"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, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment(1764).
To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.
"Let your gun be your constant companion on your walks this gives exercise to the body and independence to the mind no free man shall ever be debarred the use of guns" - Thomas Jefferson.
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for
lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." - Benjamin Franklin 1759
Most re-enactors have three goals:
"To get the details right, have fun, and keep the history alive!"
