Quote of the Day

Armed people are free. No state can control those who have the machinery and the will to resist, no mob can take their liberty and property. And no 220-pound thug can threaten the well-being or dignity of a 110-pound woman who has two pounds of iron to even things out … People who object to weapons aren't abolishing violence, they're begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically "right." Guns ended that, and a social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work.

~ L. Neil Smith (from The Probability Broach)

I am that 110 lady...not to mention that I am old, too. But I pack my equalizer with me, always.

Tewshooz, that sounds like wisdom to me.

Rev Paul,

I'm not that 110 pound lady, I weigh more and carry heavy duty equalizer. :-)

I'm not surprised, Sandy. Good for you!
