Founding Fathers like George Washington may have understood that an armed citizenry would have prevented government tyranny in the 18th century, but given the types of weapon systems available to our government these days (drones, tanks, missiles cluster bombs, etc.), it is beyond naive to think that a citizenry armed with common handguns and hunting rifles could mount a meaningful defense against a crackdown by the U.S. military. Ergo, the primary rationale for the Second Amendment has fallen by the wayside a long time ago.
