Gun Control: "Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom" by Ron Paul



Quotes from "Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom" by Ron Paul

"... gun control clears a path for violence and makes aggression more likely, whether the aggressor is a terrorist or a government."

"... aggressive, terroristic shootings like this are unheard of at gun and knife shows, the antithesis of a gun-free zone. It bears repeating that an armed society truly is a polite society. Even if you don’t like guns and don’t want to own them, you benefit from those who do. It is better that criminals imagine they face an armed rather than an unarmed population."

"People have a natural right to defend themselves. Governments that take that away from their people are highly suspect"

"Tyrants from Hitler to Mao to Stalin have sought to disarm their own citizens, for the simple reason that unarmed people are easier to control. Our Founders, having just expelled the British army, knew that the right to bear arms served as the guardian of every other right."
