Throughout the 15 galleries and 2,700+ firearms, one common thread is consistent. Firearms retain a unique place in American history and contemporary society because America is a unique democracy. As Charlton Heston reminds us in the speech that inspired this gallery, "There can be no free speech, no freedom of press, no freedom to protest, no freedom to worship your God, no freedom to speak your mind, no freedom from fear, no freedom for your children and for theirs, for anybody, anywhere, without the Second Amendment freedom to fight for it."
