The People Have a Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Virginia Ratifying Convention 1788“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.” —  Recommended Bill of Rights from the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1778

    Demand a Plan,

    For Liberty Sake!
