"The unarmed man is not just defenseless, he is also contemptible."
"When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."
"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia', the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms', our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
--Senator John F. Kennedy, 1960
"The unarmed man can only flee from evil. And evil is never overcome by fleeing from it."
