Quote

"Germans who wish to use firearms should join The Schtzstaffel(SS), or The (SA) -Ordinary citizen's don't need gun's, as their having gun's doesn't serve the state.'' -Henrich Himmler

I chose this quote by Henrich Himmler because it is a deep/Inspiring quote meaning that those that have the authority to use guns or have been into the wars with army..should be sevring the (SS) or The (SA), Those who don't have the authority to use firearms should not be serving The (SS) or the state.
