Kinda hard to go on a shooting spree in a theater when you could only fire one round every 45 seconds. Seeing an AK47 on full auto would've made George Washington shit his pantaloons.
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.
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

Excellent depiction of getting ready for battle at sea
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. Ladles were originally used to load powder; after cartridge bags came into use, they were used to extract loads from muzzle-loaders without firing.
