Quote Of The Week

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. . . . One thing that I think is clear with young people, and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this. . . . We need to do this every day of the week, every school, at every level, and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way." - Anti-Gun Eric Holder, speaking to the Woman’s National Democratic Club in 1995, as televised on CSPAN in 1995-14 years before President Barack Obama appointed him as Attorney General, in Obama's Administration.
