So in 1871 the NRA the same as it is today?
Funny didn't know machine guns, and 30 round magazines existed in 1871.
Wonder how many gun laws were on the books in 1871 compared to today.

Ah, so you agree that times have indeed changed, and you support the notion that the rules should change to reflect reality?
As you yourself have said, there were no machine guns in 1871, and people couldn't walk into a building and murder hundreds of people a minute.
The "rights" afforded to you were written in a time when such disgusting acts of mass murder could not possibly have been foreseen, and yet this
insanity is allowed to continue based on an outdated notion of what people back then experienced!
The world has changed, but far too many treat the constitution as a religious text, like Iranians stoning women in the square or hanging gay people
for their "crimes" it's used as an excuse for insanity.
The perceived "holiness" of the constitution is the problem here. It cannot remain untouched in this way and used as a defence against modern
thinking in a modern world where the fire-power of the citizen is so extreme.
