"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Newt Gingrich and Marsha Blackburn Analyze Gun Control Proposal - Face The Nation

"There are a finite number of mass murders in the last 25 years, a series of hearings has started with actually evaluating these people. Who are they? I just sat through a wonderful report by the author of "Rawhide Down" which he talked about Reagan being shot by a .22 pistol by the way. The reason Hinckley shot him is he wanted to get Jodi Foster's attention.

Now, I mean you look at these kind of things, and the guy who killed people tragically in Newtown was using his mother's guns. So the background check wouldn't have done any good. The young man in New Mexico who killed his family, tragically, had actually been given the guns by his father to protect the family. I mean, I think we have to look at what's really going on and not just rush in to a 20-year-old idea that didn't work. By the way, gun murders have gone down since the assault weapons ban ended. There are fewer gun murders today since the ban ended."
