Our founding fathers did not enact the second amendment for hunters, although it protects their right to own guns as well. They enacted the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of the citizens to own weapons to protect themselves from government tyranny.
The current attempt to argue that it was for hunting is preposterous! At the time the founding fathers enacted the Constitution of the United States and the 2nd Amendment as part of the Bill of Rights guns for hunting were part of everyday life. They would have had no reason to believe that one would need to have their possession of hunting weapons protected. However, they did have experience with tyranny and the need for the citizen to have protection from an over reaching government.
