Thom often references the Collected Writings of Thomas Jefferson on his show and I see that there is a website that contains the text of this now out of print gem for those who are interested.

The complete 12 volume1904 "Federal" edition is available for download from "The Internet Archive". Each volume must be downloaded separately and can be found by searching "Works Thomas Jefferson". This is the set Thom often references. Volume One is here: http://archive.org/details/jeffersonsworks01jeffuoft

Do not download the "Google" editions "uploaded to the Internet Archive by user tpb" which are typically of very poor quality, but instead scroll down until you see the editions simply identified as "Works: (Volume 1, etc.) -Jefferson, Thomas, 1743-1826" These are the best quality.

What would Thom say to this;?

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"

-- Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334

Hopefully, he would point out that this is a manufactured quotation, the first sentence somewhat actual, and the rest gratuitously tacked on in the hope that no one will question its authenticity.
