Quotations On Gun Control


“One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal.”

                                                                       Stephen King “Guns”

“When a country with less than five percent of the world’s population has nearly half of the world’s privately owned guns and makes up nearly a third of the world’s mass shootings, it’s time to stop saying guns make us safer.”

                                                                       DaShanne Stokes

“I only wish the NRA and its jellyfish, well-paid supporters in legislatures both State and Federal would be careful to recite the whole of it, and then tell us how a heavily armed man, woman, or child, recruited by no official, led by no official, given no goals by any official, motivated or restrained only by his or her personality and perceptions of what is going on, can be considered a member of a well-regulated militia.”

                                                                       Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

“It is time to start referring to those members of Congress who oppose gun control as what they are–Pro Death of Children and Innocents. They are the toadies of the NRA and the gun lobby, and they must be voted out of office. The time to act is now.”

                                                                       Charles F. French

  1. I like King’s quote–have them walk the hallways, talk to the victim’s families, have them look at the blood, see the shells…all of that. And while we’re at it, throw in the Republican party, too and have them experience the other hardships they put onto people with minimum wages, getting rid of benefits/social safety nets, the whole nine yards.

  2. Your quote is the best one, Charles. We have the power to change this situation if we get out and vote. My heart is broken, again… and again… and again. The Pro-Death party needs to end its selfish, anti-democratic reign of terror.

  3. When I was in elementary school, they had us read a book to earn a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Here’s an idea. If you want a weapon of war for your collection, you must read a classic, write a report on it, and take a multiple-choice test on the book. It’ll be an all-day affair. The book will be a surprise pick. I have a feeling that after the third book they’ll either not want to bother or they’ll see things differently and want to express themselves another way. What do you think?
