It wasn't missed cause they made sure to say that the weapons were returned to the armory. The problem is that that was then and this is now. Things back then were simpler and there was an obvious line that patriotic people knew shouldn't be crossed by govt. Today with our govt embracing openly an anti democratic republic stand, which is not a democracy, has blurred the line and leaves most confused as to how far they can go in order to save their country, while properly acting within and defending the constitution.
