When I was young, high-school age, I was virulently anti-Communist. I lived in Alabama. My friends in this effort would tell me about how dictatorships would arise by first registering everyone's guns and then taking them away.

We are talking 55 years ago. I've been hearing this same horror tale for fifty-five years.

Ignorant of history aren't we? You must reckon it cannot happen here.

The government always has bigger guns than you do.

Yeah, but there are a lot more of you.

So cling to your guns and cling to your fears and myths.

I'm not going to try to take your guns away.


Better to die standing up as a free man than to grovel on one's knees as a slave.
