So, fully automatic weapons are not required for hunting, right? Your argument is grounded in the false belief that weapons are only for killing animals. The 2nd Amendment was not written to guarantee the right to hunt; it was written to inform the government that it must not step out of bounds with respect to the Constitution. A government of the people, by the people, and for the people is nothing if the people are disarmed. Automatic weapons should not be banned, nor should there be unusual restrictions placed upon them.
