i believe the founding fathers meant to include the most up to date firearms of the time in the second amendment, and that includes our time as well. the founding fathers knew that weapons evolve, they saw it in their lifetimes. why would people of today that revere the founding fathers for their foresight in their writings believe that there would be no advances in weaponry and the second amendment would not include modern arms as well? should the 2nd amendment include future weapons like lasers, partical beams, even marvin the martins ray gun? i say yes. it is not the type or style of weapon the second amendment refers to, it is the absolute right of people to be able to own these weapons.
