    The man used poor judgement bringing any gun to a place where
    “govermment officials” are making appearances. Though the man
    was clearly within his rights, he was taking his own safty into
    jeopardy, judging from the lack of good sence the Obama adminis-
    tration has used since taking office on every issue thus far.
    The entire content of Obama’s so called health care plan is
    designed to take away all of our rights and put him “in charge”
    as our smiling dictator.

    • Vic Bailey

      Do you have any idea how many crooked cops carry guns? You need to check it out.

    • http://MerchantCircle.singleparentsprotectingchildren.com Sharon Taylor

      I think, as Ron Paul stated, that this man was attempting to make a point. That we have the right to bear arms. Look into your ‘true’ history books and you will likely find that a society which has that right is a much more peaceful society…as opposed to a society in which all the bad guys only carry the arms. They are going to get them illegally, whether we do or not. I would much rather be able to protect myself if someone came at me with a weapon. Carrying a weapon, whether it is a tazer, a gun, a knife, whatever, will be a deterrent to a criminal taking action against my person. We are not the criminals, they are. It is time we get back to the RIGHT side of things here in America. The right to bear arms is a necessary freedom we dare not give up. Thanks for listening.

  • Carolyn

    I agree with Ron Paul. Also we are allowing ourselves to be too intimidated by Govt. Excercising our Rights should be shown more by the citizens instead of rolling over and playing dead.
    Our Rights and the Constitution are violated everyday and we the people need to demand some accountability or throw the rascals out. Better yet, they should be jail for the treasonous act they commit.

    • gigi

      I agree with you Carolyn.

      • Vic Bailey

        The reason you don’t see any guns in Washington D.C. is most Senators and Congressmen are felons. That’s why they don’t want anybody else to cary weapons. Just like Ted Kennedy waa a murderer, and a drunk, I wouldn’t feel safe with him with a car, much less, him with a weapon.

        • Scott Brown

          Excellent point, Vic. I lived and worked for decades in Taxachusetts. Ted Kennedy’s popularity rested solely on his name, a vicarious homage to JFK and RFK, not Teddy’s deeds. I doubt many in that once great Commonwealth would allow their daughters to get into a car with him. I never met him, but there was a bar I’d occasionally go to in Boston’s North End that he frequented. People I knew described how Teddy would spend long afternoons there, drunk as a lord on the public’s time and dime. One year, when I was working two jobs and being taxed up the wazoo, I recall reading an article which mentioned how much he’d paid in income taxes: about $750. He was hardly what you’d call a fine figure of a man, but the moment I learned of his death I shut the TV off for several days, knowing what to expect.

          I had a concealed/carry permit in Massachusetts back then, and you had to sit on the right hand of God to get one. I doubt even that would be possible today. I now carry concealed in NM, five contiguous states (including TX), and 15 other states in the US reciprocally recognizing a NM CCW permit. Were I to attend a public political event in any of these 21 states I would be carrying concealed (as would many others by habit) and would not end up on the news. But I fully respect anyone who openly carries, and his/her right to do so for any reason.

          I believe most people who oppose citizen carrying of firearms have watched too many shoot’em ups on TV, where the rule is that once a weapon is introduced into the storyline, it must be used. That does not happen in real life. In real life, for every case in which a weapon is used in a crime, there are far many more in which a gun, in the hands (or even belt) of a private citizen, has prevented one. I’ve been involved in several, probably because I’m old and been many places, done many things. Many of these attempted crime events would never have occurred had all parties involved known that ALL other parties involved were potentially capable of calling a permanent time-out.

          Two events at which nobody tries to rob or kill anyone: A policeman’s convention; or a gun show.

          • Philip, from Oregon

            Scott, I agree with you whole heartedly. It is time to exercise our rights rather it be our right to free speech or the right to keep and bear arms or any other rights given to us by the constitution and God. The people that want any of these right taken away or limited either don’t realize what kind of state our country is in or don’t care or are screaming liberals that think the government will take care of us, which will not happen. I carry every where I go and will not stop any time soon, so you and any one with the same feelings are right in their beliefs, keep on keeping on, and we will support you.

    • http://MerchantCircle.singleparentsprotectingchildren.com Sharon Taylor

      Thank you, Carolyn, for your sincere comments. I appreciate what you said about the Constitution. This Congress and President have broken laws of this country set by our Constitution. They are attempting to CHANGE our Constitution to favor their own agenda. He is not my President, anyway. He is not an American citizen; therefore, why would he want to support the Constitution of the United States of America? It will all come out before too long and we had better be ready to get rid of all of them…or, as you say, put them all in jail. They are breaking laws. Thanks for listening.

    • http://www.tnph.org Rev Homer

      I fail to understand the logic that law abiding citizens need to leave their constitutional rights at home just because a gov. official is in town. It is really the comments of commentators like Mr. Ed that amaze me. He uses the example of a prisoner in a Gov. run court room where a prisoner takes the gun off of a deputy. If his logic was correct it shows all the more reason why law abiding citizens should be allowed to exercise their 2nd amendment right to KEEP and BEAR ARMS regardless of the location or event. The so-called educated librals are just really losing it. They fail to realize that if they keep chipping away at the US Constitution it will eventually come back to bite them in the butt. They too will end up on the cutting block soon.

  • DaveH

    I would much rather a gun-toter carried it concealed but most states have outlawed that (I think unconstitutionally). Another point I would like to make is that prior to barbecuing conservatives and gun-lovers there should be a thorough investigation into that man’s political past and present. As far as we know he may have been an Obama supporter who was trying to undermine gun-ownership.
    Also, how come that makes people so uncomfortable when in fact many government officials have used guns for deadly and illegal purposes, yet most of us have no problem with them carrying weapons?

    • Scott Brown

      Nicely said, friend. However I’ve a terminology issue which is not minor…you stopped just short of “gun-nuts.” I know you didn’t say it.

      “Gun-toter,” “Gun-lovers,” DaveH? How about chain saw, coffee grinder, and shoe-lovers? Car-or-truck lovers and house-lovers? Clothes-lovers? Cell-phone lovers? What is the difference between civilian-protection-lovers and shopping-lovers?

      I resist the terms “toters” and “lovers” applied to our relationships to inanimate everyday objects, unless speaking of a fetish (not that there’s necessarily anything wrong with a fetish, who can honestly deny having a few?, I tend toward skinny freedom-loving brunettes). Is one a spoon or fork lover? Have you taken the survey? Else you’re not qualified to vote on the spork issue (well, they tossed in the soupspoon/spatula issues)…that sort of thing.

      The fact that I’ve carried personal protection (once manufactured them in less lethal form) for years without harming innocents (have, though, successfully threatened illegal aggressors) signifies nothing (except it calms me to know I can deal with bad shit). I, anyone, could snap at any moment.

      I’ve had a driver’s license for longer, without running anyone over (could snap in a second and drive up the sidewalk of a crowded strip mall–so may you; they can outlaw the heck out of it, won’t stop you).

      Gun permits are a non-issue. Gun ownership is a non-issue being made into a politically BIG ISSUE. Cars kill people, daily. Car-lovers kill people. Every day, in massive numbers. Let us profile “lovers” of cars, shall we? But, you know this.

      I don’t go to bed caressing a gun, I simply put a loaded weapon and cell-phone within reach when I go to bed. I don’t love them any more than I do an earmarked novel or the nightlight I read myself to sleep by, nor my puffed pillow (okay, love my pillow better, I’m a “pillow-lover”).

      I think we have to stop with the “gun-lover” mentality. There are “shoe-lover” weirdos out there, too (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just consider it…odd). We needn’t borrow anti-gun phraseology.

      I don’t consider gun owners weirdos, just prepared folks, like those with extra batteries and water at home, spare tires and sweaters in the car. In case help doesn’t arrive for awhile. They’re not mentally ill. Certainly not political fodder.

      If I’ve an objection to your comment, DaveH, I don’t think it’s to your intent, rather your verbiage. Sure, some friends and acquaintances think me odd for owning and carrying weaponry (even in NM it’s a two-day weekend class to do so…who’s got time and money?). They wonder if I’m one of those “gun-lovers” of which you speak. Maybe. But I object to the perpetuation of the imagery.

      I shop in the same places as do you and they (and was called to jury duty for a man accused of holding up a Walmart with a weapon–you’ve got to be kidding, managed to recuse myself).

      I’d prefer to see everyone carrying a lethal weapon by law, rather than wait around for the constabulary to sort things out with chalk lines. Or wait for the Great American Invasion (which could never happen if personal weapons were standard equipment for everyone over the age of 18 or so). Perhaps that’s just me.

      That is my position.

    • Jessica

      I’m quite happy to live in Florida where I could get a conceal permit. I don’t own a gun, but I could get a conceal permit and own a gun if I chose. In any case, I agree with Ron Paul that he did an excellent job making his point, and I’m quite sure that, had anyone tried to harm the President, that gun-toting “nutcase” as the left would like to make him out to be, would probably be the first person (other than, hopefully, secret service) to use his gun to defend the President.

  • Tom Harris

    UN-concealed guns should be allowed in all 50 states–I see norhinf wrong with the man who wore an loaded automatic pistol to an Obama Rally (Town Hall Meeting)—He may have been an Obama supporter who disagrees with Obama’s stand on guns

  • Ray B

    Ed says that someone could have taken that gun and gone crazy with it. This goes to show the insanity of Ed. Someone who would do something like that would have brought their own. What a reach, sorry ed your grabbing at air. No wonder no one watches your show. Your nearly as bad as olberman.

  • Harold

    Better hang onto your guns , when this government pursues more of the 30′s takeover like Nazi Germany, you will probably need them. Why else would a ‘civilian force’ be proposed, (like the brown shirts I presume.) Wake up America before its too late. We have a wannabe dictator and his minions in office.

    • DaveH

      Harold,
      I agree. Civilian forces (paid by the Federal Government) would be extremely dangerous to our freedom. Imagine a force beholden to no one but the government. If we think local police can be rude and brutal, what is it going to be like to have police employed by the distant Federal Government?

      • Scott Brown

        Hello again, DaveH. As usual, you are succinct (something I am not), and you put your finger right on the nerve.

        Here’s the future problem as I see it.

        You put millions of people, especially young people, out of work by turning the economy to Jello Pudding. Then you offer them government jobs, doing gummint bidding. You make it clear that their and their family’s livelihoods depend on following instructions to the letter. You give them uniforms and jingoistic mantras. Then you give them weapons and you turn them loose on their neighbors.

        What do we THINK is likely to happen? (Insanity is repeating history and expecting a new result.)

        Well, things are different now. They’ll have green shirts. They’ll use computers. They’ll be concerned with global, rather than merely national problems. Yadda yadda.

        Key, above, is the word “THINK.” If well-educated German kids of the 1930s could not see their way past the manipulation, what are the youth of today going to do? It will be presented to them as a grand video game (like the super-modern tanks in the first Gulf War were presented as–when our kids got out of their computer machines and saw the results of their phosphordot manipulation on actual human beings, they threw up).

        If and when they wake up, it will be far too late for them to undo what they’ve done.

    • http://MerchantCircle.singleparentsprotectingchildren.com Sharon Taylor

      Good comments, Harold. I appreciate someone else sees this about Obama and his Congress of agenda cronies. We all need to continue the RHETORIC in force for the TRUTH about CHANGE. ObamaCHANGE is not the CHANGE we need. We need to PURGE the White House of all of them. They are digging their own graves in many ways. Just watch them. In the meantime, keep the comments coming. I love it! Thanks for listening.

  • Cathy

    Amazing that people are so against guns. Liberals just don’t get it. If you take the guns away, the BAD people will still have them. This has been proven repeatedly…The UK banned guns in 1998, and their crime rate has gone up 340 percent! Now Australian politicians are scratching their heads wondering why the crime rate has skyrocketed after they banned guns. DUH…What a bunch of idiots!

    • DaveH

      Cathy,
      I visited a couple of web sites both of which said that the crime rate had already been rising at the same rate before the gun laws were passed. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it!
      If that’s the case then at the very least the gun laws were ineffective.

  • http://waynefina@embarqmail.com wayne allen

    I agree with Ron Paul we as american have the right to bear weapons. I was in the US Army for over 8 years,and have had guns in my home for over 30 years and have ever fired most of them ever. It’s not gunowners but crimals that shoot and kill with them. I will never support any political movement to have our right to bear guns taken away, as President Oboma wants and shows it with most of the people and czars he has put in his office.

    • Scott Brown

      Wayne, I suggest you bury some of them. When they show up at your door, tell them the dog ate them. When they say where is the dog, say you buried it. When they ask where, reveal the name of your state.

  • Rivka

    I equate this exercise by the legal, non-concealed, firearmed toting citizen on the same level as those citizens who refuse to be illegally detained and searched when stopped at suspicion-less checkpoints, for merely traveling on the highways and byways of this nation. There has been, over the years, a continous
    ‘conditioning” of the people to relinquish their Constitutional Rights. Cherishing the Constitution is not for the “in crowd” [elite]who hold a more global view. The Constitution is under attack. Ed is mere minion who apparently has no quams questioning the relivance of the 2nd Amendment, specifically when it comes to sidearms/handguns use by a law abiding citizen of this land.

    • DaveH

      Yep, we need to get the flock out of the United Nations before they succeed in taking away what freedom we have left.

  • John C. Davidson

    I noted the moderator couldn’t wait to end that discussion stammering in the process.

  • Vic Bailey

    What is wrong with these people that want to take our gun rights,and all our rights, what about Kent University, Wayco Texas, Ruby Ridge when the government shot first and innocent people were killed? Yet it is wrong for peaceful law abiding citizens to carry firearms to protect oneself. Like everything the government touches turns to CRAP.
    It takes people to come together and protect one another because by the time the cops get to your house they will pick up your dead family and haul you off, while they let another convict out to hurt someone else.
    Most of these government agencies are cowards, they can only shoot the innocent, they can’t stand toe to toe with a criminal and shoot accurate. I have seen them empty guns and never hit anything, but they can hit an unarmed person. Most of these cops have never been in the armed services and if not they shouldn’t carry a gun.
    I am so tired of this crap that if a cop gets shot, they’re special, wrong, it’s their job, shut up and do your job, if you don’t like it, QUIT. They don’t think our military is special, when a military person gets killed, I don’t see anybody jumping on the band wagon to track down their killers. Am I the only person that sees the difference here? When are we going to wake up and protect ourselves and run these criminals out of the country? Starting with the crooked judges and lawyers that set them free. We can STOP the crime but we have to stick together, they do. I’d like to see it safe enough for our children to walk home from school, wouldn’t you?
    The reason the death sentance doesn’t work is because it’s NOT ENFORCED. Back in the 30′s when you got a death sentance it was carried out in 2 years or less, man and women. Now people are on death row for as long as 30 years, DAAA!!!! All the while the lawyers and judges make money. Wouldn’t say our judical system is broken? Are we paying our judges to save the criminal?

    • DaveH

      Vic,
      It’s not broken for the recipients of the dog and pony shows. The judges, lawyers, jailers, and media all love stretching those trials out ad infinitum. Can you imagine how many government workers would be out of jobs if we had speedy trials like the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution proposes?

  • DaveH

    In Phoenix, Arizona, there was a man carrying a pistol and an assault-rifle outside the Convention Center where Obama was speaking. The man was black. I know, here come the accusations of ‘racist’. My point is that over 90% of the black voting population voted for Obama. And yet none of the articles I have read so far has mentioned the possibility that the man was an Obama supporter.
    An assault-rifle? Come on, I doubt seriously that anyone who truly loves our gun rights would be so stupid as to carry a rifle in these tender times to the location of a presidential speech. And anybody who reads a little knows that Obama is anti-gun. Gee, duh, his people wouldn’t stoop to such a dirty trick, would they?

  • Ron

    It is funny how television host will make a mountain out of a moel hill just to get ratings. Apparently the man has never lived in Texas. People in Texas carry guns legaly to work and about their daily lives everyday.
    Here in Texas it is a way of life. Our government left wing liberals are just a bunch of idiots and care about one thing only. POWER CONTROL FREAKS. They don’t want anyone else to live happily and free. America is in trouble and the Liberals are doing all they can to tear her apart.

    • JoAnn

      Hey Ron, I used to carry a gun to work before it was legal, I worked at a bank in Texas, and If we were going to get robbed, and shot, I wanted them to at least know I would fight back, and I am still fighting back, thank God, Texas hasn’t lost its mind and still stands for individual freedoms, other states have taken away and just have the sheep left!

    mr paul i live in meas az the gun thing is nothing compared to what this administration is planing for the country. the court thing that you mentioned was a man in court with huge physicality no cuffs and a brainless female cop standing next to him with a loaded gun and the man was known to be very dangerous, duh. mr paul you sound like my congress man and my senators they are politic eunuchs there names are mccain, kyle,and flake. if the republic is to survive we nead to all brave.

    Mr. Jim Watson, Were you educated in government schools in Arizona? If not, where specifically did you attend school?

    • Scott Brown

      Nicely understated, Jenn.

      I, too, fail to get it when a person computer literate enough to not only find the ON switch, but to find his way into this discussion, cannot spell his home city’s name (I’m guessing Mesa, AZ, where my mom lives–there is no “meas az”). Snail mail must be very, very difficult for our Mr. Watson. Curiously he can spell and correctly use the term “eunuch” but can’t spell “political.” Curiouser and curiouser.

      My first thought: “Elementary, my dear Watson!”

      Not the issue at hand, but thanks for playing, troll. I mean the schooling level to which you must needs hasten back.

      Hurry now! Hurry or you’ll be left behind!

      Or, did I miss something?

      • 1LTLos

        Yes you miss the fact that you are a typical, fault finding, immature bone-head – and you suck at Geography. The man made his point-(which also went over your head)-in spite of committing the liberal high crime of misspelling MESA, ARIZONA.
        But of course, you erroneously looked at the map of Africa only to find Mombasa,Kenya and not Mesa as you expected. Nope, Mombasa is not in the USA after all, is it?

  • Tanya Peterson

    Amendment II

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    The above is Amendment II of the Constitution Bill of rights. It says you have the right to keep and bear arms. It doesn’t say you have the right to carry it everywhere you go, and it doesn’t say what kind of arms.
    If you want to go back to how the nation was when the Costitution was written then you have to assume that our founding fathers were taking about muskets and knives and swords. At that time they had no idea the kinds of weopons that would come to be or the accuracy of those weapons.

    It amazes me how paranoid you all are. The guy that really wanted to be a dictator just left office. His name is Dick Cheney. Now that guy was and is scary.

    • 1LTLos

      To Tonya Peterson.
      A musket as you describe, wielded by a competent rifleman or heavens, a riflewoman, could be loaded and fired about 10 to 12 times in a minute. The bore caliber was about equal to .50 or .60 caliber and as a rule would remove a mans –or womans arm or lower leg upon impact. Todays weaponry sold for defense are to help to disable and certainly stop a person from completing his crime. A lousy 9mm or 32 can cause damages but stop and drop a would be successful criminal. Do some research-the two major authors of the 2nd Amendment were George Washington and Tom Jefferson. Washington was no stranger to tyrannical oppression or war.
      I have a hell of alot more fear of a fraud, usurper pseudo-president who has unlawfully installed an additional 4th level of government within 180 days of his being in office! Any delusions you hold regarding Cheney are pale in comparison to this overtly criminal little shit who acts tough in the WH. Your boy is prison bound sister time you wake up socialist. And stop canceling out my vote! Of all persons feared, I fear the uninformed, immature, emotional nimrod voter!

    Several thoughts on this aganda one nobody should carry a gun in an are the President is going to be in out of resoec for the fact that he might b shoot by some body. I fully support our right to cary i think we should have ooen and conceled carry this is just good snse I think any time we show up at a goverment bulding we should be able to check our gun and get it back when leaving. I think the guy showing up with guns ( both men ) was disrespectfull to the safty of the president. Remember he is our president and it dosent matter weither you voted for him or not untill he is legaly voted out of office or legaly impeached. support America First and our Troups.

    • Scott Brown

      An amazingly warmish issue for one or more deluded trolls writing under many names. We could have fun with this, attacking back, discussing their amazingly (inconsistently and absurdly so) bad grammar. That would be a waste of time.

      Let us henceforth ignore them, don’t discuss. It comes down to whether we, in an armed stand-off situation, will relinquish our self protection devices to those threatening us, in return for their protection. (For the non-Holmesians here, means give up yer guns, folks, they’ll ensure the peace and your protection.)

      Skin that and I’ll get you another one.

    • 1LTLos

      More accurately say Americorps – where these armed hoods stem from. You recall our fearful leaders ‘civilian defense force?’ You just identified where it will be coming from. Chicago is a hoodlum and crime oriented town. Obumster is hooked into and a part of that. Time to stop reading about and blogging about gunnz and go buy a couple & ammo. We will all need firearms before very long.

    • Stassi Parker

      Where and when was this?

  • Freedom

    I can bet that if someone had shot at the president, or anyone else, that the man with the gun would definitely protect the good guy. Guns help more than they hinder. If a bad guy thinks you may have a weapon, they are not going to attack you. If someone went there with the intent to cause harm to Mr Obama, or anyone else and saw that gun, they would of had 2nd thoughts. Guns are good.

  • John Eggers

    I get so tired of the hypocrasy that some in the media, government, and other political figures exhibit whey they say we are a nation of laws. It seems to me that they only mean it if the law is one they approve of. Illegal immigration is the the biggest example I can think of. This man was doing nothing illegal – thus leave him alone. End of story.

  • 1LTLos

    Bullshit! Common sense will tell you that an individual properly and safely carrying a holstered sidearm is simply doing his moral and civil duty – It is the first president who teamed up with Thomas Jefferson to author the Second Amendment. Do some research- you sound like a giddy immature woman flapping at the mouth. You mention “common sense?” Th man has had right to own and carry a firearm from the day of his birth. Let me offend you by asking, what type of “sense” is one exercising in their frequent and illegal efforts to disarm this man – and you oh great hunter? Nonsense or treasonous or seditious? I’ll bet its one of the three! Finally, where do you see any reason why Obumster deserves any credit whatsoever with regard to his remaining calm about the matter? That’s a stupid notion to attribute to a man who maintains an avowed anti-second amendment stance and is a overt communalist and practicing Marxist! I am generally not this mean, but my country is in trouble-this prick obumster is the root cause. I credit him with nothing beyond grand deception – he is not president and born in Mombassa Kenya. The only people sick enough to wield and fire a gun at or near a president were deranged loony Liberals like Squeeky Fromm. More guns at Obumster rallys are necessary. He just might fess up and save our nation a lot of grief.

  • Herman King

    It would have been interesting to see what happened if the security guards had tried to take the man’s gun away from him.

  • http://Personallibertysdigest Donna

    This is the second time I’ve seen something about the president being born in Kenya. I thought that anyone who is born to an american citizen,no mater where in this world they were born, they were an American citizen. Am I wrong in this? Did his mother relinquish her citizenship?

    • dell

      you have to be a natural born citizen to president. another words if you were not born here you can not become president.

        You might want to research that a little – there are exceptions to the rule.

    Donna ,you have to be born on USA Soil in order to be a U S citizen that why the Ilegal immigrants have been reproducting like rats here.

    I have one question “Why did they not show the black man carring a pistol and a M-16 at the same event”????????????????????

    Well I do not know what the person or persons were trying to prove but
    I know this, people who are making a big thing of it are only looking on
    the bad side of the coin. What if it was for his defense or self defense
    for that matter it’s been said some long time ago guns don’t kill people
    people do. In my opinion it showed courage, responsibility,and self
    control. People should not sell the CONSTITUTION short. They should know
    it. Listen to RON PAUL. Lets face it, those who cant trust others is
    because they have a problem trusting them self, money, women, boos ect.

    And that’s all I got to say about that………Andy

    Funny how the journalist wanted to turn it into a problem.

    The left progressives and left journalists want to take our guns away. BEWARE! They will slant any story to help remove guns from citizens.

    ” … to disarm the people – that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
    – George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380

    OR would you prefer to be a subject instead of a citizen?

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”
    – Adolph Hitler, Hitler’s Secret Conversations 403 (Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens trans., 1961)

    “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356

    * “No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
    — Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers, 334,[C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950]

    * “The right of the people to keep and bear … arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country …”
    — James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789

    * “What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”

    — Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment, I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789

    * “Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”
    — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836

    * “The great object is, that every man be armed … Every one who is able may have a gun.”
    — Patrick Henry, Elliot, p.3:386

    * “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 …”
    — Patrick Henry, Elliot p. 3:50-53, in Virginia Ratifying Convention demanding a guarantee of the right to bear arms

    * “The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.”
    — Zacharia Johnson, delegate to Virginia Ratifying Convention, Elliot, 3:645-6

    * “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms … The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible.”
    — Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959

    A site you should review. This man was reported to be a white man carrying a gun to townhall meeting. Turns out the man was black.

    Shame on you Bob Livingston trying to catch Ron Paul “in his guile.” Ron Paul is an innocent who plays no games and you tried to make him say that which he knows darn good and well NOT to say. You pseuco-conservatives cannot pull the wool over the eyes of true American patriots who KNOW what they are about.
