    I need quotes

    I need to find quotes from politicians and activists who've called for bans on any/all firearms. Preferably with where/when they said it.

    I've got a bit of an argument with someone who thinks the government would never actually want to/try to ban firearms, and I'd like to point out past words on this. I used to have a list but it went away due to a pc problem.

    It would also be nice to have a list of proven occasions where the government has stolen guns.

    Maybe the JPFO has such a thing?

    Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.
    Here's a couple, though some are dated. Fortunately we can look forward to an Obama administration where we can finally institute some commonsense measures that respect 2nd Amendment rights while keeping guns away from children and criminals. If only we had though to pass a law to prevent criminal from legally owning guns! How could we have overlooked this obvious solution!

    Bennett, I didn't think of JPFO, I'll head there next.

    Weeks, that's a good start, thanks!

    Although I don't believe it's segregated between politicians and private citizens, Guncite (www.guncite.com) has quotes from people calling for bans, among other things. Worth a look even if you don't find exactly what you're looking for, IMO.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on CBS "60 Minutes":

    "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them -- Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in -- I would have done it."

    ‘‘Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA - ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State.’’

    — Heinrich Himmler

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilised nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!” Adolf Hitler

    “All military type firearms are to be handed in immediately...The SS, SA and Stahlhelm give every responsible opportunity of campaigning with them. Therefore anyone who does not belong to one of the above-named organizations and who unjustifiably nevertheless keeps his weapon...must be regarded as an enemy of the national government.” — SA Oberfuhrer of Bad Tolz, March, 1933.

    “Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the state.” - Heinrich Himmler.

    "You want an assault rifle? Join the Army!”
    ~US Rep. Carolyn McCarthy

    “Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” -—Sarah Brady

    “Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe.”
    ~Senator Diane Feinstein, 1993 (No we have a fundamental right to BE safe thanks to the second amendment.)

    “We’re going to hammer guns on the anvil of relentless legislative strategy! We’re going to beat guns into submission!”
    ~Senator Charles Schumer, 1993

    “Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected.” ~ACLU policy statement #47, 1986

    “If someone is so fearful that they are going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, it makes me very nervous that these people have weapons at all.”
    ~Rep. Henry Waxman

    "Americans may own guns for the purpose of hunting and target shooting"
    "There is an individual right to bear arms but it's subject to common sense regulation."
    ~Sen. Barack Obama, 2008

    "I would also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban." ~Sen. Hillary Clinton, 2008

    "Assault weapons in the hands of civilians exist for no reason but to inspire fear and wreak deadly havoc on our streets" ~President Bill Clinton, 1997
    "Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys."
