A contemporary lesson

“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’s “Commonplace
Book”
