Late Night Nonsense

A. "No freeman 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"; “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. LET THEM TAKE ARMS.” "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." (President Thomas Jefferson)
B.  "The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference---they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.";  "Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth";  "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master"; "Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected"; "A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."; And, as still true,  "The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves"  (President George Washington)
