really liked it

Sad, however no other book has put so simply and eloquently the way I feel about guns. With a fews lines, ol' Vonne, said what I've been trying to explain for years!

"My wife has been killed by a machine which should never have come into the hands of any human being. It is called a firearm. It makes the blackest of all human wishes come true at once, at a distance: that something die. There is evil for you. We cannot get rid of mankind's fleetingly evil wishes. We can get rid of the machines that make them come true. I give you a holy word: DISARM."
