The Second Amendment was not inserted into the Constitution to guarantee the right to hunt! It was always meant to guarantee that tyranny by big government could never destroy the liberty of the common man by assuring them the permanent and unencumbered right of individual self protection. The right to keep and bear arms is nothing less than the right to protect oneself from the tyranny of the state, especially the heavily armed and omnipotent police state.
The Founders knew that too much power concentrated in the hands of a few, would ultimately lead to the type of crisis in confidence that we face today, and provided the means to defend the republic against all form of tyranny. If we fail to understand that America is truly under assault from enemies......both foreign and domestic, and that a fundamental aspect of self defense is the right to resist when tyrants are staring us squarely in the face.
