Politics, Assault Rifle, Guns, Musket, Truth, 2Nd Amendment, Gun Control
Get rid of all guns but Muskets! When the 2nd amendment was written, this is what a gun looked like.
Dear Gun Nuts, the 2nd Amendment states ‘a well ‘regulated’ militia; assault rifles didn’t exist in 1791
I doubt that the writers of the Constitution could even conceive of a “shooting spree”, and they almost certainly would have written this amendment differently had they had modern weapons to content with. We are supposed to be smart people. We should be able to come up with some kind of modern version of this amendment that doesn’t suck.
The process of reloading the musket. Frantically loading the bullet into the mussle of the gun then loading the gun powder before the enemy kills you. Railway Oggler: Napoleonic War Craze
Reloading could put a damper on your shooting spree. Today’s guns can fire hundreds of rounds per minute.
Just because the 2nd amendment of the US Constitution says we have the right to bear arms, I am sure they had no clue about assault weapons, machine guns, and semi automatics. All they could do back then was load a rifle with gun powder. Times have changed and so does the Constitution. In the spirit of the Constitution I have no problem with someone owning a gun that was available in 1776...a black powder, muzzleloading flintlock...go for it..)
Not assault rifles. ... Yes, this. They can have that sort of gun, and only that sort of gun.
Truth be told...

The Shot Heard Round the World occurred during a brief battle between British troops and local minutemen at the North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts. It took place April 19, 1775 after British troops encountered the local minutemen. The battle came to be known as the Battle of Concord. British soldiers were killed during the battle and it was considered the first victory for America’s independence. The battle kick started the Siege of Boston & Revolutionary War

Tools of the gunner's trade (not to scale). The sponge, moistened with water, extinguished sparks in the bore after firing. The worm cleaned unburned fragments of cloth powder bags from the bore. Ladles were originally used to load powder; after cartridge bags came into use, they were used to extract loads from muzzle-loaders without firing. The rammer sealed cartridge and ball in place; the scraper and searchers were used to clean the gun and to find damaged spots in the bore. The handspike ...

Whether you visit one of the official U.S. Navy Museums, take advantage of public programs and publications, or seek knowledge through the artifacts, documents, images and artwork available at the NHHC, you will find that this is where the history, legacy and traditions of the United States Navy come alive.
The 7 December 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history. A single carefully-planned and well-executed stroke removed the United States Navy's battleship force as a possible threat to the Japanese Empire's southward expansion. America, unprepared and now considerably weakened, was abruptly brought into the Second World War as a full combatant.
