Quote from George Washington on Firearms

Posted on: January 17, 2013

What is interesting about the enclosed quote from George Washington on the subject of arms or firearms is that he had the foresight to add the phrase “sufficient arms and ammunition,” which in my opinion goes to the subject of the types of magazines many would like to see outlawed. He also had the sense to include the phrase “which would include their own government.”

Here is the quote:

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. — George Washington
