We are getting rather far afield here. As a reminder, the original post was:

Quote:
What DID the Founding Fathers really mean?

I recently had interaction with a younger member of our society. They posed this platform for which I have meager reply.

"The framers of the Constitution had never even imagined assault weapons that can slaughter hundreds of people in mere minutes. --- Their wording related to private citizens having the right to have simple weapons of that time in their homes."

I have searched TFL in depth and find no good replies. I ask for assistance on historical documentation from our Founding Fathers. What did they envision for our Right to bear arms? The Militia Act of 1792 is as good as I can find.
Let's get back to the original topic, please, and not wander off into discussions of political movements and philosophies.
