Business Insight The 4th Some of us will never forget this 2022 4th of July. Our most prized liberty and joy of celebrating as a community were disturbed by the cruel and criminal behavior of a young individual who decided to hate others. Our same liberties allowed him to make it war. As of today, 7 of our fellow Highland Park festival goers are gone. Their families will remain in grief for the rest of their lives. Many more will suffer psychological damage for years to come. And some others will be saying that this is the kind of liberty our Founding Fathers wanted for us. Not only is it not true, but further, our Founding Fathers had no idea how disturbed and troubled our society would be. Let me take you to 1790. The arms and guns used in 1790s were muskets and flintlock pistols. Muskets could fire up to 3 rounds within 1 minute. That is by a very skilled shooter. Hardly anybody stored them at home. Flintlock pistols were used for 1 shot, mostly during the duels. They were expensive and many people just could not get them. There were laws and restrictions during 1790s-gun times. All of privately owned guns had to be tracked and registered. There was no law of stand your ground but rather retreat law. The guns had to be stored unloaded at home. And most of all, there were loyalty oath laws: using any arm against Constitution was considered a treason. Some more 1790s. Communication was quite different than today. It was actually before the time of the first postal service. The way people communicated long distance was through the courier on a horse. This is about people who could pay the courier.
