Reasons for Extending the Militia Acts to the Disarmed Counties of Scotland

Excerpt from Reasons for Extending the Militia Acts to the Disarmed Counties of Scotland One objection however I must except from this number, because it has been frequently urged by some gentlemen, of whose integrity and love of their country I am well assured. It is this. Will it not be dangerous to train to the exercise of arms, the inhabitants of those counties disarmed by act of parliament, upon account of their known disaffection to the present royal family? What proofs are there of their principles being changed? or what security have we, that, when provided with arms, and taught the use of them, they will not again rebel, and once more attempt to subvert our liberties and government? This argument has little weight with me, who am thoroughly acquainted with the sentiments of the disarmed part of Scotland; yet, as it seemed to stumble the gentlemen who used it, and may perhaps make some impression upon others, I shall suggest some few facts, which I flatter myself will weaken, if not totally destroy its force. This opens a field of very important inquiry, which demands to be discussed at some length; I hope, therefore, the reader will pardon me should I detain him longer than either he or I could wish. I address myself only to the serious and inquisitive. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
