Firearms and Firearms Training

"Certainly, one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible." — Hubert Humphrey (Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, Feb 1960, p 4)

"A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it." — Robert H. Boatman

"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." — Bible, 1 Timothy 5:8

"If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them." — Angelina Jolie (quoted in the New York Daily News, 1 Jun 2008)

"Why carry a gun? It's a lighter burden than regret." — Tim Schmidt

"Although difficult for modern man to fathom, it was once widely believed that life was a gift from God, that not to defend that life when offered violence was to hold God's gift in contempt, to be a coward and to breach one's duty to one's community." — Jeffrey Snyder (A Nation of Cowards, 1993)

"And they were doing that which they felt was the duty which they owed to their God; for the Lord had said unto them, and also unto their fathers, that: Inasmuch as ye are not guilty of the first offense, neither the second, ye shall not suffer yourselves to be slain by the hands of your enemies. And again, the Lord has said that: Ye shall defend your families even unto bloodshed. Therefore for this cause were the Nephites contending with the Lamanites, to defend themselves, and their families, and their lands, their country, and their rights, and their religion." — Book of Mormon (Alma 43:46-47)

"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." — Colonel Jeff Cooper

"Blessed be the Lord my rock who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle." — Bible, Psalms 144:1

"Firearm safety - It’s a matter for education, not legislation." — Author Unknown

"I will teach my children weapons and warfare, so they might teach their children science and law, so they might teach their children art and literature." — Unknown Greek
