Hi. Enjoyed the article. In the bard’s time, many failed gun control acts were pushed on the common people. Mostly only landowners with large holdings were licensed to carry and use firearms. But most were ignored by the hungry population. Also, the longbow was the English weapon of choice, so firearms were discouraged, the better to practice the bow for war. The rich had wheellocks, pistols and muskets, and the snaphaunce was developed as a cheaper alternative. The poor had a matchlock , simple and easy to make!
