Every Terrible Weapon................

In the Federalist No. 46, James Madison, primary author of the Constitution, assured us that any force of armed agents the federal government might field to enforce any unjust and unconstitutional enactment “would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands,” thanks to “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation.”

A militia limited to little target pistols?

Noah Webster promised that “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”

A people armed with nothing but little squirrel rifles?

Tench Coxe, influential delegate from Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress of 1788-1789, wrote as “A Pennsylvanian”: “The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? . . . Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American. . . . The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

This, my friends is one of the reasons I really like the writings of this man, Vin Suprynowicz.
  

Our Bill of Rights constitutes a cluster of little foxholes of liberty ground into the hard cold face of history by helpless men for a shield against the lash of tyrants. They are the result of distrust of power and distrust of men in power. They are a recognition of Lord Acton's statement of a truth eternal--"power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."R.

Interesting read.  And he's definitely right about one thing and that is, we repeat ourselves constantly.
The same can be said for cancer research.  Like the change of the seasons, you can count on the idiots at the door--neighbors you know--wanting donations for "cancer research".
The fact is, they've already raised so much money for research, they're floating in it.
Guns, unfortunately, are another "money maker".

Which is, in my opinion, exactly why the PUBS and the NRA, among others, want some gun control.
