Not to mention that the people were encouraged, not just allowed, to own a musket, which at the time was a military “assault rifle.” There was no distinction between muskets for military service and home use. Hence the wording of the Second Amendment being intentionally expansive.

The 2A refers to "arms", which was intended to cover ALL arms (and still does) that the government has. From a bayonet to an F15 (with bombs & missiles) to an A10 built around a 30mm autocannon to a battleship.

Not just sidearms or rifles.

Wood = Good

Also "high capacity" (20 round) semi auto "assault weapons" were in circulation and owned by the framers. None of the grabbers' old lies actually apply they just assume Americans are too stupid to know any better.

More than encouraged - the Second Congress passed legislation requiring most male citizens to serve in the militia. Any who were supposed to serve were required to "provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt, two spare flints and a knapsack, a pouch with a box therein to contain not less than twenty-four cartridges, suited to the bore of his musket or firelock, each cartridge to contain a proper quantity of powder and ball..."

It turns out the founders were much smarter than Pelosi, AOC, Schumer, Feinstein, Biden, Obama and knew pieces of shit like them out come along one day and worded our Constitution to be timeless.

One of my hobbies is making working scale models of black powder cannons. Here's a model Dahlgren gun shooting 1" ball bearings off my canoe! https://imgur.com/hsb1DCP

You could probably fit a 3-pounder on it. They did that with small boats back in the day.

1 pound, 3 pound, 5 pound or mortar?

Edit: There's also the swivel cannon.

I’d go with a 3–5in quick firing gun, any bigger and the rounds are too heavy to keep up a decent rate of fire. 3in was barely sinking cargo ships in ww2, there’s an account of a us sub firing 100+ rounds at a ship before it sank.

1911 pistols are proof that God loves us

I've got a 24' Sportsman Master. I could mount a .50 on the front deck! Then a couple of mounted 7.62 machine guns on the rear deck.

Really makes President Bad Touch's regular statements that you "can't buy a cannon" all the more stupid, doesn't it?

I'm not sure it does since it's just a straight lie. A black powder cannon isn't even legally a firearm. You absolutely can just go buy one.

I bring this up all the time to people that say the founding fathers never intended you to have "weapons of war" Fuck you bitches, the founding fathers would have been more than happy if I showed up to go fishing with my very own Tico.
