20 Hours in America, Part 2 (4.2)
Bartlet: More than any time in recent history, America's destiny is not of our own choosing. We did not seek nor did we provoke an assault on our freedom and our way of life. We did not expect nor did we invite a confrontation with evil. Yet a true measure of a people's strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive. Forty-four people were killed a couple of hours ago at Kennison State University. Three swimmers from the men's team were killed and two others are in critical condition when, after hearing the explosion from their practice facility, they ran into the fire to help get people out. Ran into the fire. The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels tonight. They're our students and our teachers and our parents and our friends. The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels, but every time we think we have met our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and are reminded that that capacity may well be limitless.
Bartlet's Third State of the Union (2.13)
Congressman Shallick: But this White House uses the first amendment to protect flag burning, to protect pornography, to ban school prayer. Why, when the second amendment clearly says that the federal government will not infringe upon a citizen's -
Toby: Because it doesn't.
Shallick: - right to keep and bear arms -
Toby: It doesn't say that.
Toby: In fact, it doesn't say that at all. The only way it says that at all is if you remove some words from it.
Shallick: Oh, look. Will you -
Toby: It says "a well-regulated militia, being necessary for the security of the free state...the government shall not infringe." The words regulated and militia are in the first sentence. I don't think the Framers were thinking of three guys in a Dodge Durango.
Shallick: Well, you don't really know what the Framers were thinking, do you?
Toby: No. But I do know that if you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, and Australia, you've got a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year and they had 112. Do you think it's because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it's because those guys have gun control laws?
