WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS THOUGHT ABOUT "GUN CONTROL"
“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.”
— Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them [guns] by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference [crime]. When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour."
(George Washington: Address to 1st session of Congress).
“The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” — Samuel Adams.
"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.
"To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them." --- George Mason.
"A free people ought to be armed." (George Washington Jan 14 1790, Boston Independent Chronicle.)
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." (Thomas Jefferson: papers, 334, C.J. Boyd, Ed. 1950).
"In such a world of conflict, a world of victims and executioners, it is the job of thinking people, not to be on the side of the executioners." --- Albert Camus.
"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe." --- (Noah Webster (1787, Pamphlets on the Constitution of the US).
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose people are afraid to trust them with arms." (James Madison: Federalist Paper #46).
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." (Benjamin Franklin: Nov 11 1755, from the Pennsylvania Assembly's reply to the Governor of Pennsylvania.)
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined or determined to commit crimes. Such laws only make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assassins; they serve to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." (Thomas Jefferson: 1764).
"Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense." (John Adams: A defense of the Constitution of the US).
