    Not that I think it was about anything but Militias, but let's pretend we are in National Rampage Association crazy land...

    This is a Revolutionary War Era Musket. It could fire 2-3 rounds a minute in the hands of a trained infantryman. Accurate to only about 100 yards.

    This is a AR-15 Bushmaster.

    It can fire 45 Rounds per minute, and has a maximum effective range of 450 meters.

    Now, before one of you mutants gets on here and tells me, "Well, the First Amendment never considered Television", you are right.

    And we don't treat Television like the printed press. There are restrictions on what you can broadcast, when you can broadcast, and who can broadcast. More to the point, the Television industry largely self-regulates. they don't put commercials for Trojan condoms on The Hub kiddie network.

    Maybe the president shouldn't control the air force since there were no planes in 1776.

    Not sure what that had to do with anything I said, but okay, please go there.

    Incidently, the government DID make allowances for airplanes as part of the armed forces. They created the Air Force as a separate branch of the military and combined the Navy and War Departments into a unified "Department of Defense"....

    In short they ADAPTED to the technology.

    MOre to the point, if you use the logic of the National Rampage Association, private citizens should be able to have armed fighter craft... but I think the FAA would want to have a word with you if you tried that.

    At the time the 2nd was written, slavery was legal and women couldn't vote.

    I'll just go ahead and assume you support those as well.

    So the government can evolve in it's powers but the rights of the people have to be frozen in the 18th century?

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense.

    I don't give a rat's ass what the NRA does or says as I am not a member and never will be.

    But the citizenry DID have the same level of personal firearm as the military in many many cases.. which was more advanced than it was 100 or 200 years before that... they did know things advance, they were not stupid
