Perhaps I can assist you in answering your own questions -I'm a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. So, within the confines of the law, a guy or gal should be able to hunt with a shotgun or rifle and to use a handgun in self-defense. Do you support the right for anyone to own any guy outside the confines of the law? Does your support for gun owners' rights extend to the guy with that Mac 10?
What in your opinion is the purpose of the Second Amendment?
Here's a little hint:
The reason the founding fathers considered it important to phrase the wording of the Amendment so specifically, had nothing to do with hunting.
Here's another hint:
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
