Yes, in fact, that is exactly what the writers of the Constitution
"No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The
strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep
and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves
"The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone
is able may have a gun."
Somehow idiots think that "the people
" referred to by the second amendment are not the same people referred to in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, ninth and tenth amendments.
And while not writers of the original document, I believe this quote says something important.
"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept,
and wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the
United States, as well as its interpretation by every major
commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification,
indicates that what is protected is an individual right
of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner."

And, finally, pretty much directly refuting your claim that the writers of the Constitution didn't intend for actual citizens to own guns,
"The Constitution shall never
be construed to authorize Congress to infringe
the just liberty
of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent
of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping
their own arms."

the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 1886-1887
Thank you, and good night.
