Guns & Founding Fathers
Gerorge Washington: “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restains evil interference---they deserve a place of honor with all that is good”
“Firearms are second only to the the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth”.
Thomas Jefferson: “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”.
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”.
James Madison: “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being arms which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms”.
“The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun”.
