__________________ If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
It's such a simple concept. God gave us the right TO NOT BE KILLED and to do what we think is necessary to accomplish that goal. The government did NOT give us that right and therefore cannot take it away.

"There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword; the other is by debt." John Adams
