ordinary Americans to legitimately own handguns and rifles ... that 
we are unable to think about reality."
    * -- Bill Clinton, USA Today, 11 March 93, pg. 2A
    * "The last time I checked, the Constitution said 'of the people,

to be evaluated by how they scored on written and firing tests, and 
have to pass the tests in order to own a gun. And I would tax the 
guns, bullets and the license itself very heavily."

    * -- Mel Reynolds, U.S. Congressman, CNN Crossfire, 9 Dec 93
    * "We're going to have to take this one step at a time, and the 
first step is necessarily - given the political realities - going to 
be very modest. Right now, though, we'd be satisfied not with half a 
loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal - total control of all guns-

of all handguns and all handgun ammunition - except for the military, 
policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs and 
licensed gun collectors - totally illegal."

the provisions ... will be punished with imprisonment and a fine.
    * -- Nazi Law, Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons, 
11 Nov 1938, German Minister of the Interior
