Quote from John Adams 

"Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my person, my limbs and life, but of my property, is an indisputable right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I would. Nor is there anything in the common law of England inconsistent with that right."

John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
Boston Gazette, September 5, 1763, reprinted in The Works of John Adams 438 (Charles F. Adams ed., 1851).
