In response to Governor Ralph Northam’s attack on the Second Amendment, Walter E. Williams, a professor of economics at George Mason University, asks his fellow Virginians to look to the founders and remember why they created the Second Amendment in the first place.

In an opinion piece on Fox News, he quotes Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, “Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government … and whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”

He also quotes James Madison, in Federalist Paper No. 46 who stated that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
