Bear Arms...Bare Arms...Arm Bears, whatever

Because of the recent controversy over "the right to bear arms" I visited our local gun shop The Old West Gun Room, in El Cerrito. They specialize in antique and modern firearms, including a wide range of handguns, rifles, and shotguns. They seem to have mostly antique models, but what do I know. I did a little sketching of a rack of rifles, but I found I was more interested in finding out what a firearm looked like in 1791, which is when the 2nd Amendment was ratified, so I looked it up on Google.

The shop's door handle is an old revolver, and the building is an interesting stone structure with a wavy roof.
