Quote Of The Week

"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees.

Lockyer, 328 F.3d 567 - Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003
