A Great Quote From Sam Adams


"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress:

   - to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience;

   - or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms;

   - or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them;

   - or to prevent the people from petitioning, in a peaceable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances;

   - or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions."
