The 2nd amendment was not meant for hunters, it had 3 purposes.
#1 to protect your family from attack
#2 to Protect your state from external attack
#3 to protect your state from internal attack
that’s it, plain and simple. now to protect yourself and your sate you require weaponry at least equal to the attacker. No owning an AR-15 is not usually for hunting, it is for the 3 reasons above. You have to remember, when the state takes great pains to take away your right to defend yourself, the state will eventually become a police state.
The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
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.
This gun grab goes on every time some sick individual goes off the reservation. The Dems had their time that they could have enacted all kinds of gun control laws and they didn’t. Now if there is something that is common sense, that would actually do something, that is already not in the laws, I am all ears. Banning and denying are not the answer right now. If they make a law in haste that is based on the moment we are all sure to be worse off then if nothing was done. Sit, think , pray, discuss, and then make sure it is right and not against the constitution, and you may get it right.
a Post script:based on some chat:
Did you know that the state raising the age for gun ownership is against federal law? There is a federal law that says that all forms of the militia are all males aged 17-45. now does this just mean the states militia? nope. it includes all males. its 10 usc 246. now why would they make a law like that? so that you could be called to defend your state from any invasion, both foreign and domestic. they didnt want to take people from their jobs for the militia so there is what is called the unorganized militia. and they also define the national guard as a seperate entity. This made sure that the state would have people with guns available on a moments notice.
