Please join me in my mission to rid the internet of the bogus "liberty teeth" quote.

Bogus Quotes Attributed to the Founders
Introduction
Quotes that were never made by the Founders, but refuse to die, especially on the Internet, are discussed.

The "Liberty Teeth" Speech by George Washington

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. The church, the plow, the prairie wagon, and citizen's firearms are indelibly related. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable. Every corner of this land knows firearms, and more than 99 99/100 percent of them by their silence indicate they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference; they deserve a place with all that's good. When firearms, go all goes; we need them every hour.
--- Falsely attributed to George Washington, address to the second session of the first U.S. Congress.
This quotation, sometimes called the "liberty teeth" quote, appears nowhere in Washington's papers or speeches, and contains several historical anachronisms: the reference to "prairie wagon" in an America which had yet to even begin settling the Great Plains (which were owned by France at the time), the reference to "the Pilgrims" which implies a modern historical perspective, and particularly the attempt by "Washington" to defend the utility of firearms (by use of statistics!) to an audience which would have used firearms in their daily lives to obtain food, defend against hostile Indians, and which had only recently won a war for independence.
The "99 99/100 percent" is also an odd phrase for 18th century America, which tended not to use fractional percentages. It's clear that "Washington" is addressing "gun control" arguments which wouldn't exist for another couple of centuries, not to mention doing so in a style that is uncharacteristic of the period, and uncharacteristic of Washington's addresses to Congress, both of which exhibited a high degree of formality.

This is a false quote, but bits and pieces of it still continue to crop up from time to time. Even national publications, such as Playboy magazine, have been snared by it. (Playboy published the "quote" in December 1995 as part of an article entitled "Once and for All: What the Founding Fathers Said About Guns". After consulting with an assistant editor of the George Washington Papers at the University of Virginia, Playboy published a lengthy correction in March 1996.)

The above analysis (by Clayon Cramer) was taken in part from a "talk.politics.guns" usenet FAQ. (Original source: Cramer, Clayton, Firing Back, 1995. Used by permission of the author.)

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) also comments (excerpted with permission) on the liberty teeth speech as follows: "This has several variations including 'hour' for 'moment' and sometimes added as part of an actual Washington quote 'A free people ought not only to be armed...' The various citations are even more numerous than different wordings: Address to the Second Session of the First U.S. Congress; Speech to Congress of January 7, 1790, printed in the Boston Independent Chronicle, January 14, 1790; the Federalist No. 53; Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 1785."

Here's your buzz back.

My favorites are

- "You can have my gun when I shove it up your cold, dead a__." (Blake Ashley, Tucson attorney)

- "Pelosi can suck a gay AIDS dick. I ain't registering shit." (One of us, I forget who, but probably not George Washington)

Did someone say quotes?

No law ever written has stopped any robber, rapist or killer, like cold blue steel in the hands of their last intended victim.
- W. Emerson Wright

"So I'll say it again, though I sound like a fool: Your Will is the weapon. Your gun is a tool."
-Pax

The kilt had concealed a blaster strapped to one thigh and a knife to the other. He was aware of the present gentle customs against personal weapons. Such customs were nonsense anyhow, foolishment from old women - there was no such thing as "dangerous weapons," only dangerous people.
- R. Heinlein

"A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity"
-Sigmund Freud

"Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game."
- Andy Rooney

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".
-Thomas Jefferson

"If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
–The Dalai Lama

A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand.
- Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Roman Philosopher

"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
-George Orwell

It's better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.
