John, you are correct in everything you say, but unfortunately, like all too many gun owners you are missing the true significance of the 2nd Amendment. It was the late gun writer Chuck Karwan who opened my eyes to the fact that AK-47s, M-16s, machine guns--weapons of war--are precisely what the 2nd Amendment is all about! It states: “a well-regulated militia (that word that the left has managed to demonize) being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It does not mention or allude to sporting equipment in any way; nor is The Second Amendment even primarily about self or home defense. Rather, it is about “we the people” retaining the means to protect our freedom.
