GEORGE WASHINGTON Steel-Mounted Saddle Pistols
Marquis de Lafayette, a young French soldier who volunteered to fight for the United States, gave Washington this pair of saddle pistols with barrels made of Damascus steel. Washington reportedly carried these sidearms at Valley Forge, Monmouth, Yorktown and during the Whiskey Rebellion as president. Washington maintained possession of the pistols until his death in 1799. Andrew Jackson owned them for a spell, until bequeathing them back to the Lafayette family.

Jefferson
THOMAS JEFFERSON
One of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Jefferson has many quotes that resonate strongly with the Right to Bear Arms crowd, including, “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. – 1764” Truer words couldn’t have been spoken.
Elenor
ELEANOR ROOSEVELT – S&W .38 Special Revolver

  1. Wasn’t the NRA started by U. S. Grant?

     
    • racefish, sounds good, I looked it up and your kinda close.
      It was started by a couple of Union officers in 1871
      Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

  2. Anyone who is willing to raise up arms to protect his family and country against dictatorial tyrants has demonstrated greatness of spirit!

     
  3. End time, First I’ve ever heard of Myron and so I did a little digging. Seems like a stand up guy so far.
    But what does that have to do with Reagan. It’s well known Reagan started out as a Dem, but that is a lot different then a Commie. Could you source that statement please?
    I’ll drop a snippet of an article here of why Reagan was a Great man.
    Seems him and Myron were on the same page about Communism.
    Instead of which, the Reagan presidency of 1981-89 changed the face of the world. The American-led alliance won the cold war, a potentially even bloodier confrontation than the first world war’s murderous clash of European nationalism and the second world war’s six-year struggle against would-be Superman Hitler and his friends. By defeating communism, Ronald Reagan ended one of history’s most violent centuries and opened the door to the possibility that for at least a few decades ahead war, though it can never be abolished, would be a smaller horror than in the past, and democracy might become available to more of the people who wanted it. In his foreign policy, at any rate, he turned out to be one of the two or three most effective American presidents of the 20th century.
