When you are wrestling for possession of a sword, the man with the handle always wins -- Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

If you don't understand weapons you don't understand fighting. If you don't understand fighting you don't understand war. If you don't understand war you don't understand history. And if you don't understand history you might as well live with your head in a sack. -- Jeff Cooper

Home is where the oil stain on your dining table is either EP90 or Hoppes #9 but most likely both...

"Well-known saying : 'First thing we do is to shoot all the lawyers.' Have you noticed how many Gun Control Bills there are these days...?" -- unknown

Law changes, but "got to's" go on. You got the right to do what you got to do -- John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

"If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws." -- EDWARD ABBEY - Environmentalist/Writer (1927-1989)

"One tenet of the National Rifle Association's faith has always
been that handgun controls do little to stop criminals from
obtaining handguns. For once, the NRA is right and America's
leading handgun control organization [Sarah Brady's Handgun
Control, Inc.] is wrong. Criminals don't buy handguns in gun
stores. That's why they are criminals."
-- Josh Sugarmann, then the communications director for the
National Coalition to Ban Handguns ("The NRA Is Right," The
Washington Monthly, June 1987)

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure.
"From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.
"The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years.
"These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage."
-- Alexander Tyler, sometime in the late 1700s
