Government ended with the Armistice, Thompson was undaunted and started promoting his new weapon as a police gun. Thompson's new gun was a delayed blowback type feeding from a characteristic drum magazine with an outline which became well known, a finned barrel, two pistol grips and a short butt. Thompson coined the term "submachine gun" but the press needed a term to catch the public fancy, and thus, the term "Tommy Gun" came into being. Auto-Ordnance actually registered "Tommy Gun" with the Trade Mark division of the Patent Office and this was even stamped on some guns. It was adopted by the U.S. Marines even though it received highly unfavorable publicity in criminal hands.
Even though there are some laws to control guns, but it still has lots of arguments about the gun control law. Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, which was one of the laws in the United States for gun control, it used to success in the past four years. In 2004, this law was limited to carry concealed weapons, and a 2006 estimate preempting any local gun rules. (Jost 907) However, in the recent years, the laws become loose because of too many ammunition smuggling.
Advances in weaponry and the more effective use of gunpowder continued. The invention of the harquebus was a watershed invent in weaponry. The harquebus is also known as the arquebus or the hackbut. This is a very primitive firearm used between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries. The musket is a successor of the harquebus.
Puckle Gun – 1718 In 1718, James Puckle of London, England, demonstrated his new invention, the "Puckle Gun," a tripod-mounted, single-barreled flintlock gun fitted with a multi shot revolving cylinder. This weapon fired nine shots per minute at a time when the standard soldier's musket could be loaded and fired but three times per minute. Puckle demonstrated two versions of the basic design. One weapon, intended for use against Christian enemies, fired conventional round bullets, while the second variant, designed to be used against the Muslim Turks, fired square bullets, which were believed to cause more severe and painful wounds than spherical projectiles. The "Puckle Gun" failed to attract investors and never achieved mass production or sales to the British armed forces.

Now we have one remaining bullet that has to account for the remaining seven wounds in Kennedy and Connally. Rather than investigating further, or admitting to anything, the Warren Commission decided to close the case. One of the biggest lies forced on the American people ever before. The single bullet to account for seven wounds is known as the Magic Bullet Theory. A 6.5 millimeter rifle bullet shot from the sixth floor of the Depository passed through President Kennedy’s neck and Governor Connally’s chest and wrist and then submerged itself in the Governor’s thigh.
Majority of the laws that congress is passing are only good for the typical Caucasian male and not for the African American male and or the African American teen male that typically tends to end up in the worst case situation. The reason I say it is typically for the Caucasian male is because the laws that we have on guns are more along the lines for hunting like the NRA law that states that “as long as you are 13 with a hunters license you can buy and or sell a hunters rifle”. If you ask me the NRA doesn’t know how to control themselves let alone a gun. Many people think that since the NRA has been in business since the 1720s they know what they are talking but that’s not the case. A movement to ban handguns began in the 1920s in the Northeastern, led by the conservative business establishment.
Sense I have been around a variety of weapons through my life I have seen the devastation first hand that a bullet can do to both targets and game alike. If a weapon that is being used to kill people in war why should we be allow such a weapon in homes across America? A good friend of my family’s is a police officer and has explained to me that if someone were to fire at him with an automatic rifle he would have no real way to fight back because a pistol is no match for an assault rifle and the standard issue shotgun does not shoot as far as an assault rifle bullet can shoot so he is outgunned and has no real defense. It poses a threat to police officers and to citizens alike. A bullet that can go through a deer but also be shot 400 rounds per minute such as the AK-47 should not be allowed to own by a citizen.
Every year, thousands of people die senselessly around the world because of easy access to assault weapons. Assault weapons are semiautomatic high powered rifle with a detachable magazine; examples are AK-47s and Uzis. These weapons pose a threat to the safety of our citizens and law enforcement officers alike, and therefore should be banned. History tells the story of these weapons being the weapon of choice in mass shootings, illegal drug operations and bank robberies. These military style weapons are made for combat and should not have a place on ourstreets.
