Yup. Don't believe it? Then come on over to the People's Republik of Kalifornia where on that day the Black Panthers protested we virtually lost our rights to open carry. Yes, it's barely legal here (unloaded open carry only) but most are too afraid of either getting arrested and spending major defense $$$$$ or just causing even more strict anti-gun laws. Sorry to restate what the OP wrote, but here it is from the senate.ca.gov website...
The original writing of 2A was aimed NOT ONLY at the eventual reality of a tyrannical Govt, but also as an individual right to self preservation. This site focuses on the latter of those two.
You just can't seem to get it right.
One more time: OC is primarily about telling the government whose in charge.
I'm too young to know for sure what the People's response was to this government action, but it seems to me the entire pro-gun population should have gone in the day after that.
1967 The legislature was in session, debating a gun control bill, when two dozen armed members of the Black Panthers marched into the Assembly chamber. Then Assembly Chief Sergeant-at-Arms ordered the protesters out while terrified legislators hid behind their desks. The protesters, whose guns where not loaded, complied by leaving the building. Although they were not breaking any laws at the time, the next day legislation was introduced to make it illegal to bring weapons or firearms into the State Capitol.
And what country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. -Thomas Jefferson
