    3% is the percentage of the population that actually were active participants in the Revolutionary War.Some were Loyalists,most just went about thier business.

    “During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King … and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came. Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the american people, although we might. … We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of american gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people.” (02/17/09)
