the only reason a government wants to ban a weapon is that its afraid the people will go against them. the purpose of the 2cd amendmant wasnt to give hunters guns it was to allow the people not to be governed by a tryrant. the idea was that each state had a militia to protect it.
The government isn't very afraid of anyone's semi-automatic weapons. They have fully automatic weapons. Also, who exactly is "the government"?
Yes, it was important for each state to have a militia in the 1780s. It was also important to salt your meat because otherwise it would spoil. Today we have freezers.
