Parker vs DC, DC Circut Court decision page 22:

"To determine what interests this pre-existing right

protected, we look to the lawful, private purposes for which

people of the time owned and used arms. The correspondence

and political dialogue of the founding era indicate that arms

were kept for lawful use in self-defense and hunting." :p

The Parker ruling is great because it talks about (paraphrasing) guns having a broad civic purpose. They mention self-defense and hunting as two examples of this civic purpose, but they leave it openly defined. That's a very good way to look at it.
