I've fired my last shot. I think I should have another round in my belt.
Franklin D Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945), U.S. president. William Leutchtenburg, Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal: 1932-1940, p. 292, Harper & Row (1963). This is what the President told a group of Senators when he was attempting to get the arms embargo legislation repealed. He wished to use the ability of the United States to produce weapons to provide defensive armaments to the European nations threatened by the Axis powers. His appeal fell on deaf ears as they did not believe there would be a war. Six weeks later Hitler attacked Poland.
