2nd 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.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights that protects the right of the "People” to keep and bear arms.
It was adopted on December 15, 1791.

Colonial soldiers had just finished fighting a war, for two years against a tyrannical state militia. They knew the time might come again when they would have to defend their freedom so they made the possession of weapons a right that no government or state militia could ever take away.

The burden we carry today, many generations disconnected, is the preservation of not only the Second Amendment but all our rights. We here at KMH Arms are ardent believers in the second amendment; we are neither left nor right, democrat or republican, black nor white ... We are simply Americans and proud of the legacy handed down to us so that we may pass it on to future generations.

That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms...
- Samuel Adams

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.
- Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.
- Richard Henry Lee, 1788

It is every Americans' right and obligation to read and interpret the Constitution for himself.
- Thomas Jefferson

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.
- Thomas Jefferson

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

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
- Thomas Jefferson

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that it has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are of such a nature. Such laws make things 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.
- Cesare Beccaria (often quoted by Thomas Jefferson)
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
- Thomas Jefferson

The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
- Thomas Jefferson

An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.
- Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
- Thomas Jefferson

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
- James Madison

Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins.
- Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti

The second amendment gives the individual citizen a means of protection against the despotism of the state. Look what it refers to: "The security of a free state.” The word "free” should be underlined because that is what they are talking about and that is what the Constitution is about–a free nation and a free people, where the rights of the individual are preeminent. The founding fathers had seen, as the Declaration of Independence tells us, what a despotic government can do to its own people. Indeed, every American should read the Declaration of Independence before he reads the Constitution, and he will see that the Constitution aims at preventing a recurrence of the way George III’s government treated the colonies.
- President Ronald Reagan

A man with a gun is a citizen, a man without a gun is a subject. Our forefathers knew this to be true..... Why do so many of us question their wisdom?
- D. Michael Wiechman, May 14, 1996

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
- William S. Burroughs - Author

And don't believe for a minute the wild-ass lies of [anti-gun/anti-Second Amendment folks'] stoned leaders like Jann Wenner of "Rolling Stoned" magazine. As head honcho of Cease Fire, this goofball blatantly manipulates and controls the words and pages of his powerful publications under the bulletproof umbrella of the First Amendment while he laughs out loud wiping his ass with the Second... Though oft repeated in rags like his, a handgun IS NOT forty-seven times more likely to kill a family member, unless of course, you and the whole tribe are in the crack runnin' trade and/or on parole as a lifestyle. That ramrod figure is as false as Jann's wedding vows. After he left his wife and children to go off into the sunset, ass in hand, with his new boyfriend, he turned up his antigun heat by increasing his hateful editorials and free magazine ad space with outrageous twisted lies about guns and gun owners.
