"Study the Constitution. Let it be preached from the pulpit,
proclaimed in legislatures, and enforced in courts of justice."
- Abraham Lincoln
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. 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
