On this day in history, February 17, 1801, the deadlocked race for the third American presidency was finally broken in favor of Thomas Jefferson. With unimaginable partisan battles and smear campaigns, this election was sometimes called "The Revolution of 1800." The event began as a race between sitting Federalist President John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, Republican Democrat Vice President, and ended with a 35-ballot stalemate between Jefferson and his running mate Adam Burr before voters finally came to a decision. Cam Edwards shares some of the pro-Second Amendment quotes of the famous victor.
