Well at the time they did have more than muskets and flint locks. They also had artillery (field cannons, garrison cannons, howitzers, mortars). Perhaps you should know of what you speak PeggyJoy? You might also read some of Madison's and Jefferson's letters. Not to mention Adams documents of the period. They were distrustful of government and felt the people needed to be able to defend themselves from government as well as others with ill intentions. Funny how those without a logical argument resort to name calling. Fools indeed.
"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." 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Shall we pick and choose which amendment we agree with? I don't think we want other people determining for us what we 'need'. Perhaps someday, we won't 'need' to vote, or have free speech? If the founders really meant to limit arms, why didn't they make spell out the we could have rifles, but not cannons? They said 'arms'. Many do enjoy hunting with AR-15's. Some just want to collect them. Others just love to target practice. It is their business, Peggy Joy. Someone having different interests , doesn't make them insane.
I think Oreo Corp is a Key Bank subsidiary.
