There is also something radically democratic about firearms that explains their singularly explosive growth in the West. Guns destroy the hierarchy of the battlefield, marginalizing the wealthy mailed knight and rendering even the carefully trained bowman ultimately irrelevant.

It is interesting that the founders of the United States thought the same thing, creating the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution to protect the rights of the people, in other words, democracy.
