"The way I come out of my own personal experience, in which in Birmingham, Alabama, my father and his friends defended our community in 1962 and 1963 against White Knight Riders by going to the head of the community, the head of the cul-de-sac, and sitting there, armed. And so I'm very concerned about any abridgement of the Second Amendment.
I'll tell you that I know that if Bull Conner had had lists of -- of registered weapons, I don't think my father and his friends would have been sitting at the head of the community, defending the community."
- Condoleeza Rice
When I hear some airheaded blissninny or a blonde bimbo Miss America say "violence doesn't solve anything" well tell that to all the blacks who defended their lives and their communities in the 50's and 60's by arming themselves.
Violence. Or, more specifically, protective violence. That is a requirement of any civilized society. Without it we descend into chaos.
Her quote also points to another danger of gun registration. It can be used for violent, nefarious purposes by more than just government agents. Heck, just look at what anti-gun newspapers do. Can't publish lists of registered gun owners / CCW holders if there is no list.
