    "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
    neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Can it be supposed that
    those who have the courage to violate the most sacred laws of humanity...will
    respect the less important and arbitrary ones... Such laws make things worse
    for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
    encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
    greater confidence than an armed man."
    ~Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
    Crimes and Punishment."
