Response to jimmy the one (Reply #38)

44. Disarmament

As I stated in the parts you quoted, Gage had stopped allowing any withdrawals from the powder-houses, either public or private stores. That is a clear case of disarmament, especially when it was coupled with the ban on importing arms and powder. Somehow, though, I doubt you will allow your brain to untwist itself and concede the point.

As for the Boston Tea Party, that was a direct response to yet another Intolerable Act (the tax on tea), which was driven by parliament and the King. Face it - the Crown decided that there was no need to do nothing more than pay lip service to its overseas colonies, and it blew up in their face. no matter how loud the patriots voices were, they would not have been able to sway public opinion without the plentiful provocations provided by the British government.

Another historical reference - Lord Dartmouth's orders to Gage. It is very instructive to read them and discover that, no matter how far back in history you go, bureaucrats have always been out of touch with events that unfolded outside their immediate purview...

And once again, we won - that makes us freedom fighter, not rebels...
