    Armed citizens necessary?

    Don't know if anyone has read these. What do you think? I think the historical connotations are coming back to haunt us.

    George Santayana:
    Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it

    Of Arms and the Law: About Us

    ARMED CITIZENS, CITIZEN ARMIES: TOWARD A JURISPRUDENCE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

    The Second Amendment and the Historiography of the Bill of Rights

    George Wilhelm Hegel:
    What experience and history teach is this -- that people and governments never have learned anything from history, or acted on principles.

    Adrienne Rich:
    False history gets made all day, any day,
    the truth of the new is never on the news

    George Bernard Shaw:
    We learn from history that we learn nothing from history

    That's why we have 2A. What good is it to have a bill or rights without also having the tools necessary to protect it, whether it's against a mugger or the government?
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
