    Thanks for the historical link Doug.
    Those Minute Men went up against the army of the most powerful nation on the planet at that time, shooting at them and killing them over ~17 miles of road march, all the way back to Boston.
    I have to think the Minute Men, therefore most American men of the time, were very hard men. Can you imagine any small city or large town in America today that would turn out, say 25%, of its male population and engage in a day-long firefight if a couple battalions of uniformed and armed soldiers or government agents showed up en masse to seize their arms?

    I can’t see that happening today, unless the gov’t were coming for smart phones and to enforce a Starbucks tax, then the millennials might wear pussy hats and carry signs along the route of march.
