In fact, other than the preamble to the Constitution, the word "people" appears only once in the body of the Constitution concerning the election of members to the House of Representatives. Yet, the words State or States, referring to the several States, appears approximately seventy times."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
