Quote of the day—Robert A. Heinlein

The police of a state should never be stronger or better armed than the citizenry. An armed citizenry, willing to fight, is the foundation of civil freedom.

[This is the same character in the same book which made this famous quote.

Also, from here:
the-police-of-a-state-should-never-be-stronger-or-better-armed-than-the-citizenry

the-police-of-a-state-should-never-be-stronger-or-better-armed-than-the-citizenry1

This should be intuitively obvious to the most casual observer of the 20th Century. But somehow many people have not done much observing and/or have no interest in civil freedom.—Joe]
