    Thumbs up Favorite firearms quotes...

    What's your favorite firearms quote? One of mine is:

    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."

    Thomas Jefferson

    I like the one in my signature. Found it in a magazine very recently and loved it. I also like my old Al Capone quote signature: "You can get further with a kind word and a gun than with a kind word alone."

    I have a few more here: http://www.cafepress.com/wolfbard I have them on t-shirts for my own sanity and trouble causing.

    The Dalai Lama: "If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."

    George Mason: "To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them."

    Quote from Craig McElvoy, this piece of prose was supposed to have been engraved on the stocks of an Arizona lawman's Colt SAA.

    "Be afraid of no man,
    No matter what size.
    When trouble threatens, call on me,
    For I shall equalize."
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    “In England, if you commit a crime, the police don't have a gun and you don't have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say "Stop, or I'll say stop again."”

    Robin Williams

    “When I hold you in my arms and I feel my finger on your trigger I know no one can do me no harm because happiness is a warm gun.”

    John Lennon

    "You can get more of what you want with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word." - Al Capone

    Not that I am a fan of threatening people with guns, I just think it kind of a neat quote and sums up way he did "business".

    Talking

    Lady Astor: "Winston, if I were your wife I'd put poison in your coffee."
    Winston Churchill: "Nancy, if I were your husband I'd drink it."

    (opps, not firearm related, but I like it just the same)

    I love this one! To me, it answers the question... Nuff said!

    Thumbs up

    Saw this on another forum as a signature:

    Shane: "A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that."
