A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Query:Had our forefathers been able to predict the evolution of arms (for example, the invention of powerful weapons, such as AK-47’s and even nuclear technology), would the second amendment be worded differently? If so, how? If not, why might an absolute freedom still be necessary?
