The textile workers strike was a fast moving guerrilla war between working people, factory owners private armies and state militias, police and U.S. Army units across most of the Eastern United States.
A few machine guns were used in that strike. But guns were strictly regulated in the twenty and thirties. Most common autoloading firearms used today would be illegal in most states in 1934.
Modern day firepower, ammunition capacity and numbers of weapons per person in the United States now greatly exceed what was available to the people on all sides in the war on working people of 1934.
“The emergence of strong populist insurgencies in both parties has raised the hope that the two constituencies could be joined to create a genuine left-right populist alliance.
There are compelling arguments for and against this proposition. First, the case for a cross-party populist movement.”
