“You don’t need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that’s right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars… five thousand dollars per bullet… You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders.
Yeah! Every time somebody get shut we’d say, ‘Damn, he must have done something ... Shit, he’s got fifty thousand dollars worth of bullets in his ass.’
And people would think before they killed somebody if a bullet cost five thousand dollars. ‘Man I would blow your fucking head off…if I could afford it.’ ‘I’m gonna get me another job, I’m going to start saving some money, and you’re a dead man. You’d better hope I can’t get no bullets on layaway.’
So even if you get shot by a stray bullet, you wouldn't have to go to no doctor to get it taken out. Whoever shot you would take their bullet back, like "I believe you got my property.”
Chris Rock

Jeff Cooper
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

Adolf Hitler
“To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”
Adolf Hitler

Theodore Roosevelt
“The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!”
Theodore Roosevelt

Thomas L. Friedman
“In my world, you don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and be against common-sense gun control — like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and oppose programs like Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children...The term “pro-life” should be a shorthand for respect for the sanctity of life. But I will not let that label apply to people for whom sanctity for life begins at conception and ends at birth. What about the rest of life? Respect for the sanctity of life, if you believe that it begins at conception, cannot end at birth.”
Thomas L. Friedman

Adolf Hitler
“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”
Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

Hugh Howey
“He’d only ever seen a gun once, a smaller one on the hip of that old deputy, a gun he’d always figured was more for show. He stuffed a fistful of deadly rounds in his pocket, thinking how each one could end an individual life, and understanding why such things were forbidden. Killing a man should be harder than waving a length of pipe in their direction. It should take long enough for one’s conscience to get in the way.”
Hugh Howey, Wool Omnibus

Jarod Kintz
“The best place to store your weapons safely is in your enemy’s hands. It is in your best interest to be defenseless while your rulers have all the weapons. After all, the government knows what’s best for you.”
Jarod Kintz, Xazaqazax

Stephen King
“One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander's last meal.”
Stephen King, Guns

Stephen King
“How many have to die before we will give up these dangerous toys?”
Stephen King, Guns

Quentin R. Bufogle
“To all my fellow Americans who simply insist on hangin' on to those guns ... Two things: 1) Enjoy 'em! 2) Please keep them hidden in a safe, secure place where the young 'uns can't get at 'em (I'd suggest the same place you keep the textbooks on evolution and global warming).”
Quentin R. Bufogle

Quentin R. Bufogle
“If you're one of those delusional 2nd Amendment types who believes you and your trailer park 'militia' might need to take on the Army, the Navy, the 101st Airborne and SEAL Team 6; not only should you be denied the right to bear arms -- but the right to your belt & shoelaces as well ... 'cause you're stark, ravin' batshit!!!”
Quentin R. Bufogle

“And they are ignorant that the purpose of the sword is to save every man from slavery.”
Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, Pharsalia: The Civil War

Jonathan Heatt
“America: Land of the free and home of the gun.
We are not brave, we are cowards, or we would have done something, anything after Newtown. Instead we did Nothing.”
Jonathan Heatt, Teaching Snapping Turtles How To Chew Bubblegum

“It is said that "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." If this is the case, then let's keep guns legal and just ban the people who want them. There. Problem solved. Guns remain legal, thereby satisfying the folks who love them, and the folks who love them will be safely locked up in a padded cell where they can't shoot anyone, thereby making the anti-gun folks happy.”
Kropotkin Beard

Quentin R. Bufogle
“We don't have a gun problem; we have a math problem: ZERO GUNS = ZERO GUN-RELATED DEATHS.”
Quentin R. Bufogle

“The downside to gun control is genocide.”
John Ross, Unintended Consequences

Quentin R. Bufogle
“Guns kill far more quickly and efficiently than knives, or crossbows, or toenail clippers; and, unlike bombs, you don't need to build one in your basement -- they come ready-made! There's a reason why guns are the overwhelming weapon of choice among mass-murderers.”
Quentin R. Bufogle

J.C.  Phillips
“Anyone can shoot a gun but the real power comes from non-violent means.”
J.C. Phillips, If History Is Our Guide: Commentary of Events that shaped 2011-2015

Nick Offerman
“When unspeakable violence is enacted upon innocents, say, in a school or movie theatre, and the survivors and the families of the victims, in the throes of pain and anguish, want to ask, “Why did this happen?,” “How did this happen?,” and “What can we do to prevent this from happening again?,” and one of the areas they (still we) focus their scrutiny is that of the highly efficient weapons of warfare that are casually available to us citizens of the United States, then we frightened gun owners have the chance to be human and say, “Okay, this is a horrible tragedy. Let’s open up a conversation here.” Instead, I’m surmising, out of fear, we throw up our defenses and behave in a very confrontational way toward such a conversation , citing the Second Amendment as the ultimate protection of our rights, no matter how ridiculously murderous the firearm, which, unfortunately, makes us look like dicks.”
Nick Offerman

Quentin R. Bufogle
“He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword. (Unless the other guy has a gun!)”
Quentin R. Bufogle

Quentin R. Bufogle
“Why do we still cling to the intellectually retarded notion that liberty can be obtained, maintained, or lost at the end of a gun barrel? When you're working 3 minimum wage jobs to make the minimum payment on a pair of socks you bought 12 years ago because your credit card company slapped you with an interest rate that would make a loan shark holler WTF! ... well, no one needs to hold a gun to your head. Your ass has already been sold down the river.”
Quentin R. Bufogle

Quentin R. Bufogle
“It takes a good guy with a gun, to stop a bad guy with a gun (unless the bad guy's a much better shot).”

Quentin R. Bufogle
“Personally, I think we should remove the word "shooting" from the vernacular. It's an ugly, biased word that somehow creates the assumption that a gun was involved. Let's go with 'Interpersonal Ballistic Event' (IBE).”
Quentin R. Bufogle

Forrest  Carr
“Guns are not the problem. The species is the problem.”
Forrest Carr, A Journal of the Crazy Year

“You can tell a lot about a woman's mood by just looking at her hands... for instance, if she's holding a gun, she's probably angry.”
Roney Ngala

Stephen King
“But the pistol, this Walther...it was as if it had been made for the express purpose of shooting people. With a chill Richie realized that was why it had been made. What else could you do with a pistol? Use it to light your cigarettes?”
Stephen King, It

“Your gun may be able to mow down a bunch of elementary school kids, but it can't stop a tank.”
Allison Kilkenny Jamie Kilstein

Quentin R. Bufogle
“Remember: Guns don't kill! -- The dimwits who insist EVERYONE should have the right to own 'em do!”
Quentin R. Bufogle
