And other good stuff from around that time, in this case the main text of the US Constitution: "Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. "
From the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776, which predates the United States Bill of Rights: "The people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the state."
Carrying a weapon does not make someone a man. It does not make someone an alpha male to have a gun.
It looks like just the opposite in the modern word: the gun is compensation for some male insecurity. Maybe not for concealed carry, but open carry guys for sure.
