The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.
Comtemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen and then ask yourself, What should be the reward of such sacrifices... If ye love wealth better than freedom, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands that feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
