As patriotic Americans, we are proud of our Founding Fathers and the freedoms they enumerated for us, especially through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The ideas and truths set out in these documents are what makes America special and sets us apart as the greatest nation on earth, a beacon of freedom and opportunity for the rest of the world.
America’s forefathers laid the ground for America’s freedom with the Declaration of Independence in 1776. After victory was secured in the Revolutionary War, America’s forefathers envisioned unending freedom for our country and drafted the essential documents outlining our new nation’s freedoms: the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. At the heart of those inspired documents, the Founding Fathers laid a foundation guaranteeing freedom to every American citizen and limiting the role the government would play in shaping that freedom.
The ‘insurance policy’ on the whole package is the Second Amendment – the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms – and that is exactly how the Founding Fathers intended it.
Even though it has become a hot button political issue and the topic of endless legal debate, at its core, the Second Amendment is about freedom. The Founding Fathers understood that the right of individuals to bear arms is non-negotiable. Throughout our nation’s history, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” has remained a vital liberty. Many people believe, “To disarm the people is the most effective way to enslave them.”
Today, America Remembers and the American Historical Foundation present The Colt® Second Amendment® – Founding Fathers Tribute Pistol – Museum Edition issued exclusively by America Remembers and The American Historical Foundation and Officially Licensed by Colt. Each Tribute is hand-polished and decorated by craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers. For this important Tribute, we’ve selected one of America’s most respected firearms: the Colt® Government Model® Pistol in caliber .45 ACP.
In magnificent detail, the classic design of this handsome Tribute pistol captures the spirit and importance of the Second Amendment and the legendary Founding Fathers who built our nation. Each Tribute features custom grips which add a special touch to each firearm. These distinctive arched end walnut grip panels bear the incised signatures of eight of our Founding Fathers – four on the left grip and four on the right – without whom we might not enjoy our firearms freedoms today.
The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms
More than a decade after the Revolutionary War, the thirteen colonies faced economic problems and internal unrest. Our forefathers wanted freedom. They had waged a revolution to set themselves free, but now they needed something to bind the nation together in order to secure and guarantee a future for America. America needed blueprints, a set of cornerstone documents that would define the vision of its founders. Within those documents, the Founding Fathers vowed to include the freedoms and liberties that would forever keep tyranny at bay.
For months, men discussed, debated, and eventually drew up the document that would unify the struggling sovereign states into one nation: the Constitution of the United States of America. Once a consensus was reached, the newly ratified Constitution became the law of the land and the blueprint for the new American democracy, but there were still those who wanted more. That’s why our Founding Fathers added a very powerful postscript to the document – the Bill of Rights. High at the top of that list was the Second Amendment, which plainly stated that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” After their historic victory over the British monarchy, America’s new leaders wanted to make certain that power remained in the hands of the people.
Colt: An American Firearms Legend
At America Remembers, we agreed there was no better canvas for the Colt® Second Amendment® – Founding Fathers Tribute Pistol – Museum Edition than the Colt Government Model .45 pistol. It is an American-made firearm legend that defended our liberty for almost 75 years through major world wars and history-making conflicts. No firearm in history can boast a more impressive record of American military service than the Colt .45 pistol.
The original .45 caliber masterpiece was designed by John Browning and this powerful Colt .45 was designated as America’s official sidearm for our country’s Armed Forces in 1911. More than a century later, it is still considered by generations of American Veterans to be the best and most powerful military sidearm ever issued.
Museum Hand-Engraved Edition – “One of 100”
Each Museum Colt® Second Amendment® Founding Fathers Pistol is hand-polished and overall decorated with elegant 24-karat gold. Each of these museum-quality masterpieces features a combination of etching and hand-engraving using the traditional, time-honored hammer-and-chisel technique to complement the lines of this sleek model. Engravers with years of experience hand-cutting artwork on firearms have been commissioned specifically for this historic project by America Remembers to engrave the oak leaves.
Each Museum Edition features extensive hand engraving across both sides of the slide; both sides of the frame; and across the top of the slide and the trigger, slide stop and thumb safety. The banner on the left side featuring the words of our Second Amendment, a Minute Man, and the Rampant Colt are etched in deep bas-relief into the slide for all to see.
