Second Amendment was written for a different time

I often wonder how the Second Amendment might have been worded in 1791 if our founding fathers could have looked into a crystal ball to see modern guns and how easily they are acquired by almost any mentally unbalanced individual, as well as “normal” people who sometimes can’t control their anger. At that time guns were muzzle-loaders and it would take an expert probably a minute to shoot, clean the barrel and then reload with powder and ball.

Even a bump stock would not have facilitated the killing process.
