Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it. The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits. No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him. I am not a friend to a very energetic government. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
