44. Gun control laws should be common. "No discharge of weapons in town" (except in legitimate defense)

 

is a gun control law. "All weapons must be holstered" is a gun control law. "No guns for violent convicts or the criminally insane" is a gun control law. "No guns for toddlers" is a gun control law. Of course there were gun control laws.

Now you may be able to find illegitimate, unconstitutional gun control laws, too. But if you look, you can also find illegitimate, unconstitutional SPEECH control laws of the era as well. There are a lot of constitutional FIRST AMENDMENT principles that have just been upheld by the Court recently: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Supreme_Court_cases_involving_the_First_Amendment .

One very well known example of a blatantly unconstitutional law violating the First Amendment is the Alien and Sedition Acts. The fact that there were unconstitutional laws violating the Second Amendment is nothing special.
