What exactly were the colonists' reactions after the King issued the Proclamation of 1763?

I know "shocked" and "feeling like they can't doing anything without England stepping in" are the obvious ones, but was there anything really specific?

On the British side, I got that they issued it in order to avoid war with Native Americans and to concentrate on the land the colonists have now so that they could keep a close watch on them (the land is closer to the water, making it easier for the British to come and check).

Help please? Thanks!
