Which of these statements sounds like the Framers gave us the right to keep and bear arms so that we could go deer and duck hunting and protect our homes?
Alexander Hamilton: “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”, adding later, “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.”
--Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
“The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation ... (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
--James Madison Federalist, No. 46
“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike especially when young, how to use them.”
--Richard Henry Lee, Senator, First Congress Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republican
George Mason, author of the Virginia Bill of Rights, which inspired our Constitution's Bill of Rights, said, “To disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them,” later asking, “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for few public officials.”
--George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates
