Quotes from Skip Coryell:
“My question to everyone reading this article is this: For you, as an individual, when do you draw your saber? When do you say ‘Yes, I am willing to rise up and overthrow an oppressive, totalitarian government?’ Is it when the government takes away your private business? Is it when the government rigs elections? Is it when the government imposes martial law? Is it when the government takes away your firearms? ... When the government ignores the First Amendment, it is time to rattle the Second Amendment sabers. It’s all about accountability. So long as our elected officials believe we will rise up and overthrow them under certain conditions, then they will not allow those conditions to occur. Their jobs and their very lives depend on it.”

“The First Amendment seems to be faltering right now. If this were a baseball game, [it would be] First Amendment at bat with two strikes on him, Tenth Amendment is on deck and Second Amendment is in the hole. Hopefully we never get to Second Amendment, hopefully the Tenth Amendment and First Amendment will get the job done … I’m all for this nullification of these federal laws that they’ got coming on, you know, the health care thing.”
“In the country—I grew up in the farmland and woods of Michigan—a gun to me was something I shot a squirrel with. Now it’s something I use to protect my family. Ten years from now it could be something I use to protect myself against the United States government.”
“I need to take the fight to the belly of the beast ... I want them to see us there ... You better think twice if you want to go up against the Second Amendment.”

“We’ve got over 20,000 gun laws on the books here in America. I think 20,000 is more than enough to do the job. Personally, I think part of the job that we have to do is get rid of a lot of those, because they’re just a bunch of crap. And they say, ‘Well, what would you do? What gun law do think is good?’ I say, ‘Well, there’s a lot of good gun laws we could have. How about if a guy comes up and tries to mug me, you gotta’ shoot him? That’s a good law. How about if some guy tries to rape your wife, you double-tap center of exposed mass until the threat stops?’”
“You know, the government, God bless them, did not give us the right to keep and bear arms. God gave us that right. No one can take away a right given by God except God and I was just talking to him this morning and He assured me that our rights are safe. The right to keep and bear arms cannot be taken away, it can only be given away. God gave it you, it’s yours. You can have it forever, but you can give it away. I implore you that you never, ever, ever do that. Stand up, fight, do whatever you gotta’ do.”
“I liken the Second Amendment March to Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King.”

"The wisdom of Ben Franklin aside, when push comes to shove, the sheep of this country will give up essential liberty to ensure their safety. And most Americans are, indeed, sheep ...

We'll bear the consequences, then in November, our penance will be complete along with their region of tyrannical terror."

Quotes from Daniel Almond:
“Our civil rights demonstration...has nothing to do with the skin color or racial background of any of the statists in all three branches of government who are bringing totalitarian socialism to America ... Think about the Kelo eminent-domain case, McCain-Feingold, or the McConnell political speech case. The Supreme Court’s failure to fulfill this final check-and-balance role is a much bigger danger to freedom in America than a few protestors with rifles ... I’m not really here to try and court majority opinion and win 51% support for my cause. There are much more skilled professionals who are better able to do that, even if that were necessary. In order to protect against tyranny of the majority, i.e., mob-rule, you can’t just confine your strategy to winning over the majority. It seems this would be obvious. When it comes to fundamental human rights, like free speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to keep and bear arms in self-defense against all threats to life, liberty, and freedom, the majority cannot strip away those civil rights. That’s why the Bill of Rights guarantees that those rights, and others, will always be immune from majority rule and the dangers of democracy.”

“For the sake of freedom, your founding fathers risked it all in the face of unmasked tyranny. Many of them lost it all. Many of them didn’t live long enough to enjoy any reward for their courage. If they play by the rules, then you’re in no more danger with us than at home. If their tyranny is unveiled, then you’re no safer at home than with us. I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ve made my decision and Lord willing, I’ll be there. You must also decide; How much will you risk for freedom? Come join us.”

“I don’t have time today to get into every example of the federal government’s overstepping and abuse of its limited Constitutional powers. I could go on about the federal government’s abuse of the commerce clause to justify prohibitions and regulations well beyond the scope of such as federal gun laws, federal drug laws, federal miniumum wage, etc. I could discuss the abuse of the 5th Amendment to seize private property and give it to another private entity, as in the Kelo decision. I could point out the finer points of the second Amendment’s clear wording, ‘shall not be infringed,’ as it pertains to Washington DC’s gun laws, even post- Heller. I could get into the nitty-gritty of how the federal government goes far beyond simply ‘collecting taxes’ and uses the IRS and the tax code as a vastly complex system of punishments and rewards designed to influence behavior and reward the well-connected. I could quote Article 1’s enumeration of certain powers authorized to Congress, which, by the way, do not include using taxpayer dollars to bail out banks, car companies, and others deemed ‘too big to fail.’”

“Nowhere in Congress’ enumerated powers as outlined in the US Constitution’s Article 1, Section 8 will you find the authority to compel US Citizens to purchase anything, let alone a form of health insurance that fits a narrowly defined set of criteria laid out by the federal government. While some representatives are ignorant enough to claim the ‘general welfare’ clause as justification, the courts’ favorite has been the power to regulate commerce ‘among the several states’ when past issues of arbitrary federal power have come up. Minimum wage and federal drug laws serve as past examples. If my decision not to purchase a government approved health insurance policy qualifies as interstate commerce subject to total government regulation to the point of compelling me to do so, then pretty much anything is permissable, and we are basically face to face with unlimited government. Couple the fact that most of the electorate does not know, understand or care about the details of the Constitution with the fact that, even if they did, our representatives don’t care what we think anyway, bold new steps must be taken.”

Bio: Pratt has been the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America (GOA) for 26 years. GOA opposes all existing gun control regulations, including background checks on firearm purchasers. Pratt’s radical history includes his attendance at the “Rocky Mountain Rendezvous” on October 23, 1992. Other attendees at the event included neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and followers of the anti-Semitic Christian Identity religion. This meeting has been described as marking the birth of the modern militia movement. Pratt resigned in February 1996 as co-chair of Pat Buchanan’s presidential campaign after his white supremacist/militia connections became known. He was a speaker at the "Second Amendment March" rally in Washington, D.C. on April 19, 2010.
Quotes from Larry Pratt:
“Anti-gunners often ask regarding an AR-15 or an AK-47, ‘Why would anyone want a gun like that? You cannot hunt with it.’ Even if that were true, the answer constitutionally is, ‘So what?’ Truly, the Second Amendment is not about hunting or target shooting as a recreation. Arguably, those pastimes are protected by the Ninth Amendment which says that ‘The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.’ AR-15's and other semi-automatic rifles should be in the hands of as many Americans as want them precisely because they make anti-gunners in general and many politicians in particular nervous. That was the express purpose the founders had in mind for the Second Amendment. When a government no longer fears the people, atrocities become possible such as the murder of members of Randy Weaver's family by U.S. Marshals and FBI agents [in 1992]. Emboldened by the lack of resistance when murdering women and children in Idaho, the Feds moved to Waco, Texas and slaughtered nearly 100 people, including four of their own agents [in 1993].”

Bio: Vanderboegh is the former leader of the Alabama Constitutional Militia and the author of the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog. The blog refers to “The Three Percent,” meaning the percentage of American gun owners who “will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act.” “We are the people that the collectivists who now control the government should leave alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption,” Vanderboegh warns. In a March 19, 2010 blog posting entitled, “To all modern Sons of Liberty: THIS is your time. Break their windows. Break them NOW,” Vanderboegh incited those unhappy with health care reform legislation to violent action. When incidents of vandalism were reported hours later at Democratic offices throughout the country, Vanderboegh was quick to take credit. Vanderboegh was a speaker at the "Restore the Constitution Open-Carry" rally at Fort Hunt National Park, Virginia, on April 19, 2010.
Quotes from Mike Vaderboegh:
“This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can't be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won't be done.The Founders' Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost. But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it. And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

“The enemies of the Founders' Republic believe that we will have come to threaten them. I suppose in a way that is true, if you are talking about trying to dissuade them from future tyrannical conduct. They also believe that we are a bunch of racist in-breds who cannot control ourselves. That is false, as we will show them. This will be an unprecedented show of political dissent. Never before have people demonstrated their opposition to tyranny with pistols on their hips and rifles slung across their backs, in disciplined fashion, without evil intent in their hearts. Our discipline will scare them as much as anything. When it is done, when we have come. made our point, and left, the message will be indelible -- tyranny stops here, or else. Join us in making that point. It may be our last chance to convince them without violence that we are done backing up.”

Bio: Rhodes is the founder and National President of Oath Keepers. The Oath Keepers, in their own words, are an “association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, peace officers, fire-fighters, and veterans who swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic ... and meant it. We won’t ‘just follow orders.’” The Oath Keepers website outlines ten orders their members will not obey because they consider them “unconstitutional (and thus unlawful) and immoral violations of the natural rights of the people.” Rhodes is a former firearms instructor and former member of Rep. Ron Paul’s staff in Washington, D.C. He writes for SWAT Magazine and has also written for Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). Rhodes was a speaker at the "Second Amendment March" rally in Washington, D.C. on April 19, 2010.
Quotes from Stewart Rhodes:
“This is about self-government, and about being free from onerous, oppressive, and unconstitutional federal laws and actions. One of the causes of the American Revolution was the claim by the British Parliament that it could legislate over the colonists in all cases whatsoever—down to the most minute detail of their lives. Our forefathers rejected that absurd claim. We are now rejecting the same assertion of totalitarian power by the Mordor on the Potomac. Brace yourselves—it's going to be a wild ride.”
“Note that one of the causes of nullification would be any more legislation restricting the right to bear arms, including restriction of type of arms. That means no new ‘Assault Weapons Ban.’ And you can bet that H.R. 45, which aims to register, fingerprint, and track gun owners just as if they were convicted child molesters, would also be considered a breach. If there is anything that has the potential to spark actual secession, and even actual civil war or revolution in this nation, it is those two onerous measures. Gun haters are playing with fire, and poking at a hornet's nest, with their plans for a renewed AWB and with the totalitarian H.R. 45.”
“History does indeed repeat itself. I think there is an awakening, a quickening, happening that may just rival what happened prior to the American Revolution. And I see pockets of resolve like Montana as the place where it will start.”

“Now, in our times that will try our souls, the oath breakers in Washington DC have declared a similar power to regulate us in all cases whatsoever, right down to the minutest details of our lives ... You took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The time has come to keep that oath by taking a firm stand, to let the oath breakers in DC know that you and yours will not submit and go quietly as they ‘transform’ our Constitutional Republic into what will rightly meet the definition of a totalitarian state (without limits on its powers, which it creates for itself out of thin air without the consent of the people). There is no more fitting time and place to send that message of defiance, resistance, and resolve than to step right up, shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters this April 19, 2010, and shout your oaths in the tyrant’s face.

Quotes from Tom Fernandez:
“I have voiced with others on and offline what I would be doing if a gun ban would be enacted by our government. I will not be visiting a designated depot to turn in my firearms for an exchange of money only to watch my freedoms get catalogued in an Excel Workbook, and watch them get tossed into a large plastic bin only later to be cut in half, crushed, or melted down. I will not wait for the local county sheriff or municipal police department to knock on my door to remove my weapons. I will not take a day off of work or plan a weekend road-trip to join your protest and march holding a sign asserting my rights. And I definitely will not be writing letters asking for redress! The moment a law is passed removing my rights is the moment I do not return to my place of employment and make it my full-time job to start knocking on doors. I will knock on doors in my neighborhood and community and gather likeminded men. Men who do not wish to give up their rights but do not know what else to do otherwise. I will speak with these men and families and tell them that the time for a different kind of action is required. What kind of action I know not of but I know I will find many who will also refuse to turn in their firearms. I will find those who feel the same and will ask those I find to find others along with me. I will not be the only one spreading the word and I will definitely not be alone in my venture. I will seek the help of others to communicate to others not to turn in their firearms and if necessary set a time and location for gathering. If we were to refuse the confiscation of our rights, then it would be done so en masse. And we would protect others from having their rights violated as well. Some of you may be reading at this point and now may call me a radical. If my desires to preserve my freedoms, by force if necessary, make me a radical, then it is a label that I will proudly wear.”
