"A gun cannot harm anyone unless there is a human being to pull the trigger. Ten million guns would be harmless unless some human became stimulated by hate, greed or prejudice. So the gun controversy becomes a spiritual problem. While strict gun laws might have some effect in showing the world that we are concerned about the problem of violence, violence is really a thing of the human heart and conscience. If men harbor the desire to kill and maim, they will find a way, guns or no guns"
Rev. Billy Graham (November 1968)
