The following are the words of some of our Founding Fathers and citizens of that time that we believe deserve to be placed here, for all to reflect on.
“They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Benjamin Franklin 1759
“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”
Patrick Henry 1775
“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
Thomas Jefferson 1776
“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? It is feared, then that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The limited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
Unknown Pennsylvanian 2/20/1778.
