"that they have a right, of which no human law can deprive them"
"We once recommended the formation of a civic guard, of the most respectable of our citizens, to prevent anticipated collisions. We have advised all Conservatives to arm and organize for self defence. We have advised them that the law forbidding the carrying of weapons is null and void, and its operation partial and unjust; and that they have a right, of which no human law can deprive them, to disobey it."--Memphis Daily Appeal, August 12, 1868, Vol. XVIII.-No. 332. Pg. 2.
