Founding Father Quotes on the Second Amendment

The second amendment has been receiving quite a bit of press lately. Are the citizens in the United States going to be allowed to continue to bear arms or will more bans be put into practice? We thought you'd enjoy reading some quotes from our founding fathers on this subject.

"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

"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
--Thomas Jefferson

"We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists."
- Patrick Henry
