"There was a brief chance to really look at gun possession -- at its perils and its positive possibilities. There was a chance for people to use the issue of guns at the Rhode Island State House to take an honest look at the right to bear arms. But the chance appears lost. Governor Almond and his administration have quietly folded on their proposal to restrict the carrying of guns at the State House to uniformed on-duty police officers." --Bob Kerr

"I won't argue about the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment, loosely defined, says you can have a gun if you want one. My question is why do you want one? Personal security? That's what people usually say when asked why they kept the gun around that their kid found or that their spouse used to settle a family argument..." --David Wells, The Cincinnati Enquirer
