"To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." — Richard Henry Lee, Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic (1787-1788)
“... for health must not be sacrificed to learning. A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks. Never think of taking a book with you. The object of walking is to relax the mind. You should therefore not permit yourself even to think while you walk; but divert your attention by the objects surrounding you. Walking is the best possible exercise. ... “ — Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr - Paris, August 19, 1785
men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of
patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican
simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being
and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other
excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we
may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent
now, he who has a purse, let him take it, and likewise a sack; and he
who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one" (Luke
"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the Second Amendment, will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest."
"Those who have the command of the arms in a country are masters of the state, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please. [Thus,] there is no end to observations on the difference between the measures likely to be pursued by a minister backed by a standing army, and those of a court awed by the fear of an armed people."
“The totalitarian states can do great things, but there is one thing they cannot do: they cannot give the factory-worker a rifle and tell him to take it home and keep it in his bedroom. That rifle, hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or laborer’s cottage, is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against tyranny... "
