You know, I’m often amazed at some people’s belief that our Founders had NO IMAGINATION WHATSOEVER.
I mean, it’s easy for me (and the idiots) to imagine warp drive, laser guns, light sabres and the transporter, right? One day we may actually have some of these — we already have “communicators,” (cell phones) and “medical diagnostic tables” (MRI machines), do we not? Apparently, though, these same idiots do not believe that George Washington, while fighting a battle with a musket that took two minutes to load, ever said to himself, “Gee, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to shoot more than one bullet at a time before I had to reload?”
Well, I don’t believe it; it’s ridiculous on its face.

Just shows once again necessity is the mother of invention. The operating theories behind things taken for granted today such as TV, air conditioning, automatic transmissions, wireless communication that led to cell phone technology were understood over 100 yrs ago. I took decades of trial and error and scientific breakthroughs to make these things technically and economically feasible.

Avid inventors like Franklin and Jefferson would have instinctively known that weapons would continue to evolve just like they had done up to that point in history.
