Go to: [url]http://cf.heritage.org/almanac/quotations.cfm[/url] Click on "Select Subject" Select "Arms" Leave the rest alone and click on "Submit" Lots of good quotes on other subjects too. Good site to browse.

From the Founder's Almanac: Recommended Bill of Rights from the Virginia Ratifying Convention June 27, 1778 Topic: Arms That the people have a right to keep and bear arms; that a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defence of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and therefore ought to be avoided, as far as the circumstances and protection of the community will admit; and that, in all cases, the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

Here's another from Founder's Almanac. Gotta love Patrick Henry: Henry, Patrick speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention June 5, 1778 Topic: Arms O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone; and you have no longer an aristocratical, no longer a democratical spirit. [red]Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation, brought about by the punishment of those in power, inflicted by those who had no power at all?[/red]
