Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... 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. Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764
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 inevitably ruined Patrick Henry
Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master! - Thomas Jefferson
Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. - George Washington
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 own many of the 'teeth' the esteemed Mr. Washington alluded to, and although I possess Class III weapons, there is NO SUBSTITUTE for riflemen.

B.L.O.A.T. = Buy Lots Of Ammo Today AND start putting food away or risk losing your freedom!
It is inexcusable to have less than a month's worth in reserve. Seriously, don't claim you can't afford to buy a 50 lb. bag of rice or beans each month.
Heed the warning of Joseph in the land of Egypt! He accumulated ALL the money, livestock, land and eventually the freedom of everyone in Egypt and handed it over to Pharoah. All because the people had no food.
Everyone EXCEPT the priests that is. They kept their land and positions.
Because they had a food allotment. They remained free, outside of the total control of Pharoah.
