What do you think the Second Amendment is for? It seems the talking heads on TV think it's all about hunting and protecting yourself from crime. That was not the main intent of the Amendment. It was meant as a last line of defense for the people against the Government. I have also heard a lot of talk about how it's suppose to be part of a regulated Militia. That may well be true, but our all knowing all powerful Federal Government has effectively did away with all Civil Militia's. The National Guard is nothing but a play thing of the Military. The people have no effective protection against the Government other than arming themselves. I just think no matter where you come down on the gun debate, you should understand that the main intent of the 2nd was as a check against the Government.
