I want to understand what you're driving at here and I don't get it. What's
the referent of "Its"? Are you saying you think Aunt Tillie's view of the
world should guide the presentation of options?

Are we at last brought to such a humiliating and debasing degradation,
that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defence? Where is the
difference between having our arms in our own possession and under our
own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If
our defence be the *real* object of having those arms, in whose hands
can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in
our own hands?
