    "[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great
    Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man,
    - who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that
    it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that
    they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink
    gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia."

    -- George Mason (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,
    14 June 1778)
