The entire Second Amendment:
“A well regulated Militia, being NECESSARY to the SECURITY of a FREE State, The Right of THE PEOPLE to KEEP and BEAR ARMS, shall NOT be infringed.”

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property. Gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens, because while the law abiding citizens turn in their guns, the criminals do not, they still possess their guns.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN…SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT TO USE THE RIFLE THEY ARE ISSUED. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
QUOTES from The Founding Fathers on the Second Amendment:
Fisher Ames, Massachusetts Representative wrote:
“The RIGHTS of conscience, of BEARING ARMS, of CHANGING THE GOVERNMENT, are declared to be INHERENT IN THE PEOPLE.”
Tenche Coxe wrote in his “Remarks on The First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution”, which appeared in the Philadelphia Gazette in June 1789:
“THE PEOPLE are CONFIRMED by the next article in THEIR RIGHT to KEEP and BEAR THEIR PRIVATE ARMS.”
Joseph Story, 1833 U.S. Supreme Court Justice wrote:
“The RIGHT of a CITIZEN to KEEP and BEAR ARMS has JUSTLY been considered the palladium of The Liberties of The Republic, since it offers a STRONG MORAL CHECK AGAINST USURPATION and ARBITRARY POWER of rulers, and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, ENABLE THE PEOPLE to RESIST and TRIUMPH OVER them!”
James Madison’s ORIGINAL draft of The Second Amendment:
“THE RIGHT of THE PEOPLE to KEEP and BEAR ARMS shall NOT be infringed; a WELL ARMED and WELL REGULATED Militia being THE BEST SECURITY of a FREE Country.”
George Mason, “Father of The Bill of Rights”, wrote:
“WHAT is The Militia? It is THE WHOLE PEOPLE! To disarm THE PEOPLE is the best and most effectual way to ENSLAVE THEM!”
Thomas Jefferson’s commonplace book, 1774-1776, QUOTING from “On Crimes and Punishment” (1764) by CRIMINOLOGIST Cesare Beccaria:
“Laws that FORBID the CARRYING of ARMS…disarm ONLY those who are NEITHER inclined NOR determined to commit crimes…such laws make it 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.”
If our Founding Fathers were present today they’d IMMEDIATELY ABOLISH the some 1,700 ANTI-2nd Amendment/ANTI-gun laws on the books!
In The Entire History of The World a Gun Has NEVER Killed Anyone
The title is NOT hyperbole. NO. Nor is it an exaggeration. It is plain, simple FACT.
Fill an entire 20,000 seat arena with every type of gun imaginable. FULLY Loaded. You can then have 5 year old kids file by, 87 year olds go through the entire arena. 17 year olds 24 year olds. Not one person will even be hurt, let alone killed by that vast arsenal of weaponry. Not ONE gun- Derringer or AK-47- will so much as hurt anyone.
Now take the same vast array of people of all ages by the MOST POWERFUL Hydrogen Bomb. They can stare at it for hours. The world could pass by that most dangerous bomb…and not one person EVER get so much as hurt.
The Point? What’s lost on Liberals is that it is NOT the weapon that commits a crime. It’s the Criminal that commits the crime. I could walk down the the middle of a crowded playground with a flame-thrower. NO ONE will get hurt at all unless I use it, and then ONLY IF I use it on a person. See the difference?
Why these extreme examples? Because the point MUST be made that from Jesse James to Al Capone, to Machine-Gun Kelly to The Son of Sam, and to wack-job who thought he was “The Joker”. It was NOT the gun that committed a heinous crime. It was the person.
