Last week, the digital billboard featuring his face next to the aforementioned sentence was unveiled at the corner of Mason and Highland avenues.

"They’re not going to come knocking on our doors, asking for our guns. There’s too many of us," said Haywood County resident Javier Moraga, a 26-year-old gun enthusiast who works at an Asheville hotel.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
