Some things are timeless....

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
--Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment (1764).

We are a country of great men.... we need to elect some.

* men = men and women

Yes. Some things do appear to be timeless.

But this opening post is hardly a talking point for anything related to the goals of Law and Civil Rights.
