... "Like the documentary journalist Iain Overton, author of this book, I was taught to shoot and maintain a gun as a boy. As an adult I joined a campaign to monitor, curb and limit the arms trade.

"When I moved to Texas I immediately bought a black powder Navy Colt with which to practise the cowboy spins, rolls and shifts I had learned as a boy.

Truth be told our second amendment isn't germane to this argument. Our "inalienable right" of self defense dates back to the Magna Carta and beyond. There's no "mistique" to to a recognized "right" preceding the advent of firearms in public hands. Our second amendment doesn't describe or delimit "arms" a citizen can bear. At least one patriot used a sword to good effect during our revolution. But, then so did those charged with quelling the rebellion.

Which begs the question why shouldn't current american patriots - i.e. "the militia" (see George Mason) - have unfettered access to similar arms/ammunition/equipment as any light infantry squad in our army ?

The Brady Bill's only effect will be to desensitize the public to regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation. Charles Krauthammer, The Washington Post, April 5, 1996
