There are a lot of clueless people here. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting or target shooting. It was placed by patriots who had just fought a war to free themselves from an oppressive government. These patriots were wise enough to know that even the government that they were so carefully crafting could one day become so oppressive that the citizens it ruled would need to throw it off. If the 2nd Amendment goes, which one would you like to see scrapped next?
