    I tripped over a great quote I'd used years back in a discussion the other day. I'd totally forgotten it but it was so perfect in that discussion. I thought it would be good to have a thread where we could copy paste these gems to support our arguments when new laws or just liberal smack talking comes up. This one I'd like to memorize, and not forget again.

    Judge Alex Kozinski, a Jewish refugee from Eastern Europe, summed up his pro-gun argument/anti-restriction argument in his dissent in Silveira v. Lockyer:

    Careful with the NAZI reference, Chief Judge Kozinski. Someone may think you're crazy, looney and don't understand your audience at all.

    I like the DOOMSDAY WHERE ALL OTHER RIGHTS HAVE BEEN LOST argument. It simplifies things for the simple people who by voting or abstaining have elected Socialists disguised as Santa Clause in recent years. If you want to be treated like a kid on Christmas you're gonna lose some rights.

    Better hold on tight to that 2nd A! Once it's gone you ain't gonna get it back!

    My favorite one is when people tell me bubblegum about guns, "i rather have a gun and not need to use it, then needing to use it and not have it"

    "My favorite thing about the gun control debate in America is that the exact same people who insist that buying a gun at a store, which at a minimum requires a government-issued ID and background check, is too easy will also tell you that requiring an ID to vote is an impossibly high hurdle to expect average people to overcome."

    One of my favourite quotes came from somebody I knew in NY who had an attempted car hi-jack by three young men. One of them said, 'Get out of the car right now, how's that sound?' He replode as he pulled out his handy Glock, 'There are three of you, so you get six each shots each...how's that sound?'

    They ran away and got into a car that was in full view of his dashcam. They were picked up in less than ten minutes. That'll teach 'em to pick on an off-duty detective lieutenant.

    People that try to take the guns are the people you should fear!
    He who has the power has control, and he who has control has the power!
    Guns don't kill people, the fork dosnt make people fat, the pen dosnt make people miss spell words, and cars don't make people speed!
    Guns are the final arbiter of freedom, with out guns, you have no freedom!
    History is often made one bullet at a time, time for more bullets and hard men willing to use them!
