Tracy Richardson Quote from “Everybody’s Magazine”

“Men, sometimes, become horse lovers, and ruin themselves thereby. Others give their lives up to their love of Automobiles. Still others sacrifice all for airplanes, or whisky or fine food, or old books, or art. Tracy Richardson, a real live young American, from Lamar, Missouri, is a victim of his love for the machine gun. You can play with horses, books, food, and even whisky, without necessarily killing anybody, even yourself. It’s different with machine guns.”
