Vox Media explains the importance of making change to Second Amendment rights in the United States by showing the evolution of the speed in firearms.

As the right to bear arms was written during a time when guns could only shoot up to three bullets a minute, Vox shows how dangerous the weapons this can be with modern day technology. With gun control legislation a topic of high importance in the USA following the Orlando tragedy, Vox argues for change to Second Amendment rights in a way that's both simplistic and eye-opening.

The video compares four different models of firearms throughout, beginning with a revolver handgun, then a Glock 17, a Colt M4 rifle and ending with the revolutionary-era musket. With this, Vox makes clear the differences in time -- showing that the guns that the Second Amendment gave access to are nothing like they used to be and insinuating that the constitution should be adjusted to reflect this.
