"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Now. This quote is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson. However, no evidence exists that he ever said or wrote such a thing, and it's very possible someone made this up for political agenda.
