    "...quemadmodum gladius neminem occidit, occidentis telum est." [...a sword never kills anybody; it's a tool in the killer's hand.]

    -- (Lucius Annaeus) Seneca "the Younger" (ca. 4 BC-65 AD)

    ”You are bound to meet misfortune if you are unarmed because, among other reasons, people despise you….There is simply no comparison between a man who is armed and one who is not. It is unreasonable to expect that an armed man should obey one who is unarmed, or that an unarmed man should remain safe and secure when his servants are armed. In the latter case, there will be suspicion on the one hand and contempt on the other, making cooperation impossible.”

    -- Niccolo Machiavelli

    ”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.”

    -- George Washington

    ”Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”

    -- George Washington

    ”The right of the people to keep and bear…arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country…”

    -- James Madison

    ”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

    ”The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun.”

    -- Patrick Henry

    "Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.'

    -- James Madison, The Federalist Papers

    "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."

    -- Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers

    "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, in "Phila. Independent Gazetteer"

    "As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives [only] 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 to your walks."

    -- Thomas Jefferson

    ”The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world not 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 … the weak will become prey to the strong.”

    -- Thomas Paine

    ”Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined”

    -- Patrick Henry

    ”Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    -- Benjamin Franklin

    Militias, 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, especially when young, how to use them.

    -- Senator Richard Henry Lee, 1788, on "militia" in the 2nd Amendment

    The danger (where there is any) from armed citizens, is only to the *government*, not to *society*; and as long as they have nothing to revenge in the government (which they cannot have while it is in their own hands) there are many advantages in their being accustomed to the use of arms, and no possible disadvantage.

    -- Joel Barlow, "Advice to the Privileged Orders", 1792-93

    [The disarming of citizens] has a double effect, it palsies the hand and brutalizes the mind: a habitual disuse of physical forces totally destroys the moral [force]; and men lose at once the power of protecting themselves, and of discerning the cause of their oppression.

    -- Joel Barlow, "Advice to the Privileged Orders", 1792-93

    An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

    -- Robert A. Heinlein, "Beyond This Horizon", 1942

    ”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… The Second 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.”

    -- John F. Kennedy

    A man with a gun is a citizen. A man without a gun is a subject.

    -- John R. Lott

    ”Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! - I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

    -- Patrick Henry
