After witnessing Senator Kennedy's antigun tirade at the Ashcroft
confirmation hearing, this is most appropriate:

"By calling attention to a well regulated
militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,'
our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The
Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military
relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his
country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
--John F. Kennedy, Junior Senator of MA in a 1959 letter to E.B. Mann [From the 1974
Gun Digest, article titled Gun Laws] -- Actually the most useful thing worth quoting is
that JFK was an NRA life member and he also owned two Colt AR-15s. Colt's have a
letter from him in which he tells them how much he enjoyed shooting his AR-15 from his
yacht off Cape Cod.

Fascinating. And look which one we got stuck with!
