What the Anti-Gun Crowd Says

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.
...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than
to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

"Second Amendment rights? Boolsheet! . . . We cominí after Ďem; we are a bad dream for the gun industry."
--Trial attorney Wendell Gauthier
The Weekly Standard, Feb. 1, 1999

"If the Court of Appeals disagrees with me or somebody else disagrees with my rulings, it doesn't bother me. After almost 33 years, I donít feel I have to justify myself to anybody but myself."
-- Judge Jack Weinstein after the Hamilton v. Accu-Tek trial's end.

"You donít need a legislative majority to file a lawsuit."
-- Trial attorney Elisa Barnes

"[I]t is imperative to steer the argument about guns away from the problematic area of criminal use, with its inconvenient focus on criminals. . . ."

"You just stir things up. I mean look, the gun issueís all over the place now. . . . We got bills flying all over Congress. . . . Eventually, the industry has to see us as the only reasonable people in town. It ainít going to be reasonable up on that Hill. And we are reasonable (ha-ha-ha). Thatís what it comes down to."
--Trial attorney John Coale
Washington Post, March 18, 2000

"We have the capacity to squeeze manufacturers like a pincer and hurt them in the marketplace."

Dayton Daily News, March 30, 2000

"Fed up with trying to move legislation, the [Clinton] White House is launching lawsuits to succeed where legislation failed. The strategy may work, but at the cost of making our frail democracy even weaker. . . . This is faux legislation which sacrifices democracy to the discretion of administration officials operating in secrecy"
--Robert Reich, former Clinton Administration Secretary of Labor
American Prospect, Jan. 17, 2002
