      •  Yes, we did. (0+ / 0-)

        Funny thing though, it seems the Occupation wasn't so concerned with making sure Japanese had the right to keep and bear arms?

        Free expression.  In there.

        Freedom of religion.  Check.

        Judicial review.  Yes.

        Right to bear arms?  Nope.

        Must have slipped their minds.

          ....they lost the war.

          We (with the help of the French) won the Revolutionary War.

          Often, winners withhold some rights from the losers (esp. losers that attacked them without cause).

          I'm not sure what your point is.

          Just as Felons can't necessarily own firearms, another country that attacks and loses would expect that they would be subject to sanctions.
