    Gun Grabbers Take Notice

    They are called Panic Rooms into which the occupants of the UNARMED household can flee and hide while the ARMED thieves can take what they want.

    Of course, those that lack this can choose a cricket bat to defend themselves, their families, and their property from those that would do them harm or take their possessions. They are now looking to add the harsh penalties to sword possession as well.

    The problem with your thinking is that criminals will always find ways to get guns. The laws that you favor only serve to disarm the peaceful citizens leaving them as unprotected sheep to be fleeced or butchered.

    Lastly, an armed and informed populace can be a free one. Neither operative 'armed' or 'informed' can function independently; they must be invoked together. That was the thinking of the Founders.


    "Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin

    "... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

    Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334 (C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950)

    "If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained _ we must fight!" Patrick Henry

    "(T)he foundation of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality; ...the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained..." George Washington, First Inaugural, April 30 1789

    "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams

    "Political interest [can] never be separated in the long run from moral right"

    "Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God? Thomas Jefferson

    "The citizens of the U.S. are responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society"

    "We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government." James Madison

    "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." Thomas Jefferson

    "Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." George Washington
