Do you think our forefathers had current guns in mind when writing the 2nd Amendment?

This is a thought that popped into my head while I was reading some other threads on this board. Don't get me wrong, I'm not asking this in any way to advocate any type of anti-gun mindset. I'm just truly curious. When the Bill of Rights was first written, firearms were so primitive that an armed person would be lucky to kill two people before someone could get to him and stop him. Now one person can kill 30 people without anyone getting close to him. Do you think that that would have made a difference when the Bill of Rights was written or do you think it would have come out exactly the way it did?

Again, I'm not in any way advocating anti-gun thoughts. I just want to know everyone's opinion on this.
