Random Quotes of the Day

Wandering around the net, I snagged a few quotes I happen to like. Many of them are gun-related, but I like the philosophy presented by all of them:

‘‘Four out of five politicians surveyed prefer unarmed, ignorant peasants.’’ — Unknown

‘‘It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.’’ — Justice Robert H. Jackson

“A shoot-out is better than a massacre!” – David M. Bennett

“In the larger sense, however, the personal ownership of firearms is only secondarily a matter of defense against the criminal. Note the following from Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and passed on … or we will spend our sunset years telling our children’s children what it was like in the United States when men were free.” – Ronald Reagan
