    Prohibition gave us organized crime.

    The "War on Drugs" gave us criminal empires that control countries.

    What would a ban on guns give us?

    Freedom means freedom.

    This applies to a lot of things, and it is slowly eroding. It's kind of dumb, but I say it.

    There aren't too many 20 somethings that get that anymore. Most of your peers probably look at you funny or make a snide comment.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I've asked this of people who don't think anyone "needs" a gun for home and self defense: "Have you ever heard of an unarmed victim of a violent crime that was glad they did NOT have a gun to protect themselves? Because, let me tell you, I used to think that guns were evil and even the word frightened me. I've been the victim of violence, and when my attacker was strangling and raping me, I sure wished I had a gun right then."

    This country can't keep 10 million illegal people out or illegal drugs from South America out of the pockets of Junior High kids, yet they think they can make more laws against guns and actually keep them out of the hands of criminals and crazies at the expense of the rights and safety of law-abiding citizens.

    I just say, "I only want to protect my family." Usually shuts them up.

    i like the sentiment, but several sources on google say that he never actually said or wrote it.

    If there's one thing in the world I support, it's freedom. I value it over statistics and politics.

    Guns cause crime like flies cause garbage. I have that on a bumper sticker.

    And for the ladies.
    I carry a pistol because my rifle won't fit in my purse.

    I found something similar in Wikiquote (not that it's confirmed, but maybe closer to reality?):

    "A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.
    - First Annual Address, to both House of Congress (8 January 1790)."

    The security guards protecting the politicians pushing gun control aren't packing pocket knives and pepper spray...they have guns. Let's start by taking theirs away first.
