Jim & Greg are glad to see VP Kamala Harris finally deciding to visit the border amid mounting pressure from Donald Trump, conservatives, and some in the media. They also cringe at President Biden’s dishonest attempts to justify gun control and saying that anyone wanting to resist the government would need F-15s and nukes. Finally, they discuss China covering up their climate abuses by paying off American media outlets and nonprofits.

    Actually individuals could  purchase and own artillery when the Constitution was written and the Bill of Rights ratified. At a bare minimum, ships issued letters of marque and reprisal (see article I) were armed with artillery – and ships carried letters of marque and reprisal because they were privately-owned. That is why they were called privateers – because they were privately-owned warships. 

    So, Joe Biden is speaking through his posterior oriface when he said the framers of the Constitution did not intend civilians to own artillery. Some of them even owned shares in privateers.

    AFAIK you can – at least the muzzle-loading cannon as used in the Civil War. There is even a publication for people into it, The Artilleryman.

    People who are really into model rocketry – bigger stuff, not just the Estes type – like to wear t-shirts etc that say “As a matter of fact, I AM a Rocket Scientist!”

    Does anyone – yet – make shirts that say “As a matter of fact, I AM an Artillery Scientist!”

    During the Texas Revolution volunteers and donated material were provided by many sources in the United States. The citizens of Cincinnati took a collection and had two cannon manufactured and shipped to Texas. The debate as to their size and material continues. However, it is generally accepted that the two cannon, dubbed the “Twin Sisters” were delivered to the Texian Army at Groce’s plantation on the Brazos River on April 11, 1836.

    There is a chapter on the Twin Sisters in my book Vanished Houston Landmarks.
