• “What, sir, is the use of militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty… Whenever Government means to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” ~Elbridge Gerry, 1789
