http://www.quoteworld.org/quotes/1If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws. ~Edward Abbey

Abramowitz

Women have been trained to speak softly and carry lipstick... Those days are over! ~ Bella Abzug
