Now I will tell you, I have about a hundred shots on hand all the time -- three or four fifteen shooters and three or four revolvers, right here in the room where I sleep; and the Devil does not like to sleep there, for he is afraid they will go off half-cocked.
If you will lay a bowie knife or a loaded revolver under your pillow every night, you will not have many unpleasant dreams, nor be troubled with the nightmare; for there is nothing that the Devil is so much afraid of as a weapon of death.
President Heber C. Kimball, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 5, p.164. Cited in “Mormonism, Mama & Me,” by Thelma “Granny” Geer, p.190
Wow, Satan is easily overthrown by mere pistols and knives! Who'd a-thunk!
