The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the Colonists. (In Mass of all places!!!)
It’s only fitting that the American Revolution ends with the Colonists demanding to be disarmed.
You’ve come a LONG way baby. :D
Our founders knew that the citizen had the right to bear arms against the British soldier. This tells me that the citizen must be armed sufficiently against the weapons technology of a military threat. “That the right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned.”
In Colonial times, “arms” were taken any weapon that could be carried. Such arms were a different thing than tanks, cannons and surface to surface missiles with warheads. Such had another name. They were called “ordinance.” These are not constitutionally protect. However, anything that can be carried is protected. A citizen needs to protect himself from a military tyranny foreign or domestic (or a threat from another planet).
