The Bill of Rights did not provide a provision on the right to bear arms so that Americans could go hunting. The Second Amendment was about protection, not just for the states from foreign invaders, but also for protection from the federal government.
The Supreme Court has ruled by dicta (United States v. Verdugo-Irquidez) and by direct opinion (District of Columbia v. Heller) that the right to bear arms belongs to individuals.
