Written on 18th Century Flintlocks vs The 21st Century AR-15 (Guns in 21st Century America ):

Mr. Yurko, your premise is neither original nor correct.

In the Heller case, the majority opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court described it as "bordering on the frivolous":

"Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivo­lous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment. We do not in­terpret constitutional rights that way. Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications, e.g., Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U. S. 844, 849 (1997), and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, e.g., Kyllo v. United States, 533 U. S. 27, 35–36 (2001), the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding."
