In a letter discussing changes to the Constitution in 1787, Thomas Jefferson gave voice to the idea behind the 2nd Amendment.
And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. -Thomas Jefferson
Wear it proudly and remind them that the spirit of resistance remains.
