    How about considering the period when that particular constitutional law was passed. Do you really think they would have passed that law, with assault rifles and, high powered pistols being readily available.
    Did the just pass that law because a muzzle loading rifle wasn't really all that dangerous to a group of people, in fact to make a muzzle loader a serious weapon of war you had to fit a bayonet to it and treat it like a spear.
    A right to carry a weapon is not a right to wield any and all available weapons.
    Isn't 9,369 fire arm related murders just a tad to many.
