    Hey all, I decided write my term paper for this semester's final on the RKBA. The assignment was to take 1 current day issue, and, figure out how Jefferson would have interpreted it. So far, I have all the Jefferson and Aristotle research done, and broken the argument down to 3 points:

    1-All men are created with the inalienable rights of Life and Liberty (truncated to keep what is important)

    2-Government is created for the purpose of protecting these rights

    3-And it is the right of the citizens to remove this government when it becomes destructive

    Now. I chose those 3 points of the Declaration of Independence (with signifigant backup from the Letters) because they map well to the purpose of the RKBA. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find an official typeof website that explicitly puts out these points, and was hoping someone here had one close by.

    ALSO-- After I justify the RKBA based on Jefferson, I have to bring light to the current situation, and how we are doing. I was wondering if anyone has any articles (1 from each side if possible), where the author analyzes the current day situation.

    Thanks for the help guys, and I will absolutely post it when its done! (already 2 pages in.... good grief...)

    Note: IF at all possible, a JPFO article would be best (as the Professor is Jewish, and GRAVELY anti-gun). I have been searching their site for the past few hours, and havent found anything, but I was hoping one of you would have something book marked.

    Thanks in advance!
