Samuel Colt was one of the great innovators of the American nineteenth century - a time when the government and its employees knew enough to refrain from hogtying its most creative citizens.

Were he alive today, Colt would find the bureaucratic resistance to his creativity very - and perhaps prohibitively - daunting, and America would be without yet another series of advances.

If he was alive today we’d hear:

1. What average citizen needs such a dangerous weapon that fires multiple shots quickly?

2. Only the military should have such a weapon, civillians should only be allowed single shot weapons.

3. We need to know who has these kinds of assault weapons, they need to be registered and need special licenses to carry multiple-shot firearms.

4. What kind of sick mind comes up with such an instrument of death? What’s the purpose other than to slaughter a whole array of people at once?

That’s what he’d be up against today.
