"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered,
as the palladium of the liberties of the republic;
since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers;
and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance,
enable the people to resist and triumph over them."
—Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution (1833)
