I believe everybody in the world should

I believe everybody in the world should have guns.  Citizens should have bazookas and rocket launchers too.  I believe that all citizens should have their weapons of choice.  However, I also believe that only I should have the ammunition.  Because frankly, I wouldn’t trust the rest of the goobers with anything more dangerous than string.  ~Scott Adams

How many does it take to metamorphose

How many does it take to metamorphose wickedness into righteousness?  One man must not kill.  If he does, it is murder…. But a state or nation may kill as many as they please, and it is not murder.  It is just, necessary, commendable, and right.  Only get people enough to agree to it, and the butchery of myriads of human beings is perfectly innocent.  But how many does it take?  ~Adin Ballou, The Non-Resistant, 5 February 1845HHQ
