A musket and a pistol of 1776 were considered at the time state of the art weaponry. Those weapons are no different from any semi-auto pistol and AR-15 of today FACT! That is why the STR logo is as it is, to symbolize the patriots of 1776 to those of today!
“… the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”
Marshall is wrong the stats show those societies armed see less violence and crime than those disarmed.
