great quotes

“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

“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”-Benjamin Franklin

“When firearms go, all goes. We need them every hour.”-George Washington

“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

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government
fears the people, there is liberty. “-Thomas Jefferson

“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.”-Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of
them.”-Thomas Jefferson

“No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.”-Thomas Jefferson

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.
Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise
their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to
dismember or overthrow it.”-Abraham Lincoln

“A government that does not trust it’s law-abiding citizens to keep and bear
arms is itself unworthy of trust.”-James Madison

“Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the
American people’s liberty teeth and the keystone under independence… The rifle
and pistol are equally indispensable… The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere
and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with
all that is good.”-George Washington
