Gun Control? HecK No! - PRO-GUN

Gun Control? Heck No!I own 3 guns for the purpose of defending my home and myself. I keep one in my bedroom, one in my computer room, and a permit to carry a concealed weapon in my little purse.

FAQ: Texas Concealed Handguns.

I often go to Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, MX. to buy groceries. I make sure to leave my gun at home because it is prohibited to carry a gun there. People found with a gun there, will spend a great many years in prison. No IF's or WHAT's about it!

Take a visit to Juarez, Mexico, and see for yourselves what happens when citizens are prohibited from bearing arms. If you're unaware of the terror that's taking over Cd. Juarez, Mexico, and the rest of the country, make a search to see for yourselves!

To take away my Constitutional Right of owning a gun, is to put my life in the hands of a would-be killer. A gun is not a toy; it's a weapon to protect your life against a potential killer. Learn everything you can about guns and practice shooting until you become an expert. Here's a great link for Gun Safety Rules.

I was the victim of violent crime when I turned 13 years old. I was helpless back then. NOT anymore, I pity the bastard who breaks into my home with the intention of harming me. I AM prepared!

Freedom of speech and freedom to bear arms is the same thing. To deny us one or the other is to invite tyranny.

The Right To Bear Arms FORUM:
ARE YOU PRO-GUN OR GUN CONTROL?

Sometimes if you want to get rid of the
gun, you have to pick the gun up.
- Huey Newton

I'd rather get my brains blown out
in the wild than wait in terror
at the slaughterhouse.
- Craig Volk

I have a very strict gun control policy:
if there's a gun around,
I want to be in control of it.
- Clint Eastwood

Freedom Of Speech Coalition

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Right to Bear Arms Quotes

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
-Thomas Jefferson, Proposed Virginia Constitution, 1776

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms...
- Richard Henry Lee, 1788, Member of the First U.S. Senate.

That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms...
- Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” - Thomas Jefferson

I sympathize with people who want to ban guns, but I can't agree with them. We have to be careful in our zeal to abolish guns that we don't wind up with counter-productive legislation that will leave armed only the people most likely to do harm with them.
- Hugh Downs, veteran ABC newsman

Gun bans don't disarm criminals, gun bans attract them.
- Walter Mondale
U.S. Ambassador to Japan

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be possible.
- Senator Hubert H. Humphrey

If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.
- Arkansas Supreme Court

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
- Thomas Jefferson

`Firearms have been around for over 400 years, yet it is only in the last 20 years that people have begun shouting "gun control". Why then, only recently, has this become such an issue? Moreover, why are there more mass murderers than at any other time in our known history? It is not because weapons are more powerful -- 200-year-old muzzleloaders have a much greater force-per-round than today's "assault rifles". It is not because weapons are semi- or fully automatic - rapid fire weapons have been available for most of the last century. It is not due to a lack of laws - we have more "gun control" laws than ever. It IS, however, because we have chosen to focus on "gun control" instead of crime control or "thug control." It IS because only recently has the public become complacent enough to accept, by inaction, the violence present in our society.'
- Kevin Langston

What the subcommittee on the Constitution uncovered was clear and long lost proof that the Second Amendment to our Constitution was intended as an individual right of the American citizen to keep and carry arms in a peaceful manner, for the protection of himself, his family, and his freedom.
- Senator Orrin Hatch
Chairman, Subcommittee on the Constitution
Preface, "The Right to Keep and Bear Arms"

The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.
- Thomas Jefferson

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
- George Washington

Pro-Gun Rights

"I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."
- Patrick Henry

Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drives into a corner, and who does nothing when he's there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark.
- Samuel Johnson

The highest number to which a standing army can be carried in any country does not exceed one hundredth part of the souls, or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This portion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. Besides the advantage of being armed, it forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. The governments of Europe are afraid to trust the people with arms. If they did, the people would surely shake off the yoke of tyranny, as America did. Let us not insult the free and gallant citizens of America with the suspicion that they would be less able to defend the rights of which they would be in actual possession than the debased subjects of arbitrary power would be to rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors.
- James Madison

What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. ...Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins."
- Rep. Elbridge Gerry
of Massachusetts

Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily lives, and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.
- John F. Kennedy

Dare Greatly

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belong to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Motive Power

It is only through labor and prayerful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Speak softly but carry a big stick.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Taking Chances

No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his body, to risk his well-being, to risk his life, in a great cause.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Insurance

Cultivate literature and useful knowledge, for the purpose of qualifying the rising generation for patrons of good government, virtue and happiness.
- George Washington

Fit To Live

If a man hasn't discovered
something that he will die for,
he isn't fit to live.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ask Not

Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
- John F. Kennedy

But, But, But

BUT, should we ask what our country can do for us, too?... Just ever-so-often?
- Savanah

Regrets

I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.

Alternatives

There are two ways of being happy; we may either diminish our wants or augment our means. Either will do, the result is the same. And it is for each man to decide for himself, and do that which happens to be the easiest. If you are idle or sick or poor, however hard it may be for you to diminish your wants, it will be harder to augment your means. If you are active and prosperous or young or in good health, it may be easier for you to augment your means than to diminish your wants. But if you are wise, you will do both at the same time, young or old, rich or poor, sick or well. And if you are very wise, you will do both in such a way as to augment the general happiness of society.
- Benjamin Franklin

Life's Loyalties

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
- Abraham Lincoln

Faith

During the Civil War fourteen inmates of Andersonville Prison, on August 20, 1864, bowed in prayer to the Almighty that He would send them water; and a spring broke out on the outside of the wall and ran through the prison. The people there were unanimous in their belief that it was of divine origin, the water in the nearby stream being fearfully unwholesome. The spring is reported to be still flowing.
- Christian Endeavor World

The Human Race

The human race is in the best condition
when it has the greatest degree of liberty.
- Dante

Past

Study the past if you would divine the future.
- Confucius

Impossibility

Law never does anything constructive.
We have had enough of legislators
promising to do that which laws can not do.
- Henry Ford

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

The will of the people
is the only legitimate foundation
of any government, and to protect
its free expression
should be our first object.
- Thomas Jefferson

Let Every Nation

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.
- John F. Kennedy

Genuine Heroism

The characteristic of a genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be common, nor the common heroic.
- Ralph Waldo Emmerson.

The Silent Wall

May that silent wall shout out for peace as we all should now and forever. For while most walls keep people apart, it's "the wall" that brought us together."
From, Images and offerings from
- Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Misunderstood

No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. Rarely have so many people been so wrong about so much. Never have the consequences of their misunderstanding been so tragic.
- Nixon

Die For

Courage,
an independant spark from
heaven's bright throne,
by which the soul stands
raised, triumphant, high,
alone.
- Unknown

Two Alternatives

We shall meanly lose or nobly
save the last hope of earth.
- Abraham Lincoln

Growth

All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. Works is not a curse; it is the perogative of intelligence, the only means to manhood, and the measure of civilization.
- Calvin Coolidge

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.
