Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

The Swiss are at once the best armed and the freest people in the world.
When did We the People ever vote to be ruled? Controlled? Herded? Has this nation come full circle, only to be ruled by another King George? But much has changed since 1776 and American guts and glory may already have been spent. America won its independence from King George (the one on the other side of the ocean) when local leaders joined the citizenry to form militias and fight for freedom. How can America possibly be taken, again, from King George (the one on this side of the ocean)? We are not to form local militias and our neighbors in uniform are all the king's men who have been blinded until they no longer recognize a royal imposter; an unconstitutional acting one, at that.Author: Linda Schrock Taylor, Source: http://www.lewrockwell.com/taylor/taylor133.html
