Many may not remember their basic U.S. history courses as to why the Second Amendment exists in the first place. Certainly, when enacted, there was no thought of restricting the type of firearm or where or who could carry one. So its placement as the second most valued freedom in the Bill of Rights had nothing to do with personal safety or hunting —these were already assumed. It was specifically placed right after freedoms of religion, speech, press, and assembly to make certain that these freedoms were never taken from us. It was aimed (pun intended) squarely at the government. But certainly we have no fear of the government today, right?

This is good news to the growing number of people who own semi-auto modern sporting rifles built on the AR platform. This happens to be the most popular rifle in the country, and has been for the past several years.
