Of course

But no one on this planet is saying you need to defend yourself with a musket.

I don't know what the founding fathers thought about weapon advancement. I would assume they knew it would advance; but they could never have predicted it would advance so far.

We can literally kill everyone in a matter of hours. The world is different than 1776. The founding fathers have been dead for two centuries. Let them go, their graves have been stood upon for far too long.
