"Well regulated MILITIA" were not formed to HUNT.<quoted text>I doubt in the 1700's they saw this coming. The massacres, etc..they would change their tune. They were probably talking mostly about shooting their game for food with rifles.
They were however formed to protect America from any threat...foreign or domestic! You do not exempt MY God Given right to protect my own life or that of MY FAMILY based upon the actions of a lunatic/criminal. There will ALWAYS be a nut who will harm others with any means available to them. After natural disasters looters will out number Police, you gonna face 30 or forty desperate people to protect your families bottled water? Powdered milk? canned goods? with a semi auto pistol and 10 round magazine?
I would have multiple high capacity mags for my mini 14, my trusty .45, and a 9mm FS92 as my back up (in a boot holster).
