A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.
“If I could, I would take all the guns in America, put them on big barges and go dump them in the ocean. Nobody would have a gun. Not police, not security, not anybody. We should eliminate all of them.” — Oregon Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker, using the murder trial of a drive-by shooter as an opportunity to spew his anti-gun beliefs.
“(It’s) a first step to greater Second Amendment rights for D.C. residents … I think they have effectively conceded that the ban is unconstitutional.”— Attorney George L. Lyon Jr., after the District decided not to enforce its stun-gun ban against the three Washington, D.C., residents he was representing.
“If they think it will stop crime, they’re sadly mistaken.”— Illinois State Rifle Association board member Mike Weisman, discussing incidents in which the so-called “Peaceful Communities” group stormed merchants in the Chicago suburb of Glencoe in an attempt to bully them into posting “No Guns” stickers—which would do nothing but attract criminals looking for easy pickings.
