Constitutions are meant to be hard to change. That being said, the time it was signed was a turbulent one and one that would mean a militia was necessary. The future would also ascertain to it. They didn't expect peace to last long back then, and it wasn't much of a reality until the end of WW2 for most countries.

As for whether or not they could predict changes in firearms, they couldn't. Go back in time and tell them large scale wars are long past due to bombs that can level countries, and the occasional skirmish is done by heat-seeking missiles and firearms that can fire over 200 rounds rapidly while still being quick to reload, and they'd find you nothing more than delusional.

The founding fathers remain what they are, merchants and intellectuals (for their time), who simply tried to form a state that would be free of the typical tyranny of the time. The US is a country that wasn't really meant to last, but survived against all the odds. Doesn't make the founding fathers any more intelligent, as they had views that are severely outdated today. Freedom for all? As long as they aren't slaves. Freedom of speech? As long as they aren't King's Men. They were men of their time, same as any man is. They were bleeding patriots, not fortune tellers.

If you think there isn't still a threat of the government becoming tyrannical, you're very naive. You're completely ignoring the entire idea behind the 2nd. It was put in place to give the people a way to fight the government should it become tyrannical. This means the people need to be able to take a stand against the military in that case. If all we had were muskets, do you really think we would be able to stand against the military?

It wasn't solely for muskets. It's a matter of understanding what comprehension the founding fathers would have of modern firearms, which is close to, if not equal to zero. Legislation has always been like that. When automobiles came around, the speed limit was close to 6 mph, seeing as they weren't very safe. Then they became safe, so they changed it. Although the legislation clearly states 'automobiles', not 'automobiles that are temporarily deemed unsafe', or specifying models. Laws change as time passes by, because we acknowledge that modern technology puts certain elements into perspective.

I will direct you to the fifth paragraph, starting with "Above and beyond that," and ending with "sought after at the time"
The constitution was designed differently than traditional laws. While your speed limits change, the constitution is a document designed with flexibility in mind but every part was heavily edited and thought out to ensure it lasted for centuries. To think that the founding fathers didnt see automatic weapons coming is simply delusional.
