Help Request

I am looking for a good, attributable historic quote that gives the following sentiment, suitable for T-shirts or buttons with the election year coming up.
"The 2nd amendment is the one that would let us get the rest back if they were taken away. The fact that the people have guns puts off any would-be totalitarians."
I know I have seen quotes of this sort before, there is one on the tip of my tongue that I will know when I see it. Hope you folks can give me a hand.

The Second Amendment is in case the politicians ignore the First.

Something like that.

"The Second Amendment - when all else fails."

I have also seen a picture of one of those glass boxes with an AR-15 inside. The print said, "IN CASE OF EMERGENCY BREAK GLASS."

"Removal of the Second Amendment ensures the rest will fall more easily."


"Once the Second Amendment falls, there's nothing to prevent the removal of others."

A spin on an old Colt advertisement

God created man, the Second Ammendment made man equal.

Or, since the Libs seem to be the biggest supporters of the first ammendment,

If you value the First Ammendment, support the 2nd.

That last one is excellent, Dust. I wouldn't mind a shirt like that at all!

The Second Amendment is the only guarantee that ensures our government obeys the rest.

"Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."
Thomas Jefferson
Third President of the United States

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
George Mason
Co-author of the Second Amendment
during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

Someone here has the sig-line "The 2nd Amendment is the reset-button for government" - something like that.
