FIREARMS

Revealing quotes from those who know


"And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms....The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence

"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." - Thomas Jefferson

"The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good." - George Washington

"That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of The United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." - Samuel Adams

"The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them." - Thomas Paine

"To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws." - John Adams, A Defence of the Constitutions of the United States 475 (1787-1788)

"[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...[where] the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." - James Madison

"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves...and include all men capable of bearing arms...To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike...how to use them." - Richard Henry Lee

"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people... To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them..." - George Mason (wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights)

"A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." - Amendment II, Constitution of the United States

"The US government has given over $200 billion dollars in military aid to some eighty nations since World War II. US weapons sales abroad have grown to about $10 billion a year and compose about 70 percent of all arms sold on the international marketplace. Two million foreign troops and hundreds of thousands of foreign police and paramilitary have been trained, equipped, and financed by the United States. Their purpose has not been to defend their countries from outside invasion but to protect foreign investors and the ruling elites of the recipient nations from their own potentially rebellious populations." - Michael Parenti - Author, Historian

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." - Thomas Jefferson

"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." - Edward Abbey - Author

"Many times in the course of my visit [to a US military training institute] I heard discussion of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prevents the National Guard from acting as a local police force. The implication was that turbulence within the United States might one day require repeal of the act." - Robert Kaplan, The Atlantic Monthly, Sept. 1996

"The American propaganda system is not centrally programmed as it is in a totalitarian state. Instead it permeates the culture, the media, and the institutions. Individuals who point out unpleasant realities of current or past American behavior are often subjected to social pressures and treated as pariahs. They are disturbers of the dream." - William H. Boyer

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. - George Washington
