    Awesome article on gun rights and safety that includes a President and First Lady

    http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate...-to-fight-back

    excerpt:

    “I should have a chance of shooting the assassin before he could shoot me, if he were near me,” Roosevelt explained (in "Roosevelt As We Knew Him," by Frederick Wood) When Roosevelt visited Harvard University, the school’s president, Charles W. Eliot, was chagrined to discover Roosevelt strapping on a holster in his room, ignoring the Massachusetts law restricting concealed handguns.

    Theodore’s niece Eleanor obtained a revolver shortly after becoming First Lady. “I carried it religiously,” she recalled.

    Thanks. I just love the picture of Eleanor Roosevelt with a gun in hand instead of being surrounded with Secret Service agents.
