History Meme: Natural Disasters Eruption of Mount Vesuvius 79 AD
“Vesuvius… thundered, hurling flames worthy of Etna from her cliffs; and the fiery crest, throwing rocks up to the clouds, reached the trembling stars”
“Fom the other side, black and horrible clouds, broken by sinuous shapes of flaminf winds, were opening with long tongues of fire”
With America’s Founders being tugged around again with all the talk of gun control and whatever, I sometimes seriously wonder if people forget that not only does America in no way resemble its 18th century geography (do these people expect to fight a lot of English and French invaders?) but the securing of arms also has a nastier history of being associated with attacking the Native Americans whose land the whites were invading, and suppressing slave uprisings. While some of the Founders had no qualms giving guns to Native and African Americans, if it had been required for every male in America to own a musket, I can safely bet there would have been no Second Amendment. Because if you think the Second Amendment wasn’t largely race-related, I can’t help you.
