Rossi: Our Founding Father’s Brilliance Regarding the 2nd Amendment




By Randy Rossi - 

Naturally the Democrats are using the tragedy of the shooting in Uvalde Texas to attack our 2nd Amendment with the goal of taking your guns away. Let me share some of the brilliance of our Founding Fathers which will remind you of why they gave us the 2nd Amendment. The problem in America is not guns which have always been a critical part of American culture, it is the horrific decline of our culture and the fact that our young people are bombarded by violence and filth on the internet every day. Our Founding Fathers are weeping in Heaven as they watch the decline of the great culture that they left us. These quotes from our Founding Fathers help explain why guns have been a critical part of American culture for well over 250 years and why our Constitution protects our right to have those guns:

George Washington

  • “A free people should be an armed people”
  • “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government”
  • “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s teeth and a keystone under independence”
  • “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restricts evil interference, they deserve a place with all that’s good”
  • “When the government takes away the citizen’s right to bear arms it becomes the citizens duty to take away the government’s right to govern”

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, at a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”
  • “Those that hammer their guns into plows will plow for those that do not”
  • “The beauty of the 2nd Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it away from the people”
  • “Peace is that glorious moment when everybody stands around reloading”

James Madison

  • “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed unlike citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms”

John Adams

  • “Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion… in private self-defense”

George Mason

  • “I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them”

Noah Webster

  • “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in 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 pretense, raised by the United States”
