A Robin Williams quote for the collection

“The Second Amendment says we have the right to bear arms, not to bear artillery.”

  1. Speaking of the “right to carry”, Gene Lyons’ notes in his column today that the “good guy with a gun” failed to stop the “bad guy with a gun” in the recent Las Vegas cop-killing incident. He was speaking of the man who drew his gun on the murderous couple in the Walmart. They killed him. The police said the guy’s mistake was to draw without the intent to fire – that moment’s hesitation made him vulnerable.

    With open-carry spreading and this kind of advice, things are going to get lively. Flak-jackets, anyone?

    • Jim,, the example that always grabs me is the attempted assassination of Reagan. He was surrounded by armed and alert pros. None of those ‘good guys with a gun’ was able to stop the “bad guy with a gun”. It’s the most flawed phrase out of the NRA since Charlton Heston’s “my cold dead hands” .
