“It will be an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it” -GEORGE WASHINGTON-

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States-NOAH WEBSTER-

The Constitution shall never be construed…to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms” –SAMUEL ADAMS-

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” –RICHARD HENRY LEE-

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 ruined” –PATRICK HENRY-

Arms discourage and keep the plunderer in awe, they preserve order in the world as well as property…horrid mischief would ensue were the law- abiding be deprived of the use of them” –THOMAS PAINE-

There are more instances of the abridgment of  freedom of the people by silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation’s”JAMES MADISON-

Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God” –BENJAMIN FRANKLIN-

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-

    In 1774, British Brigadier General Lord Hugh Percy, stationed in Boston, commented,What makes an insurrection here always more formidable than in other places is that there is a law of this province which obligates every inhabitant to be furnished with a firelock, bayonet, and a considerable quantity of ammunition“. 

NOTE:    I am sure that this same view, now, because of our Second Amendment, also ‘troubles’  all those ‘progressives’, (democrats) who would like the United Nations (ATT) Arms Trade Treaty to be passed, not only to disarm us, but to strip away our national sovereignty, and to turn us from being citizens into easily controllable ‘subjects’ to push around, good luck.   Americans are not pushed around for very long before they shove back……  http://www.nagr.org/UNTreaty_Pledge1.aspx?pid=4b

One Response to “Studied, Astute, Relevant Observations”

  • Colette says:

    Hi Mark, I thought you might like to read this about disarming the people. “Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jeffersons Commonplace Book 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment by criminologist Cesare Beccaria 1764. George Mason of Virginia; “When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain the British Parliament was advised by an artful man who was governor of Pennsylvania to disarm the people that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them but that they should not do it openly but weaken them and let them sink gradually”. . “They (the militia) consist now of the whole people except a few public officers”. Virginias James Mason. Colette.
    NOTE:
    Thank you Colette, Jefferson was quoting the famous Itialian lawyer Cesare Beccaria as noted above, he well understood the results of disarming the public in the name of ‘safety’ as being a lie that only leads to government CONTROL over us sheep, if they are able to convince us.
    Ben Franklin said if you give up liberty for temporary safety you deserve neither liberty or safety. MS
