Not sure why you think your argument here has any teeth.
And to think you spoke of logical fallacies.Sounds like the Taliban to me. Yep.
This one is a 'non-sequitur'.
On the contrary -- I am arguing that the practice then was as accepted as the practice today.Yes, this was my point. Do you think the gov't should tell you that you have to provide health care for the old and the poor, or not? If you say no, then you can't be in favor of "such silliness" as the gov't expecting compliance on telling people to own guns. You both argue for and against a system of doing things depending on whether you happen to agree with the particular topic at that particular time.
