"Gun control has not worked in D.C. The only people who have guns are criminals. We have the strictest gun laws in the nation and one of the highest murder rates. It's quicker to pull your Smith and Wesson than to dial 911 if you're being robbed."
by:
Lt. Lowell Duckett
President of Washington D.C.'s Black Police Caucus
Source:
made in reference to a meeting between police and city residents held to discuss what firearms were legal for self-defense within D.C. March 19, 1996;
quoted in the WASHINGTON POST, front page, March 22, 1996.

    The malignant statist theocracy occupying this once free land is hell bent on executing all individuals with competing philosophies and religions. Such theocratic infestation is slow to begin its lethal goals as long as too many can fight back. Gun control (extreme limitation to elimination) advances the criminally insane's ultimate goals, D.C. being but one example.
     -- Mike, Norwalk
