How the British Gun Control Program Precipitated the American Revolution
#1
The article linked below is fascinating reading.

Some people are of the opinion that government restriction or confiscation, has no negative consequences. David Kopel demonstrates, in a very scholarly way, that this is not the case. In fact, he shows how government confiscation of guns was the ignition event of The American Revolution.

The referenced article is a substantial PDF file -- "How the British Gun Control Program Precipitated the American Revolution" -- a section of a major law review project. Start at page 2 and note the many references to court cases and sources. Understanding the United States Constitution requires understanding the British practices that drove the Americans to armed revolution.

Do take the time to read the article.

The similarities between events of then and now are frightening.
