If Founding Fathers Knew The Horror of Gun Violence in the Future,..No 2nd Amendment.....

Or worded in a totally different way. These people who founded this country and created the U.S.
Constitution were very smart. While they may have imagined a larger country, they could not
imagine that gun ownership would cause the problems that it presently cause. And the availability
of guns is what it is. It is my deepest opinion, that if they knew what gun ownership is causing today, no 2nd Amendment at all, or something totally different to control gun ownership.
...Remember, we had won the Revolutionary War about 10 years earlier, gun ownership was part of
winning that war. The thought may have been: "If we need to fight again, we need everyone to be
prepared for the next war."
...I doubt that anyone could look into the future and see young kid buying a automatic weapon and shooting up a number of people, since there were no automatic weapons back then. Also, gun ownership was a different
kind of deal back then. (No police, all kinds of animals at loose, fear of Native Americans, and so on)
