My point in posting this was to point out that the catalyst that started the American Revolution was that a large military force came to the small town of Concord to confiscate a 24-pound shot cannon buried in the ground behind a local tavern, they did not come to confiscate guns. So from the view point of authors of the US Constitution their line in the sand was crossed many decades ago.
