Thomas Jefferson believed strongly that everyone should carry a gun. He always had his pocket gun with him, even when he was President. When I was at Monticello a few years ago, they had a "Jefferson's Pockets" display at the visitor's center that among other things included his pocket pistol. They have since removed the gun due to complaints.
