When the Second Amendment was written, the Founding Fathers could never have imagined today's modern weaponry or the carnage they make for ordinary citizens.
I doubt that the writers of the Constitution could even conceive of a “shooting spree”, and they almost certainly would have written this amendment differently had they had modern weapons to contend with. We are supposed to be smart people. We should be able to come up with some kind of modern version of this amendment that doesn’t suck.
Just because the 2nd amendment of the US Constitution says we have the right to bear arms, I am sure they had no clue about assault weapons, machine guns, and semi automatics. All they could do back then was load a rifle with gun powder. Times have changed and so does the Constitution. In the spirit of the Constitution I have no problem with someone owning a gun that was available in 1776...a black powder, muzzleloading flintlock...go for it..)

The Shot Heard Round the World occurred during a brief battle between British troops and local minutemen at the North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts. It took place April 19, 1775 after British troops encountered the local minutemen. The battle came to be known as the Battle of Concord. British soldiers were killed during the battle and it was considered the first victory for America’s independence. The battle kick started the Siege of Boston & Revolutionary War

Tools of the gunner's trade (not to scale). The sponge, moistened with water, extinguished sparks in the bore after firing. The worm cleaned unburned fragments of cloth powder bags from the bore.
