The Framers intended clearly that the People retain the common militia arms of the day. Then is was swords, muskets, pistols a small CANNON. That's why you see so many old cannon in town squares. The modern equivalent is the MODERN MUSKET (the full-auto M-16 which is legal if rare), the modern horse pistol a Glock 21 in .45ACP or 9mm for those who squat to pee, and the cannon would be replaced by the Ma Deuce .50 caliber, the 37 mm light anti-tank cannon, the recoilless rifle and the mortar IF we were intellectually honest. The trouble is that the REAL purpose of the RKBA is so "icky" even to pro-gun folks. Ray from Bloombergia NRA Life Member Soli Deo Gloria!!!
