Via Sebastian I discovered something General Wesley Clark said:
If people want machine guns, let them join the military. We got em! But for public and personal use, absolutely not.
That is eerily close to something else said by a national leader a few decades ago:
If any citizen wants to possess arms, let him join the Party.
That isn’t the only instance either. See also the Council of People’s Commissars a few decades before Hitler.
You can tell a lot about a person by the company he keeps.
