    Please list your favorite 2nd Amendment, or gun control related quotes from our founding fathers.

    Also, if you have a citation for your quote from online, please share the link.

    PLEASE, ALL I'M ASKING FOR IS QUOTES.

    Liberals; don't share your opinions on why you think guns are bad. this isn't the time or place. all I've asked for is quotes. there should be no flaming in this thread.

    fellow right-wingers; don't bash the libs.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants, it is it's natural manure. ~Jefferson

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

    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

    I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.-Thomas Jefferson

    Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have ... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.

    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." - Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764. That was 230 years ago. -Thomas Jefferson

    Not sure if it's my favorite but it's a good one.
