"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

greater confidence than an armed man."
~Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
