Here are some words of wisdom from Thomas Jefferson:
1: "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."
2: "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
3: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
4: "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."
5: "My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
