“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
― Benjamin Franklin

“I’m not afraid of people who have bad intentions and who might be carrying guns in a place they aren’t supposed to be, because statistically the chances of encountering and being harmed by such a person are low.”

“I am however afraid of being in a place knowing that people are carrying guns lawfully and who have no ill intentions, even though statistically the chances of being harmed by such a person are even lower.”
