"The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90
MPH, where the speed limit is 25. Your solution is to lower the speed limit
to 20." - Sam Cohen, inventor of the Neutron Bomb

"We maintain [privately-owned] arms largely because we seek to prevent
violence. Those that wish to disarm us do so that they may perpetrate it
with impunity." - R. Murray

"Men cannot be governed and remain men. Domesticate the wolf and he changes
both physically and mentally. His muzzle shrinks, his teeth diminish, he
loses size, speed, and strength, He grows spots. His ears flop. His brain
withers. He becomes a dog. Men are on the verge of becoming dogs -- the
changes are underway already -- unless we do something to stop it."
The Ceo Lia Wheeler, Phoebus Krumm, forthcoming

convinced that it says what he means."
