I do not believe in people owning guns. Guns should be owned only by [the] police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state.

Chemists employed by the police can do remarkable things with blood. They can . . . weave it into a rope to hang a man.

Chemists employed by the police can do remarkable things with blood. They can find it in shreds of cloth, in the interstices of floor boards, on the iron of a heel, and can measure it and swear to it and weave it into a rope to hang a man.

A Quote by Joseph R. Garber on achievement, bitterness, equality, good, happiness, harmony, libraries, police, politics, power, respect, self-respect, speech, superiority, thought, tolerance, truth, and women

I cannot feel good about being a woman unless you feel bad about being a man. I cannot be proud of being black unless you are ashamed of being white. I cannot respect myself for being gay unless you are embarrassed that you are straight. Tolerance has been put by the boards; it is a stale and bitter thing and we will have none of it. Equality, likewise; is condescending at best and in truth intended to demean. If I am to achieve the inner harmony and self-respect that is my due, it will not suffice for you and I to be equals. No! Nothing less than superiority will make me happy. And to ensure that I make my point, I shall commend your libraries to the flames, rewrite your histories, purge your dictionaries, and arm the thought police with power to enforce political correctness in all speech and apprehension.

A Quote by John J. Miller on belief, change, economics, judgment, laws, lawyers, police, politicians, religion, slavery, society, and words

Laws are only words, words written on paper, words that change on society's whim and are interpreted differently daily by politicians, lawyers, judges, and policemen. Anyone who believes that all laws should always be obeyed would have made a fine slave catcher. Anyone who believes that all laws are applied equally, despite race, religion, or economic status, is a fool.

A Quote by Jeff Cooper on citizenship, family, police, and privacy

The police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our development, and they cannot even protect themselves in many cases. It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his family, and this is not only acceptable, but mandatory.

We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police. (The question, of course, is whether this is good or bad.)

A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on accuracy, commitment, conquest, force, persecution, police, principles, silence, and thought

Because the Nazi venom worked its way even into our thoughts, every accurate thought was a conquest; because an all-powerful police sought to force us into silence every word became as precious as a declaration of principle; because we were persecuted, each of our gestures carried the weight of a commitment.

A Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey, Jr. on laws, people, and police

There are not enough jails, not enough police, not enough courts to enforce a law not supported by the people.
