We've got to shake hands and organize against violence and this [gun control] us part of it. We're killing ourselves. There may already be enough handguns in this country to kill us all. But, this whole thing is massive. That's why I talk about no difference between the little and big bullets. We'll be dead just the same. It's gotta start somewhere to stop it. I told myself I would do this for one year. It's already been two. It's like an opiate and you do, I have, gotten addicted to it. It does become an obsession because the job is never done.
