The rights of Englishmen and ‘gun culture’

I see that there is an interesting piece at Identity Dixie, titled ‘Colonial American Gun Culture and the Rights of Englishmen.’ The writer notes the difference between the laws on firearm possession in the original colonies. The background and history of this makes for interesting reading.

And as the piece indicates, the right to bear arms stems from the notion of the obligation to bear arms.  Read the rest at Identity Dixie.

As I implied in my recent piece touching on this subject, it’s more than ironic that our kinsmen in Britain no longer have what we considered the ‘rights of Englishmen’, including the right to bear arms.
