Founding Fathers and Gun Safety

By 3rd Way

The SCOTUS review of the DC gun ban tomorrow should be interesting. While learning about the coming debate I came across something I did not know. Gun safety was not as foreign to the founding fathers as some would like us to believe.

A Massachusetts law of 1786 provided that within the city of Boston, it was unlawful to keep loaded "fire-arms, or any bomb, granade, or other shell... in any house, outhouse, barn, stable, store, ware-house, shop, or other building...."

Hopefully the current Supreme Court has as much common sense as the first law makers of this great nation and recognizes that fire arms are dangerous and should be subjected to reasonable regulation.
