Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better
for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an
unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
Jefferson's Commonplace Book, 1774-1776 - quoting from "On Crimes and Punishment",
by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764
A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.
