Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

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.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE. (Federalist Papers, No. 46, p.294; emphasis added.)

In these troubled political and economic times please read:

The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World by W. Cleon Skousen of the National Center for Constitutional Studies.

You can Google it and probably find many sources where it can be purchased. It will open your eyes, mind and heart. They may even have it in the local library or can get it for you on loan from a neighboring library.

Thanks for the recommendation. This book is available through the Woodstock (Ill.) Public Library and the Northern Illinois inter-library loan system.

Thanks for the information Gus; if Woodstock Public Library has it or can get it probably any library in the State can get it for people who want to be informed on how the US of America came to be. It is a great history and is not revisionist history like so many books and textbooks are today. Learn the truth not what the media wants you to think about the US of America.
