    I like to say in the American Revolution, the musket and long rifle WERE assault weapons of their day

  3. Muskets were the “assault rifles” of that day. Civilians had parity with the military.

  4. And when the First Amendment was written, no distinction was made between citizen and “journalist”.

  5. You mean like “assault” weapons?

  6. and horses were the finest fastest mode of transport, #AlGore had not yet invented the #Internet and indoor plumbing nope

  7. @Gun_Shots And, the civilians were often better armed than the military – Kentucky Rifles vs. Muskets.

  8. @Gun_Shots Militia Act (1792) required every citizen to own a gun. Every one.

  9. @Gun_Shots and the First Full Auto Machine GUN was designed in 1884 “The Maxim”

  10. and until Vietnam the soldiers were allowed to keep certain rifles

  11. That was really the point after all…

  12. That’s not true. A large caliber British smoothbore musket with a bayonet lug was military. Rifles were for hunting.

  13. @Gun_Shots and not just infantry rifles,it covered swords, modern field artillery, grenades, & naval guns.

  14. Exactly! My family was there. And let me tell you the sentiment runs deep. DEATH TO TYRANTS.

  15. Odd, how no one seems to grasp this fact. Ignorance is bliss???

  16. I don’t get the “rights are based on technology” argument. Freedom of press doesn’t just apply to 18th century newspapers
