Quote from Sir William Blackstone 

"And, lastly, to vindicate these rights,
when actually violated and attacked,
the subjects of England are entitled,
in the first place, to the regular administration
and free course of justice in the courts of law;
next to the right of petitioning the king
and parliament for redress of grievances; and,
lastly, to the right of having and using arms
for self preservation and defense."

(1723-1780) English jurist, judge, Tory politician
