A natural right….

“[It is] a natural Right which the people have reserved to themselves,

confirmed by the [English] Bill of rights, to keep arms for their own defense;

and as Mr. Blackstone observes, it is to be made use of when the sanctions of

Society and law are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression.”
