Before I begin: This letter concerns gun control, but please don’t “turn off.” No one is trying to take away your guns. The writers of the Bill of Rights weren’t referring to military grade weapons when they wrote about the right to bear arms. They weren’t talking about cannons—they were talking about single repeat weapons to be used for self defense or hunting.

Ed.: They were, in fact, talking about cannons and warships as well.

Actually in the vernacular of the late 1700s, "arms" were man-portable, common infantry weapons. "Ordnance" were cannon, etc.

There was no such thing as "military grade weapons" back then. There was no "mil spec" for weapons. The flintlock muskets the red coats had were the same muskets the Colonials had, for hunting deer.....or redcoats.
In fact, colonials had rifled muskets too. We just call them rifles. The British hated that since they were much more accurate than smooth bore muskets.
And the founders expected the populace to be as well armed as an army. It wasn't about shooting Bambi.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
