Madison Supported Gun Control

James Madison, Jr. (March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1836) was an American statesman and political theorist. He was the fourth President of the United States (1809–1817) and is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” for being the primary author of the United States Constitution and the author of the United States Bill of Rights.

In Madison’s Federalist Papers No. 46, he wrote about his support for the governments right to disarm the people and deny possession of arms.

“The…federal government may…force…for a sufficient period of time,…an uninterrupted…fixed plan…to…deny…the people…arms. And it is…certain…,that…they would…be able to…possess the additional advantages of local governments…and…spite…the rights of…possession.”

Feel free to use this quote when NRA Extremists Fetishists claim that they have a right to deadly assault weapons of mass destruction.
