Thank you. I looked into this and found that Thomas Jefferson was pretty much the only Founding Father that did so. He also advocated "spilling the blood of Tyrants" referring to the very government he was the head of.“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785In the context of a "Well Regulated Militia..."Funny how the 2nd Amendment also doesn't have an except for clause, no mentions of bans, but is pretty damn specific about the rights of the people.
I must have missed those. Can you post those (only) again?I've also posted several quotes by the founding fathers that verify an individuals right to self-defense.
Virtually every other FF spoke of the "right to bear arms" only in the context of the militia
