Registration is only a step.
The prohibition of private firearms is the goal."

common sense but rarely heard
 -- don dalgleish, london
Common sense? There is a complete lack of it here. "Prohibition" in a "liberty quote" is an oxymoron.
 -- Helberg, St. Louis Park
The art is in finding the middle ground gray area and negotiating it with success. There is no art to polarized black & white decisions.
 -- Anonymous, Reston, VA US
Janet Reno was and is a nazi. She worked under Clinton, agrees with Lenin, and killed liked Osama.
 -- David L. Rosenthal, Hollywood
Subjects can and should be disarmed Don, so good on ya mate! Us Free Men will retain our arms and the other perogatives of Free Men. We will give up our arms only unto death. I hope that frightens right down to your core. The United States will NEVER disarm its population. It would start another Civil War. And the military would step aside and keep outsiders at bay.
 -- Anonymous, Wichita, KS
NO gun should be prohibited. Prohibition is the end game of gun control. Perhaps Don Dalgleish will be the next victim of a criminal who doesn't care about gun prohibition.
 -- Joe, Rochester, MI
I give it a 4 for being a useful lesson in how the enemies of freedom think.

go Janet
 -- Robert, Sarasota
And this coming from the woman who ordered the burning deaths of children at Waco, sent a little boy to live under the heel of a Communist dictator, and made sure the criminal actions of Federal Law enforcement agents were allways swept under the rug. If I had her record on Liberty, I wouldn't want the public to be armed either.
 -- Brian D. Pickett, Tampa, Florida
..laughs.. I find it funny that an Englishman would champion gun control as "common sense" when it was because of the private use of arms that his country lost American control.
 -- Logan, Memphis, TN
Let it be known that the intent of the US government is to disarm the populace -- as soon as they can figure out how to do it.
 -- E Archer, NYC
Don Dalgleish, London: It's not called 'common' for nothing, is it? 'DEAD common'! In Britain, where the gun ban is virtually absolute, we have the following USDOJ statistics: http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/pub/html/cjusew96/crpr.htm || That said, hyperbolic accusations are rarely of much use to anyone. I haven't been able to find the full text (context) of this quote - any leads would be nice to have. On it's face it's a really frightening stance.
 -- Terry Berg, Occidental, CA
Fuck Janet Reno.
 -- Anonymous, Raleigh, NC
What do you expect? It's Janet Reno! Notice how most of the individuals making these statements have never had to walk a city street by themselves without a bodyguard. Reality dosen't live there!
 -- Rick, Baltimore
Oh, Anon, Raleigh, Really. What would we do without the benefit of people, with whom we disagree sufficiently, to motivate us to order our thoughts into cogent arguments supporting (or possibly modifying) our own 'positions'?
 -- Terry Berg, Occidental, CA
Well Terry, one thing we Wouldn't do is waste time arguing with idiots.
 -- Anonymous, Raleigh, NC
Anon, Raleigh, How right you are.
 -- Terry Berg, Occidental, CA
Contemptible hag.
 -- Devon, Edmonton, AB
She's a murderous whore. Who got away with multiple homicide and crimes aginst children. I step further than OJ It wouldnt surprise me none the least if she wasn't sleeping with osama.
 -- hmmmm , hmmmmm
 -- Cosmo, Free State
I was just wondering if the right of the people to bear "arms", includes the right to tactical nuclear weapons? I find no distinction in the constitution.
 -- Stephen Yarnall, West Palm Beach
 -- Anonymous 
Stephen, There is no distinction, back when the Constitution was written the most powerful 'weapon of war' was a Sailing ship with muzzle-loading cannon, and they were privately owned and commissioned by governments as 'privateers' to legally harrass other countries' shipping.
 -- A. McBeth, Simla, CO
I rate this very highly, not because I agree with gun control (I don't), but because I *strongly disagree* with gun control. Taken at face value, this statement supports the warnings I've heard from U.S. target-shooting enthusiasts. It also flies in the face of denials of intent to disarm the citizenry. I would, however, like to see it in context.
 -- Devi Rathod, Glenville, PA
I would dance on her grave.

Shame the bitch isn't dead yet. Piss on her and Hanoi Jane. Both should be shot for treason.

simple, let her get robbed at gun point, or have someone invade her home...is she going to try and talk it out first?!?

Janet Reno is an oathbreaker. She swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. I hope Tolkien was right about oaths following oath breakers until the end of all time. I hope hers haunts her into her grave.
 -- Linda, Somewhere, TN
Not that I'm a Janet Reno fan but she denies having ever said that...
 -- Anonymous, Barnegat
I see this quote a lot but haven't seen any proof that she ever made it. If anyone can provide the proof that she made this comment it would be very beneficial to make it available. The repeated posting of this alleged quote without proof ever being supplied is very damaging to the support for public firearms ownership. If anyone can supply proof to this quote please make it available. leeway337@hotmail.com
