Dumb, Dumber And Dumbest by Charley Reese
*** begin quote ***
If you believe in the right to life, then you must believe in the right to have the means to defend that life. Unless you wish to spend years learning the bow and arrow and the broadsword, I’d suggest you join 4 million others and me in the National Rifle Association, lest a bunch of dumb urban politicians put you and your family at the mercy of any wandering criminal.

True then; even truer now.
Although I’d suggest the Gun Owners of America as opposed to the NRA. The NRA accepts the concept of “reasonable gun regulation”. There is no “reasonable regulation” of ANY right! Either it is an “inalienable right” or it’s something subject to the whim of the Gooferment.
And, about Right to Life, or any “right”, you only have the “rights” that you are willing to fight for and exercise.
(The interesting point about the RKBA is that with concealed carry, you don’t have to carry to get a benefit. See the criminals have to guess who packing and who isn’t. Like sprinkling sheepdogs with big teeth in the flock of sheep. Quite a surprise for the wolves when they guess wrong. See “gun free zones” merely tell criminals that they have nothing to fear. We let the school janitor carry tools; the gun is nothing more than a tool.)
Like that Churchill quote! “…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.
When do the sheep fight? When on the way to the slaughter?
