"Anyone found in possession of a handgun except a legitimate officer of the law goes to jail -- period."
Rowan in a 1981 column.
David Brinkley: "Suppose somebody was breaking into your house at night, and you didn’t have a gun. Wouldn’t you wish you had one?"
Sam Donaldson: "No, I’d call the police immediately, I’d slam the doors, I’d cower under the bed, or in the closet..."
