The 2nd Amendment is NOT about hunting or anything else for that matter.
It is without any doubt all at, to guaranty the ability of THE PEOPLE to overthrow a tyrannical and out of control government should the need arise. Yes, this means killing people, sorry if I burst liberal's rose colored view of our country by yanking their head out of the sand and showing them the truth.
If that's it's purpose, it's pretty worthless in this country in this day/age. The government and it's armed forces have tanks, rocket launchers, fighter jets, smart bombs, nukes (not to mention training) etc...
Fat lot of good our minimally armed "well regulated militia" (lulz) will do.
Personal protection against the crime in our society is a much more relevant and pragmatic argument for the right to bear arms than the laughably antiquated and utterly asinine militia argument.
