The Massachusetts House of Representatives on the Right to Defend

The (Provincial) House of Representatives of Massachusetts, from The Works of Benjamin Franklin: “Self-defence, my Lord, whether it regard individuals or bodies of men, is the first law of nature. The right of defence includes all means requisite and proper for that defence, and consequently a right to appoint and support their own defender.”
