i got a few quotes:
"Don't think of it as `gun control', think of it as `victim disarmament'. If we make enough laws, we can all be criminals." -- Jeff Snyder
Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
-- James Madison, The Federalist Papers
"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
-- Mohandas Gandhi, An Autobiography, pg 446
one of the big reasons for first implimenting the "right to bear arms", was to allow the people to have the ability to overthrow the government if it became corrupt or took away the rights of the people.
