“Violence exercised merely in self-defense, all societies, from the most primitive to the most cultured and civilized, accept as moral and legal. The principle of self-defense, even involving weapons and bloodshed, has never been condemned, even by Gandhi.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King
From A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, p. 32.

Anti-gunners absolutely HATE when we use MLK to support gun rights. The claws have come right out every time ive ever done it.
