Cowboy Action Shooting
Quotes of the Month
”By calling attention to ‘a well-regulated militia,’ ‘the security of the nation,’ and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy… The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”
— John F. Kennedy
"The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home."
— District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 US Supreme Court decision on the Second Amendment
"I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians."
— George Mason
