    And I wish to add a few historical quotes -

    A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
    --- Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr, 1785. The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, (Memorial Edition) Lipscomb and Bergh, editors.

    The Virginia ratifying convention met from June 2 through June 26, 1788. Edmund Pendleton, opponent of a bill of rights, weakly argued that abuse of power could be remedied by recalling the delegated powers in a convention. Patrick Henry shot back that the power to resist oppression rests upon the right to possess arms:

    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.

    Osir, we should have fine times, indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone...Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation...inflicted by those who had no power at all?

    In that light, I am ashamed. I have taken my freedoms and liberties for granted. I have spouted mindless political babble like so many out there. These men FOUGHT to create this country and establish these rights as inalienable... and I have, by my own inaction, abused those rights.

    I wish more people understood this. It's a very simple concept, yet so many are all-to-willing to settle for a permission slip instead of having to revolt against tyranny. It's the entire "lesser of two evils" dichotomy both major political parties rely on for votes.

    Free men are few and far between these days.

    Oh, and my favorite variation of two quotes in the OP:

    Saying guns kill people is like saying spoons made Micheal Moore fat. (Check out Bowling for Columbine if you don't know who that is.)
