Americans own a hundred million rifles, just as the founding fathers intended. They saw an armed citizenry as being the best defense against foreign and domestic aggression.
“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
” … to disarm the people – that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.“
– George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380
“[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.”
–James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
Obama, Feinstein and Bloomberg are working tirelessly to undermine the principles which the US was founded on. They are attempting to create an association in the public consciousness connecting a disarmed citizenry with safety. History tells us that such an association is normally a catastrophe.
