When the second amendment was brought in, Our military had muskets firing black powder and lead balls. Citizens had those same weapons. "Same weapons" has never changed and should not change! We may need them!
Our country and forefathers realized the need for citizen's to be able to protect themselves from government as well as not so nice other citizens and wild animals.
Throughout our history, as the military got better weapons, they also were also available to the citizens. Colt 45's, sharp's rifles that could shoot many rounds and then right on up through the years.
The first long rifle I shot was a 22 single shot. The second was a M1 from WW2. Not really that much difference for aiming and shooting, but more powerful.
