"Give me liberty, or give me death!" Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Virginia Convention” in March of 1775 King George had declared all 13 North American colonies to be in a state of open rebellion. The Royal Governor of Virginia, had ordered all the gunpowder in Williamsburg seized and stored aboard his ship anchored in the Virginia harbor, to keep it out of the hands local patriot forces. Patrick Henry, then a Virginia militia Colonel, with his militia troops faced down Lord Dunmore, forcing the British Governor in the famous "Gunpowder Affair" to return the large quantity of gunpowder. Ever since those days, the Bill of Rights 2nd Amendment "Right to Bear Arms" (including gunpowder) has been a precious liberty and guarantee of freedom for Virginians and all Americans. http://www.history.org/almanack/life/politics/giveme.cfm
