John F Kennedy - On the Right to Bear Arms
By JW Ross
"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. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the 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."
Sen. John F. Kennedy's statement, Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, April 1960, p. 4 (1960)

"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul
