Give me liberty or give me death!-Patrick Henry

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. - George Washington

Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can. - Samuel Adams

When the American spirit was in its youth, the language of America was different: Liberty, sir, was the primary object. - Patrick Henry
