Henry Magee, John Quinn, and the "Right of Resistance"

[The] constitutional security for `the right to keep and bear arms’ implies the right to use them … This is the only remedy suggested by the Constitution, and is necessarily the only remedy that can exist, when the government becomes so corrupt as to afford no peaceable one.

And it is only a matter of discretion with them whether to resort to it at any particular time. –
