Friday Quote – Lysander Spooner

To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the law abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless.


  1. From which of his writings is this sourced from?

  2. I don’t remember off-hand. I believe I got it from a FB post.

  3. Thank you. I have been trying to verify this as an actual Lysander Spooner quote, which it is widely attributed to him. But the only person that I have been able to verify this as a quote by is Jeffrey R. Snyder. That is not to say Jeffrey didn’t used it from Lysander, though.

    Thank again,
