"It’s sad to think that there are those in the United States who regard this basic right to self-defense with suspicion or outright contempt. Ironically, it is very often in the most crime-ridden areas that the average citizen is legally banned from carrying a handgun for self-defense. ..." ...

"I could, of course, make a long argument in favor of an armed citizenry from the standpoint of pushing off oppressive government, but we’ve long since been conditioned by public schools and the corporate media to shut up and do as we’re told."

"I'm not a big gun guy."

"I support the idea that people can own 'em, but I think the 2nd Amendment has been stretched to the point of absurdity." ...

"So the Senate has introduced a bill to ban guns in the legislative building."

"As you might expect, the NRA is squealing like a pig that can't get to the trough."

"Never mind that a concealed weapons permit won't let someone carry a gun onto an airplane, or into a courtroom, or into any federal building."

"Nope, the NRA professes that personal protection in Olympia means something different."

"No citizen should be afraid to leave their house unattended even for a few hours in fear of being burglarized. Nor should we have to be afraid of repercussions should we try to do something about these situations. All of us who are here tonight and those on our petition along with those who are afraid to come are asking the commission for help in cleaning up the 'breeding of an infestation of crime' that is taking over our street and county." ...

"These problems keep getting worse and for one reason the criminals do not fear the law. If they aren't arrested they don't go to jail for their crime. If they are arrested and are set free they do not pay for their crimes. Look at the picture - they think crime pays! ..."
