Our ruling

Biden said, “You weren’t allowed to own a cannon during the Revolutionary War as an individual.”

The campaign was unable to come up with an example of a law banning private ownership of cannons, and historians of the period doubt that any existed. To the contrary, there are documented instances of privateers, or privately owned vessels, setting sail with cannons during the period.

We rate the statement False.

So, we can own cannons now?
