right of self-defense is what the Second Amendment is about. Not hunting. Anyone who interjects hunting into discussions of the Second Amendment is either trying to deceive or doesn’t know the amendment and its true purpose.
