‎The police can't stop an intruder, mugger, or stalker from hurting you. They can pursue him only after he has hurt or killed you.

The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords,‭ ‬bows,‭ ‬spears,‭ ‬firearms or other types of arms.‭ ‬The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues,‭ ‬and tends to permit uprising.‭ – ‬Toyotomi Hideyoshi,‭ ‬Japanese Shogun,‭ ‬August‭ ‬29,‭ ‬1558

‎The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed. – Alexander Hamilton

‭We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it.‭ ‬If you do that,‭ ‬you will double the danger.‭ ‬But if you meet it promptly and without flinching,‭ ‬you will reduce the danger by half.‭ ‬Never run away from anything.‭ ‬Never‭! --‬Winston Churchill‭
