    Who threw off the yoke of British oppression with the help of private arms. :D

    If you read Armed America, by Clayton Cramer, there are some great writings by British commanders about how they get casualties everytime they go out in the countryside from the d**ned militia.

    Have I recommended that book already?

    That's the kind of society I'd be proud to be a part of. 8) Reading this also makes me wonder about revolutions in relation to armed society. Which revolutions were more successful, which of those successful revolutions were more benefitial to the people, and so on?

    Why do you think the British were disarmed? It is a class society, and they had a really nasty red scare during the early third of the twentieth century.
