In the English colonies, as recent scholarship has shown, private gun ownership was also relatively limited.

This tells you all you need to know about this state department bias against our RKBA. They're obviously referring to the totally debunked and disgraced work by Michael Belisles (SP).

So was PRIVATE PROPERTY!

So would the right to own property be a "collective right" and allow ONLY the "gubmint" to keep and maintain such?

That passage was what grabbed my eye, also. Without firearms, life on the frontier would have been impossible. But this shows, once again, how useful a lie can be to those who do not have conscience. Belisles is a scoundrel, who set out to mislead. It is difficult to imagine any motive for his work that would be consistent with any legitimate American purpose.

The article also is very selective--in a biased sense--in some of its other citations. For a better perspective on what the Founding Fathers intended: The Right & Duty To Keep & Bear Arms.

No surprise there. Most governments throughout history have had a real problem with the peasants having weapons.
