Historical Note: Patrick Henry bought guns via newspaper wanted ads


One of the less noticable campaigns by the anti-gun bigots has been pressuring newspapers to refuse advertisements for firearms, under the theory that firearms advertised in that manner might be sold to criminals.  (Nevermind that there is no evidence this actually happens regularly).  Some people find it a little bit difficult to defend the practice because it doesn't involve asking the government for permission. 

Well, David Hardy over at Arms and the Law provides a solid historical argument for allowing newspapers to carry for sale and wanted ads for firearms.  That's a damn good blog over there.
