What complete and utter bullshit. Everybody had a gun in those days. They needed it for hunting and they needed them for self defense, particularly with the British at their door step. There weren't local police forces in most places. There were no gun laws at the federal level or even the state level. Gun control wasn't even a term that existed in colonial America. Not that his use of foreign laws in making his decisions isn't enough evidence already, this is just further proof that Stephen Breyer is unfit for service on the U.S. Supreme Court.
