Sarah Palin Gets The 2nd Amendment And Paul Revere’s Ride Wrong Palin said, “He who warned uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”

Okay, there is a little problem with Palin’s story. Paul Revere’s historic ride occurred in 1775, the constitutional convention did not even convene until 1787.
