Never thought this one would end up in the open domain, so here it is.
‘Gun control’ has had a long history:-
“The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other type of arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues and tends to permit uprising, therefore, the heads of the provinces, official agents, and deputies are ordered to collect all weapons mentioned above and turn them over to the government.”
-Toyotomi Hideyshi, Shogun, August 29, 1558
