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.

Firearms...liberty teeth

George Washington, the father of our country, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces and first President of our country, said "Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance. They are the peoples' liberty teeth."
To use the word "firearms" as second only in importance to the Constitution was a deliberate meant that just like you can use your hands and legs to defend your God given liberty and life, the firearm is of utmost importance in safeguarding our country and ourselves from threats both from within and outside its borders. The use of the word "teeth" was also used intentionally because as we all know we do have canine teeth. uppers and lowers, and they are used in tearing and ripping not only to eat but in a last case scenario, to inflict injury or kill an enemy, ( I know it sounds barbaric but its true).
It may sound a little strange but when you have nothing left to fight with you use what God gave you to protect yourself and your liberty. No fancy legal talk or semantics here...just common sense. If it were not for firearms we would probably be speaking German or Japanese today or we might not even exist.
The 2nd Amendment is yours, personally, and not the government's to dispense if it wishes.
