The quote of the day is presented by Guns.com.
Earlier this week, three American women and six of their children were murdered in northern Mexico when their vehicles were attacked by drug cartel members.
Some in the legacy media have cited a tweet by the family as expressing support for more gun control laws in America.

But other members of the family see the murders as evidence that disarming Americans is the last thing that should happen after the attack.
‘I don’t know where you’re standing on the whole (idea of) trying to take away the guns in America right now, but I say fight for those guns,’ she said.
‘These things are happening here in Mexico because people can’t protect themselves because by law they’re not allowed to own these guns.
‘So since the government isn’t doing their job of protection in the way that they should, these cartels can just wreak havoc and the people are left defenseless.
‘So I say hold onto your guns, people.’
