May want to think about how different things were back then.

For instance, people understood what real freedom was about, not like the ungrateful assholes today who want to sell their country out because they were too stupid to ever build anything up themselves.

You needed guns in America, police forces weren't really organized, Indians were a real threat and invasions were also a serious thing to worry about.

America now is not the same as it was back then.

History does not repeat, but it does rhyme. If a person cannot control themselves, the person will be controlled by others. This nation was built with the assumption that most people can control themselves. The latter (will be controlled) votes Democrat, which is why democrats have been importing people who require government control & support. At some point, we will have to reconcile with either the changed population, or the form of government. Do you want to be a subject, or a citizen? How do you choose that?

We need guns today too. Police don't have to protect you. If they do, response times are not quick enough. Sometimes police are the ones you need to defend against.

Once you've built something up to call your own, you then need to protect it. Don't rely on police or the govt to do that.

What are you going to use, to defend yourself and all you've built up, a bat? No, a fucking shotgun

That and we now have 3D printers that print with metal. They could collect all guns and we could reprint all of them and more.

That's basically what happened after 9/11 with the "Patriot" Act.
