‘Tis a common observation here that our cause is the cause of all mankind, and that we are fighting for their liberty in defending our own.
[Although our fight for the right to keep and bear arms is just a small part of the total “liberty package” it is the essential liberty that enables all the others to be realized and to be held. For that reason our fight is like that of Franklin’s day. It is a fight for the liberty of all mankind. Our cause is just and our cause is not just for the residents of D.C., Chicago, or New York. It is for the future of mankind. Will mankind be forever in fear of the next tyrant or thug or will the individual be able to defend themselves and their community against perpetual servitude?–Joe]
