Nearly Assassinated Ex-President on Gun Control

He became president after an assassin shot and killed President McKinley. He was shot and hit in 1912 while campaigning for the presidency. He fought in a war, later receiving the Medal of Honor. He hunted big game. Here is what Teddy Roosevelt said about gun control:
“The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!” 


  1. Gun control - Hitting what you're aiming at.

  2. Liberal gun control: Keeping the government safe from the people.
