Thomas Jefferson On Gun Control

Yes the writer of the Constitution had quite a bit to say about gun control and the 2nd Amendment. Although the odds are slim to impossible that any Supreme Court Judge will read this blog I hope you spread this quote like wildfire as it clearly states how the 2nd Amendment is to be interpreted.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson

This is not debatable, one of the most, if not the most important Founding Father was against gun control of any kind. It is crystal clear how the founders felt about firearms.

  1. Someone, please, post the qoute by Geroge Washington wherein he says that Independence Day should henceforth be celebrated with the shooting of guns. I celebrated it 7-04-07 practicing for the high-power competitions at the National Matches at Camp Perry and it felt GRRRRRRR-REAT! I know he said it, I just want help finding the source.
