DHS Echoes The Founders On Defense

0 Shares

Gun grabbers like to ask the question: “Why do you need an ‘assault weapon?’”

As the Department of Homeland Security so aptly put it in its own request for proposal for 7,000 .223 cal. select fire weapons, they are for personal defense.

In Thoughts on Standing Armies, Josiah Quincy Jr. wrote in 1774:

No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defence of the state…. Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen.

Gun grabbers lack the moral authority to determine what weapon a lawful gun owner needs for defense or target shooting or whatever. Only the gun owner can make that decision.
