Gun Quotes by Average Citizens

David Bennett e-mailed us with a gun quote of his own and asked that we create a page for quotations about guns by average citizens. We thought this was a great idea and created this page 5 minutes later.

If you have a gun quote from an average joe, even yourself, send it to us. (But make SURE it's not already listed. Okay?)
