Listen to the Preview of “Militias Are Good & They’re Good For You Too” download, your front row seat to the events that led to the need for and passage of the Second Amendment as they’ve NEVER been told before
Product Description – The latest in our Project ’76 collection is the must listen to, 2nd Amendment hit of the millennia. Writer/Director/Narrator Mike Church takes you on an exciting, audio journey back to 1788 to hear the great Patrick Henry launch his opposition to ratifying the U.S. Constitution and his primary concern for doing so was… he feared the new government would abolish the militias and then the right to bear arms outside of a standing army.
Patrick Henry “My great objection to this government is, that it does not leave us the means of defending our rights, or of waging war against tyrants. It is urged by some gentlemen, that this new plan will bring us an acquisition of strength — an army, and the militia of the states.” Henry continued “This is an idea extremely ridiculous: gentlemen cannot possibly be serious!
This acquisition will trample on our fallen liberty. Let my beloved Americans guard against that fatal lethargy that has pervaded the universe. Have we the means of resisting disciplined armies, when our only defence, the militia, is put into the hands of Congress?”
Note that Henry viewed the existence of a State’s militia and the danger of a standing army as the MOST dangerous threats to the public safety and liberty.
