"Bob Ricker comes by his negative feelings about the gun lobby about as honestly as a person can. For years, he was one of their own, a top lawyer for the National Rifle Association and, later, a lobbyist for gun manufacturers. When he talks about their tactics, he's describing something he's seen firsthand."

"So what's he doing now, criticizing the NRA at every turn and advising Mayor Thomas M. Menino on how the city can stop the flow of illegal firearms?"

"Following the Federal Convention of 1787 and the subsequent ratification of the Constitution, the several States began submitting amendments to Congress for consideration. By September of 1789, Congress had reduced 210 separate amendments to 12. The amendments were inserted into a congressional resolution and submitted to the several States for consideration. Of these, numbers 2-12 were adopted and became the so-called Bill of Rights."

"A little known fact about this resolution is that it contained a preamble declaring the purpose of the proposed amendments. Most modern editions of the Bill of Rights either do not contain the preamble or only include the last paragraph. ..."

Unlike the federal government rules, which defines any firearm made before 1899 as an antique and thus immune to regulations and restrictions, the San Francisco law covers all guns, regardless of age or condition."

"'Physicians have been so involved in their practice and taking care of their patients that we have not been paying attention to all that has been going on,' said Dr. Anne O. Wilhite, a Richmond-area anesthesiologist who was at the assembly recently."

"'I cannot believe this is a bill we are considering,' said Wilhite. 'It pertains to the health and safety of children to know if there are guns in the home.'"

The Senate committee, pressured and educated by physicians such as Wilhite, rejected the bill that had been passed by the House of Delegates 88-11.

"He was not so blatantly paranoid, in any case, as to fail the inadequate checks that allowed him legally to own the two Browning pistols and the two Smith & Wesson revolvers, together with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, he carried into Dunblane Primary. Ten years on, you are left only with a painful question. What are the real lessons of Dunblane?"

"Ever stricter gun control? Ever tighter security in and around schools? Ever bigger and ever better registers of those who are not fit to be around children? Improved vetting of anyone, anywhere, who might pose a risk to someone, somewhere? None of these are worthless; some count as the marks of a civilised society. Would they have stopped Thomas Hamilton, come the day of his choosing?"

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? [...] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 "Arrest")
