You are enough to drive a saint to madness or a king to his knees.
It's very dramatic when two people come together to work something out. It's easy to take a gun and annihilate your opposition, but what is really exciting to me is to see people with differing views come together and finally respect each other.
The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun.
I can kill a bad guy, but I can't save anyone. I'm not a hero. All I am is a killer. A dead killer who shit his pants.
I went to interview some of these early Jewish colonial zealots—written off in those days as mere 'fringe' elements—and found that they called themselves Gush Emunim or—it sounded just as bad in English—'The Bloc of the Faithful.' Why not just say 'Party of God' and have done with it? At least they didn't have the nerve to say that they stole other people's land because their own home in Poland or Belarus had been taken from them. They said they took the land because god had given it to them from time immemorial. In the noisome town of Hebron, where all of life is focused on a supposedly sacred boneyard in a dank local cave, one of the world's less pretty sights is that of supposed yeshivah students toting submachine guns and humbling the Arab inhabitants. When I asked one of these charmers where he got his legal authority to be a squatter, he flung his hand, index finger outstretched, toward the sky.
She was a ray of sunshine, a warm summer rain, a bright fire on a cold winter’s day, and now she could be dead because she had tried to save the man she loved.
They have the guns, we have the poets. Therefore, we will win.
Nox didn’t say a word. He waited, counting the seconds in his mind. Sometimes you counted bullets and sometimes you counted time. Either one could kill you.
Every time there is a mass shooting in the USA, I wonder if the shooter was an insane masturbator.
Speaking personally, you can have my gun, but you'll take my book when you pry my cold, dead fingers off of the binding.
Literary detection and firearms don't really go hand in hand; pen mighter than the sword and so forth.
I'm concerned about how accessible guns are.
Queen and Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses - I had a huge rock-band mania. I play a little bit of drums.
Guns are part of the American identity.
Whether on guns, race, culture or feminism, there really are two Americas.
I keep my guns on one part of the house totally locked up, and I keep the ammunition in another part of the house.
There's zero evidence, empirical or anecdotal, that more guns leads to less gun crime.
I've never cared for guns. In fact, when I did 'Scent of a Woman' I had to learn how to assemble one.
Guns are evil! And very little good comes from the availability of a bullet designed to kill human beings!
Let all of us turn from bullets to ballots, from guns to shovels.
