"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

Quoting Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black who was appointed by
FDR and was a liberal: "There are absolutes in our Bill of Rights.
And they were put there on purpose by men who knew what words meant and meant
their prohibitions to be absolute."
The Founders were quite clear on their views regarding firearms. In fact, earlier proposed language of the Second Amendment read as such: "And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. - Samuel Adams (February 6, 1788)

After all you depend on the person next to you.)

BORDER ISSUES: MEXICO
"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
