Quote from Samuel Adams 

"It is always dangerous to the liberties of the people
to have an army stationed among them, over which they have no control ...
The Militia is composed of free Citizens.
There is therefore no danger of their making use of their Power
to the destruction of their own Rights,
or suffering others to invade them."

Quote by:
Samuel Adams
(1722-1803), was known as the "Father of the American Revolution."
3 Samuel Adams, Writings 251 (Henry A. Cushing Ed., 1906).
