“Know guns, no crime; no guns, know crime” ("No guns, no freedom; know guns, know freedom")

“No god, no peace; know god, know peace” has been cited in print since at least 1976. Many gun sayings have a similar formula. “No Guns - No Freedom; Know Guns - Know Freedom” was cited in print in 1999; “My coinage, parodying the Christian bumpersticker slogan” was added by the poster.

“Know guns, know peace and safety; no guns, no peace nor safety” began appearing on Internet lists (titled “Gun Refresher Course” or “Firearms Refresher Course") starting in 2000. “‘Know guns, no crime. No guns, know crime.’ - Ralph Lauretano” was cited on Twitter on December 16, 2012.
