I completely agree with you. It is my opinion that the framers believed that people would look to become educated that do things like read the Federalist Papers that explain, not only the purpose of the 2nd Amendment, but other aspects of the decisions that went into crafting our Constitution. For all of their wisdom and intelligence, I don't think any of them envisioned a time when people were willfully uninformed and were willing to be subservient to a powerful Federal Government that the Framers worked to hard to prevent.
