If you think about it, firearms evolved tremendously from the writing of the 2nd amendment through the end of the civil war. Yet, I know of no mention or proposal of "gun control - disarming the citizens" following the civil war.
The first gun control laws were written to prohibit slaves, and later, "freedmen" from owning firearms. The "freedmen" prohibitions were written after the Civil War ...... if you don't know about them, you have not looked very hard.
