Owning Guns Quotes By Quentin R. Bufogle

Our love affair with guns has nothing to do with tyranny, or militias, or self-preservation. Just ask any NRA member the following: If Jesus Christ himself were to come down off the cross and grant you one wish, would you opt for a world without guns
or the one we live in now? If every gun owner truly feared for their life and liberty, the answer would be obvious. But it's not about life and liberty. It's all about the sheer hard-on of owning a gun. — Quentin R. Bufogle

Owning Guns Quotes By Dave Kopel

Antigun advocates have always faced an uphill battle in this country. Americans have, to begin with, a constitutional right to gun ownership. Today, half of American households exercise this right, owning a total of about 250 million guns; and over 99 percent of those households do so in a responsible manner. To fight for major restrictions on an item that plays such a valued part in the lives of so many people looks like a nearly impossible task. So if you're really committed to the effort, and you want to win, what do you do? Simple: You lie. — Dave Kopel

Owning Guns Quotes By Michael Dukakis

I do not believe in people owning guns. Guns should be owned only by the police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state. — Michael Dukakis

Owning Guns Quotes By Quentin R. Bufogle

When has a civilian ever stopped a mass shooting with an AR-15? An AR-15 is a perfect weapon for mass murderers
not so much for self-defense. Would you bring an AR-15 along on a date? To your place of work? To the movies? If not, how can owning an AR-15 save your life in the event of a mass shooting? Why does the NRA keep telling us we need semi-automatic rifles for self-defense? Whose side are they really on? — Quentin R. Bufogle

Owning Guns Quotes By Jonathan Gottschall

Part of why I was attracted to the idea of owning a gun was self-defense, and part of it was that I've been fascinated by guns since I was a little kid, and I want to play with them. It seems like a lot of fun. — Jonathan Gottschall

Owning Guns Quotes By Gavin De Becker

While you may be able to keep your son Jimmy from owning [a gun], if you try to talk him out of wanting one, you are up against a pretty strong argument: You mean I shouldn't want a device that grants me power and identity, makes me feel dangerous and safe at the same time, instantly makes me the dominant male, and connects me to my evolutionary essence? Come on, Mom, get real! — Gavin De Becker

Owning Guns Quotes By Jeff Cooper

Buy ammunition! Remember that a man cannot have too many books, too many wines, or too much ammunition. Our adversaries on the other side are reaching for the excuse of lead poisoning. If they can push that idea through, you may wind up still owning your guns but without anything to shoot in them. — Jeff Cooper

Owning Guns Quotes By Massad Ayoob

In the end, the focus on safety should be credited to the entire firearms-owning community, the "gun culture" if you will. — Massad Ayoob

Owning Guns Quotes By Tom McClintock

The right is absolute ... government has no authority to forbid me from owning a firearm ... the debate is not about guns. It is about freedom. — Tom McClintock

Owning Guns Quotes By Dan Savage

So while gun owners are always saying that owning guns is about defending freedom, the only freedom gun owners seem interested in defending with their guns is the freedom to defend their freedom to own guns. — Dan Savage
