Well, these two sure answer a LOT of questions....

Journals of the Continental Congress, "those who refuse to take up arms in defence", June, 25, 1778

Journals of the Continental Congress, Amendment of Confederation; "...all persons who refuse to bear Arms in defence...", June 27, 1778

Excerpt:

"In the act of independence we find the following declaration: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness:" of this doctrine it is not a very remote consequence, that all the inhabitants of every society, be the colour of their complexion what it may, are bound to promote the interest thereof, according to their respective abilities. They ought therefore to be brought into the account on this occasion. But, admitting necessity or expediency to justify the refusal of liberty in certain circumstances to persons of a particular colour, we think it unequal to reckon nothing upon such in this case. Should it be improper, for special local reasons, to admit them in arms for the defence of the nation, yet we conceive the proportion of forces to be embodied ought to be fixed according to the whole number of inhabitants in the State, from whatever class they may be raised...."

You usurpers can pound sand. You are working at defeating the very reason for which our Union was formed. That directly makes you TRAITORS to the American cause.

I point out time and again that victim disarmament is treason. Keep up the pressure.
