The following are some of my favorite gun quotes. Some of them show why we need guns. Some show why the Founding Fathers knew we had to have them. Some show why dictators (and idiots in Congress) don’t want you to have any. All of them make me thankful for my Second Amendment rights. If you’re thankful for your Second Amendment rights tweet, stumble, bookmark, and share this list with a friend.
1.”A free people ought to be armed.”
2.”To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
~Richard Henry Lee
3.”The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest possible limits. … and [when] the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”
~St. George Tucker
4.”[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
5.”Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”
