    Great gun quotes

    Some great quotes about guns:

    George Mason: "To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them."

    Mohandas K. Gandhi: "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.

    And the British people admired but ignored George Orwell, becoming gunless and gutless, losing their borders, language and culture, incrimentally, gradually, slowly.

    "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country."
    Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942

    “The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements. ... They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”
    Benito Mussolini, address to the Italian Senate, 1931

    "All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party."
    Mao Tse Tung, Problems of War and Strategy, Nov 6 1938, published in "Selected Works of Mao Zedong," 1965

    "Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advise by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual was to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia."
    George Mason, June 14, 1788, quoted on page 380 of The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adooption of the Federal Constitution, 1861, Jonathan Elliot, ed.
