“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. 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.”
The second amendment to the United States Constitution as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State::
“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.”
The 2nd ammendment is not just for squirrel hunters…it is for us the citizens to organize a defense (a citizen militia) against the government!
