Hey, Pinocchio, of course they could own a cannon!
In a recent speech, the 46th President, again, said that there have always been restrictions on weapons ownership. He said, again, “The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”
Well, of course, you could.
There were no federal laws restricting weapons ownership until 1934, and even then, the NFA (National Firearms Act) didn’t make owning weapons other than sporting firearms illegal, it merely put a tax on ownership.
For a complete explanation, see:
Again, the 46th President is either stupid or a liar. Or possibly both.
And, worst of all, he forgets that gun control laws barred SLAVES AND INDIANS from having guns! Gun control laws were racist laws to protect the white majority. Concealed carry laws were put in place to protect the public from the guns carried by Italians and European Jews! Gun control has been a tool of racism.
You think that the Democrats would join us in or effort to eliminate gun control laws.
Or at least, someone would tell Pinocchio to check his facts.
