"...The Constitution declares that every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms...."
"...The Constitution declares that every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms. Not only is Lincoln guilty of these clear violations of the Constitution which he has sworn to support with an oath that is registered in high Heaven, but a Colonel of his declared the act of the Missouri Legislature, arming her own citizens, an unlawful one! What have escaped? If these things be done in the green tree, what in the dry?"--A.H. Stephens, Vice-President of the Confederate States speech in Atlanta, Ga., May 23, 1861. [Nashville Union and American, Nashville, Tenn., Tuesday, May 28, 1861. Vol. XXVI. Number 50 Pg. 2] (Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, served as a U.S. Representative from Georgia, (before and after the Civil War). He was also Vice President of the Confederate States of America, and the 50th Governor of Georgia from 1882 until his death in 1883).
