Many of us are using our brains. The second amendment is just as important today and means the same thing as it did when written. The authors had the foresight to look ahead many years and see that our government could become opressive and citizens would need the means to defend themselves. My personal feelings are that any citizen, who has never been convicted of a felony involving a firearm, should have the right to posess any type weapon that he/she wants. If the time ever comes when citizens must fight against a well armed government, military type assault weapons will be much more effective than single shot .22 rifles. People with ideas like yours are very, very dangerous. I seriously doubt if you are a military veteran, as your opinion would be considerably different.
