          And Finally The Saying ...

Ad Mortalianum Pour Musthavalata Stuphenourium De Lottoarius  

Loosely Interpreted - He who dies with the most Stuff      W I N S 


        The devil is in the details

The Delaration of Independence
is the only document in the world that quarantees the ''Pursuit of Happiness''


       It doesn't Guarantee Happiness,

   Second Amendment 


There's a Second Amendment ...

    In case the government
  fails to follow the FIRST one.


   Gun Control (and) Carry   

         An Armed Society

                       is a

                Polite Society


     Gun Control should be about


              Not Limitation 

   It is better to be judged by twelve
         ....  than carried by six

    Gun control means
      ...  being able to hit your target.

   When seconds matter ...
   .... the police are only minutes away

   When guns are outlawed

    .... only outlaws will have guns


Stop and Frisk

The law says who can carry

 - period - end of story


If you're under 21

you don't carry a gun
