"and permission was given to introduce such rifles and ammunition into the district for sale"
[The Sun, New York, Thursday, August 17, 1899. Vol. LXVI.--No. 351. Pg. 2]
The arrogance of our government is despicable. Thinking that they actually have the authority to 'permit' someone to have access to the means of defense? Especially when considering the FACT that they were expressly forbidden from interfering with that specific right in any way, shape, or form. Alaska had been purchased by the United States from Russia in 1867. So the U.S. Constitution was most definitely in force there.
