The right to keep arms means the right of everyone to own and use war-like weapons in a peaceful manner. Congress is forbidden to pass any law infringing the right.
It was thought that without it ambitious men (like Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama and Joe Biden) might, by the aid of the regular army, overthrow the liberties of the people and usurp the powers of government.
We do not want any laws that are going to take away any of our rights.
- Tim Hershman, Porter
