By Wallace Freeman The most credible theory I've heard so far is that this event was a conspiracy by the traitors seeking to infringe upon the people's right to keep and bear arms.

By William Dykeman To understand how misguided these kinds of arguments truly are, it's best to begin where their adherents generally do: the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Any comparison between the American revolutionaries and today's would-be freedom fighters is seriously flawed. Eighteenth century colonial society was dramatically less organized than 21st century America. The Minutemen and other colonial militias were formed by farmers and tradesmen who possessed individual firearms. But they were organized into disciplined companies under the authority of the Massachusetts Provisional Congress, the successor to a legally established provincial assembly. Even though the British had abrogated its charter, the structure of the assembly still remained.

By William Dykeman n other words, when these militias assembled in Lexington and Concord to resist British troops, they were subject to formal lines of command and control under a legitimate authority, and they had the broad support of their political communities. Colonial Massachusetts also enjoyed a degree of social cohesion and agreement on basic political principles far greater than we have in 21st century America.

By William Dykeman Bloody Kansas" provides a valuable historical contrast. In 1854, Congress decided to overturn the Missouri Compromise and allow the territory of Kansas to decide by referendum whether it would enter the Union as a slave or a free state. New England abolitionists sponsored more than a thousand armed settlers, armed with weapons they called "Beecher's Bibles," to move to Kansas to support the "free state" movement. Thousands more free-state supporters moved from throughout the Midwest.

By William Dykeman Despite the colonial victory at Concord, the Minutemen and other local militias played a minor role in the eventual American defeat of King George III. The decisive factors in America's War of Independence were the battlefield victories of organized colonial armies acting under the authority of the Continental Congress and state-organized militias. The financial and military support of America's European allies also played a crucial role.

By Wallace Freeman The second amendment says it recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms for the preservation of a FREE state not whichever one happens to be headquartered in Washington DC.

By William Dykeman The Gun Lobby's interpretation of the Second Amendment is one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American People by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime. The real purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that state armies - the militia - would be maintained for the defense of the state. The very language of the Second Amendment refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an unfettered right to any kind of weapon he or she desires.
