    False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Thomas Jefferson

    "For among other evils caused by being disarmed, it renders you contemptible"

    -Machiavelli.

    We're forced to appear disarmed in Florida. How pathetic.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" - George Washington

    The founding fathers of America are rolling over in their graves. Our Legislators should be ashamed of themselves.


    Niccol Machiavelli has a lot of really great quotes.

    "The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned."

    - Pennsylvania Constitution, adopted 1790.

    This is what the US Second Amendment should have said all along.

    Welcome back mach1chris,

    I hope it was our charm that brought you back (or maybe you just missed us), but it's good to have another fellow Miami fighter on this forum (whose insight has been exceedingly valuable throughout). We want you here to stay and continue to give us insight and your colleagues our thoughts.


    Here's one from Our Professor himself, an ACLU civil lib who believes in the Entire bill of rights (I agree on almost all counts with him):

    "(Those) who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right (are) courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like."

    -- Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School

    "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
    Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

    "Be not intimidated ... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your Liberties by any pretense of Politeness, Delicacy, or Decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for Hypocrisy, Chicanery, and Cowardice." - John Adams

    Tyranny with Manners is still Tyranny.
