the Second Amendment of the Constitution is NOT ABOUT hunting or sporting. it's about the people retaining the ability to "alter or to abolish" a government gone bad,as written in the Declaration of Independence. the Founders had just overthrown their own incumbent government (Britain) by FORCE OF ARMS,and recognized that it might have to be done again in the future,thus the inclusion of the 2nd Amendment protecting the People's right to keep and bear arms. The American Revolution BEGAN when the Brits moved to confiscate arms at Concord. the people (in militia) responded with privately owned arms.

I have for decades been warning gun owners not to be entrapped by the argument that guns are for hunting, sport shooting, or collecting. Instead, they are needed for much larger things; they are the teeth of the Bill of Rights. The Left has been attempting to eliminate hunting for decades, and if sportsmen's only defense of firearms is that they are needed for hunting, then all the Left has to do to eliminate firearms is to eliminate hunting. No hunting, no guns. It's all a trap to get people thinking wrongly about what the 2nd Amendment is all about.

I wold argue that the British authority was overthrown with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The war that followed was, in effect, an invasion of a sovereign nation (or nations). Same with the "Civil" War. The only difference was that the colonists won, and the confederates lost.
