A gun is a projectile weapon. It launches one or more projectiles from a tube by means of gas. If the gas is produced by burning the gun is classified a firearm. If the gas is compressed by means of a spring or fed from a reservoir the gun is classified an air gun. Guns intended to be fired from …the shoulder and held by both hands are called long arms. Guns meant to be operated by a single hand and lacking a stock are called handguns. Guns firing multiple projectiles consecutively by a single action of the trigger are called machine guns. Large guns mounted on vehicles, ships or fortifications are called cannons. There are also tools that are called guns because of their shape and similarity of controls to a handgun. This would include nail guns, glue guns, caulk guns, staple guns and the like. ( Full Answer )

In the beginning American cookery was Native American. All products were natural; fish and game were plentiful and food that was not eaten fresh was dried or smoked. Although they brought things with them from the Old World and some different cooking methods aspects changed little for over a century… or two. William Byrd in his book "Natural History of Virginia" written in 1737 described the country as "the newly discovered Eden." He described a great deal about the quality and array of fruits and vegetables that were grown: "beautiful cauliflower...very large and long asparagus of splendid flower......watermelons and fragrant melons." as well as all sorts of squash, pumpkins, beans, apples, apricots, pears, plums, quinces, cherries, walnuts and much more. In another book the History and Present State of Virginia (1705) Robert Beverley described Native American cookery in some detail. He stated that fish were so plentiful before the English settled that children could take them with pointed sticks. So, things had all ready stated to change by 1705. The Native American influence on colonial cooking can not be measured, but it gave them new foods. Corn was one of the main things that was introduced to the settlers. They were taught how to grow it, prepare it for storage, and how to cook it. The English came to love corn and added it to their regular recipes for hearth cakes, puddings, and corn meal. They found it could be used instead of ground oats. Thus, johnny cakes were born as well as other dishes using corn. Potatoes, tomatoes, peanuts, chocolate, vanilla and peppers were also introduced to the colonies. The hunting of American animals and birds was also done. Slavery also brought it's own foods and dishes to the colonial diet. Many products that are seen as "southern cooking" came from Africa or by the way of Africa and the West Indies through the slave trade. Okra, gumbo, black eyed peas, benne beans, eggplant,watermelon, and the peanut. ( Full Answer )
A gun can either save a life or destroy a life. It depends on what you mean, and the previous answer is incomplete. Guns have various uses. Some people hunt with them, some people collect them, some people use them for target practice, some people use them to compete in shooting sports, and some p…eople use them for self defense, some people use them to rob or attack other people, or to kill people. And a point to remember- by itself, a gun does nothing. It is a man made object, neither good nor bad, and cannot act on it's own. For a gun to do anything, it requires the action of a person. Well said. It is a Tool. Same as a chainsaw, car, etc. ( Full Answer )

The most tangible colonial protes to the Townshend Act was the revival of an agreement not to import British goods, especially luxury products. The Non-importation agreement slowly grew to include merchants in all of the colonies, with the exception of New Hampshire. Within a year importation from B…ritain dropped almost in half. he American Colonists realized that they should not be taken for granted anymore. The wanted to be their own colony now. They hated the fact that everything they did was under the British government. So in order to try to make British lower taxes, they boycottehe colonists were tired of being taxed with no say in government. After their appeals and petitions were repeatedly denied by Parliament, the colonists began boycotting British goods.

We may have two two questions here- can you BUY a gun, and can you BUILD a gun? And the answer to both is: That depends. BUYING a gun depends on the laws where you live- your age, background, and the type of gun. In general, you will need to be an adult, without a history of criminal conduct or ment…al illness. BUILDING a gun requires tools and knowledge. While there have been (and in some places, still ARE) gunmakers that work with primitive tools, guns produce very high pressures when fired. A gun that is improperly fitted, or uses the wrong material can be very dangerous to the shooter. Rather than give you instructions, and then lay awake at night wondering if you still have your fingers, I am going to refer you to the closest library. Ask your librarian for a book on gunmaking, and learn some of the work that goes into building a good quality firearm. By the way- in most of the US, it is perfectly legal to build your own gun IF you are an adult, and not prohibited from owning guns. It may not be a restricted firearm, such as a machinegun or short barreled shotgun (they require special permits)- but many people build their own handguns and rifles. ( Full Answer )

Boats can go up the rivers from the ocean to the fall line. They stop there. That is how they got to the Piedm…ont Plateau. Some supplies were reloaded on boats on the other side of the falls. Some places had locks built around the falls. ( Full Answer )
Colonists are those who are dependent or like to act superior. They use their colonies for business/trade or implant their own culture on them.

Colonists, such as the European people who colonised the American continent, believed they had the right to settle in those lands because they were "unclaimed" by anyone else (e.g. not part of another European state). Generally speaking they did not recognise any native American countries and also c…onsidered it a divine obligation to impose the Christian religion on the "uncivilized" and "pagan" native people of America who would otherwise live damned lives of ignorance and barbarity. Of course, viewed with modern morality, the colonists had no "right" to take other peoples lands. ( Full Answer )
