    Question pro & ainti gun quotes

    I am looking for a list of both pro and ainti gun quotes.
    i have these two that i have always liked:

    "If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
    -The Dali Lama, Famous Gun Nut

    Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.
    -Mohandas Gandhi, Famous Gun Nut


    i would like to add a few more pro gun quotes by famous, respected people. and also a few anti gun quotes. especially if i can end it with

    -Hillary Clinton, idiot

    or something similar

    I wish I had the time to dig it up, but one of my favorites is from Adolph Hitler.
    Paraphrased:
    The world will follow us into the 20th centery as the first nation with total gun control...

    I'lll see if I can find it and post it heere verbatim.

    EDIT:

    Well, That didn't take long! The quote that I referenced is debunked as falsely attributed to Adolph Hitler HERE

    Quote Originally Posted by GunCite

    The "Hitler" Quote That Wouldn't Die: "1935 Will Go Down In History!"

    "This year* will go down in history! For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
    ---Falsely attributed to Adolf Hitler, "Abschied vom Hessenland!" ["Farewell to Hessia!"], ['Berlin Daily' (Loose English Translation)], April 15th, 1935, Page 3 Article 2, Einleitung Von Eberhard Beckmann [Introduction by Eberhard Beckmann].

    This quotation, often seen without any date or citation at all, suffers from several credibility problems, the most significant of which is that the date given (*in alternate versions, the words "This year..." are replaced by "1935..." has no correlation with any legislative effort by the Nazis for gun registration, nor would there have been a need for the Nazis to pass such a law, since gun registration laws passed by the Weimar government were already in effect. The Nazi Weapons Law (or Waffengesetz) which further restricted the possession of militarily useful weapons and forbade trade in weapons without a government-issued license was passed on March 18, 1938.

    Here are a few that I enjoy

    "Expecting a carjacker or rapist or drug pusher to care that his possession or use of a gun is unlawful is like expecting a terrorist to care that his car bomb is taking up two parking spaces."
    -Joseph T. Chew, "Usenet posting in talk.politics.guns"


    and

    "The 2nd amendment was never intended to allow private citizens to 'keep and bear arms.' If it had, there would have been wording such as 'the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.'"

    -Ken Konecki, July 27, 1992
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    From presidential candidate Barack Obama during a speech at Vernon Park Church of God in Chicago.

    "If you want to hunt, go hunt. Nobody is trying to take your rifle or shotgun away."

    I wonder what he thinks of CCW?

    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to

    "In America, freedom and justice have always come from the ballot box, the jury box, and when that falls, the cartridge box." - Steve Symms, U.S. Senator, Idaho

    Luke 11:21 "When a man, fully armed, guards his house, his possessions are undisturbed."

    "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.-Luke 22:35-37

    "To disarm the people (is) the best and most effective way to enslave them..." - George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debate at 380.

    "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." - Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, pages 184-188.

    "Arms in the hands of citizens [may] be used at individual discretion... in private self-defense..." - John Adams, A defense of the Constitutions of the Government of the USA, 471(1788)

    "To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." - Richard Henry Lee writing in "Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic"

    The right of the people to bear arms is not ...in any manner dependent upon that instrument [The Constitution] for it's existence." - United States vs. Cruikshank, US Supreme Court, 1876.

    "Today's liberals wish to disarm us so they can run their evil and oppressive agenda on us. The fight against crime is just a convenient excuse to further their agenda. I don't know about you, but if you hear that Williams' guns have been taken, you'll know Williams is dead." -Walter Williams, Professor of Economics, George Mason University
    From the ANTI side:
    "We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society." -Hillary Clinton, 1993

    "Comrades! We must abolish the cult of the individual decisively, once and for all." -Nikita Khrushchev, February 25, 1956 20th Congress of the Communist Party

    "Yes, I'm for an outright ban [on handguns]." -Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., 60 Minutes interview

    "I honestly think and I am not an expert on the amendments I think the only people in this nation who should be allowed to own guns are police officers. I don't care if you want to hunt, I don't care if you think it's your right. I say, 'Sorry. It is 1999, we have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun and if you do own a gun, I think you should go to prison.'" -Rosie O'Donnell, April 21, 1999

    "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them... "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in," I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here." -U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, CBS-TV's "60 Minutes," February 5, 1995, speaking about her authorship of the 1994 "assault weapons" ban

    "Every good Communist should know that political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. The Communist party must control the guns" -Mao Tse Tung

    "The NRA is right...handgun controls do little to stop criminals from obtaining handguns." -Josh Sugarman, former communications director for the Coalition Against Gun Violence

    The only way to discourage the gun culture is to remove the guns from the hands and shoulders of people who are not in the law enforcement business.-New York Times

    The [American Academy of Pediatrics] believes handguns, deadly air guns and assault weapons should be banned.-American Association of Pediatrics

    I don't know why people carry guns. Guns kill people.-Michael Bloomberg

    For target shooting, that's okay. Get a license and go to the range. For defense of the home, that's why we have police departments. -James Brady

    We must get rid of all the guns.-Sarah Brady

    [P]eople who like assault weapons, they should join the United States Army; we have them. -Wesley Clark

    We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans to own handguns and rifles that we are unable to think clearly about reality. -Bill Clinton

    If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees.- Bill Clinton

    OK goaway farm. That one really scares me. I never heard that one before. Do you have a link where I can see the rest of what he said...... And didn't this guy raise his right hand and swear on the bible that he would defend the constitution??? And I suppose he claims that "I never had sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky."
