Marshal Dan Troop
If men are going to fight, they'll fight. Now you check their guns, they'll think that you're afraid of them... These men aren't riff-raff. They're honest men. If you go telling them they can't be trusted, things'll get way out of hand. Maybe some day men won't have to wear guns. the way things are now, they do.
