So, they had the battle weapons of the day. The average colonial person had the equivalent of a full auto AR at theyir disposal.
If you are terrified of people doing stupid things, then society is going to be a scary scary place for you. Stay off the highways.
You are trying to keep this thread rolling, but come on.....a Brown Bess was not and is not the equivalent of a FA M16. Their ability to "interact" with society is vastly different.
And yeah a gas explosion could destroy my neighborhood so I live with that danger. I prefer not to add Billie Bob and his surplus bomb collection to that danger
So you are fine with Sgt Bigguns army surplus store selling SA7s on the highway next to say the Orlando airport? Makes that whole flight into Disneyworld with the family a wee bit more exciting no doubt.
