+1 Shaun, excellent paper. I wish it were taught correctly in our schools. It is up to us to keep these facts and knowledge alive.

Excellent article. I found the foot note about the British seizing arms from people in Ireland interesting. This was to keep them from getting into the hands of the IRA. There is nothing new under the sun.

The mention a 1947 Law allowing the City of New York to charge higher fees for the issuance or renewal of a handgun permit than the state to discourage people from owning handguns was interesting too. A fee of $340 payable every 3 years. It reminds me of $500 FOID Blago our former governor who wanted to change the FOID fee to $100 a year.

I am blown away at the similarities between the British Governments actions back then and the actions of our current government. Certainly looks like we are heading for another revolution.
