Great Moments in American Gun Control

Common sense legislation was enacted by civil authorities to take away arms from felons. These felons agitated among their facilitators and had to be met with a strong response. The account of one of these trouble makers is captured in this link:

By this time many of the company had gathered around the captain at the hearing of the drum, where we stood, which was about half way between the meetinghouse and Buckman's tavern. Parker says to his men, 'Every man of you, who is equipped, follow me; and those of you who are not equipped, go into the meeting-house and furnish yourselves from the magazine, and immediately join the company.'
