No. You're completely wrong. The founders realized that they won their freedom because they were able to mount a successful fight against the crown solely because they had firearms. The real reason the 2nd amendment came about was to prevent a repeat of a tyrannical government taking away the people's hard won freedom. Thus today, when we see and out of control central government appearing to infringe on our rights we send a message thru our purchases that we won't be rolled over like other fallen societies.
