“Since 2001… people have gotten used to guards with machine guns outside the subway… we have rebuilt this entire city around the notion of foreign extremists coming here and flying airplanes into buildings… and you just told us that actually if you’re a militiaman, you can just walk in here with AR-15s.” – Carter

“We have created such breaches in society that have been happening for hundreds of years that we’ve ignored, and we can’t ignore them anymore – it’s too late.” – Alvarez
