    While we all know what the Founders intended

    It is always good to have a quote that was used to help develop who we are as a people. I got this from Patriot's daily quote http://patriotpost.us/subscribe/

    "[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man,- who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia."-- George Mason (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,14 June 1778)Reference: The Debates of the Several State..., Elliot, vol. 3(380)
    "[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
    They are left in full possession of them."

    Zacharia Johnson (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,25 June 1778)"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." ~Alexander Hamilton
