Why they are the evil party

Most of this comes via Xavier (with my comments in italics.)

"You like to fire assault weapons? I have a place for you. It's not in the homes and streets of America. It's called the Army, and you can join any time!"
Wesley Clark (Former Army General who nearly caused WWIII during the initial stages of the Kosovo operation, by ordering NATO units to attack the Russians at the Pristina Airport. Only averted by a staff revolt. The SECDEF Cohen asked him to resign. Would later appear on the cover of the gay Advocate.)

"There is no right to have access to the weapons of war in the streets of America. For those who want to wield those weapons, we have a place for them. It is the US military. And we welcome them."
John Kerry (We all know who Jon Carry is. My question is about "the weapons of war"--does he mean any gun? After all, they've been used in every war since the early 16th century. Or is he referring to edged weapons? After all, they've been used in every war since, well, ever. "the term Assault Weapon refers to a military weapon used to aid in military assault operations, that is, attacking a fortified position..."

Then again, perhaps some people shouldn't be allowed to own a gun...


"Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA. Ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State."
Heinrich Himmler

I seem to recall something about being known for the company we keep...
