The American Revolution against British Gun Control

This Article reviews the British gun control program that precipitated the American Revolution: the 1774 import ban on firearms and gunpowder; the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of violence to effectuate the confiscations. It was these events that changed a situation of political tension into a shooting war. Each of these British abuses provides insights into the scope of the modern Second Amendment.

Furious at the December 1773 Boston Tea Party, Parliament in 1774 passed the Coercive Acts. The particular provisions of the Coercive Acts were offensive to Americans, but it was the possibility that the British might deploy the army to enforce them that primed many colonists for armed resistance. The Patriots of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, resolved: "That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to heaven and our rifles." A South Carolina newspaper essay, reprinted in Virginia, urged that any law that had to be enforced by the military was necessarily illegitimate.

The Royal Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, had forbidden town meetings from taking place more than once a year. When he dispatched the Redcoats to break up an illegal town meeting in Salem, 3000 armed Americans appeared in response, and the British retreated. Gage's aide John Andrews explained that everyone in the area aged 16 years or older owned a gun and plenty of gunpowder.

I'm curious if this happened today, would most Americans sit back and watch on Twitter?
  Are the people that would stand up and defend the 2nd amendment a small minority?

"As the war went on, the British always remembered that without gun control, they could never control America. "

There have been people trying to control our guns since before the revolution and they are STILL at it.  They are steady pounding away at it, stand your ground.
  

Sometime, ONLY a gun can stand between good and evil.

And as it turns out, the Democrats are the best gun salesmen there is.  The National Shooting Sports Foundation reports there are 16 million privately owned AR-15s in the U.S.

It is going to be many more. Prices for AR's are already rising across the Internet as sales are climbing.

If only 10% of the current crop of AR owners decide to stand their ground, that is 1.6 million patriots.
