There is a WWII story. Germany was considering invading Switzerland. The German general said to the Swiss general, “ What would you do if I invade you with 300,000 troops?” The Swiss general replied, “ I would issue my troops 300,000 bullets.” The German general said, “ What if I invaded with 600,000 troops?” The Swiss general said, “ I would issue each of my troops another bullet.” The Germans did not invade Switzerland in WWII.

An armed man is a free man.
