The Second Amendment is primarily about allowing American citizens to protect them selves from a takeover by a tyrannical government. Hunting and target shooting at the time were a given. The tyrannical government is getting closer every day, especially with idiots like Feinstein in charge. She was the same fool who a few days ago said, "We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines." Huh?

Perhaps Adam Lanza was not aware of that.
I've been waiting for Alex Jones to raise that issue. I would not put it past the current administration to do something like that. He only needs to replace two conservative justices with Young Turk Liberals in order to pack the court in his favor for the next 20 or 30 years.
