"It would be irresponsible to suggest that strangers cannot pose a lethal threat to women, or to deny that such crimes are particularly disturbing. Nonetheless, the fact remains that if a woman is murdered in the United States she will most likely be killed by an intimate acquaintance using a handgun. By recognizing that the greatest threat she faces is from a man she knows, women should act in their own self-interest -- and not in the gun lobby's financial interest."

-"Commentary" by Karen Brock, a "health policy analyst" with the Violence Policy Center in Washington.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
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 crime. — Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
