According to the men who founded the United States of America, you are the well regulated militia. The whole of the people, not government employees, are the militia and they shall not be disarmed or disbarred of the use of arms.

We have quotes from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and George Mason to name a few. Paul and Jarrad consider the foundation and framing of the Bill of Rights.

We have a new feature for you; Finished Firearms brought to you by Duracoat University. During this week’s segment, Professor Paul explains the origin of the Fire Extinguisher Gun.

“You Are the Well Regulated Militia”

“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…”
– George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776

And the Virginia Declaration of Rights of 1776, written by George Mason, asserted “that a well regulated Militia, composed of the body of the People, trained to Arms, is the proper, natural, and safe Defence of a free State.

“I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.”
– George Mason, Address to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 4, 1788

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
