Certain military weapons shouldn't be available to the pubic.The whole second amendment argument is mute now. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".
These are words from the Constitution written in the 1700's..... wake up it's the 21st century;things have changed.We don't have need for 'militias' we have a standing armed force superior to any in the world.Superior to any militia you can muster up with any guns or weapons available at any outlet you have available to you.Ask the Branch Davidian's in Waco Texas how their fight against the federal government went. That may be hard,there's none of them who survived.
The old idea that we should stock up on weapons to protect ourselves from our government is a ridiculous argument in this modern era of military weaponry. There's a battleship offshore right now miles from your house that can fire on you.There are bombs that can penetrate your underground bunker dropped from a drone plane flying so high it can't be seen,I could go on and on.
It was decided in the 30's that certain weapons shouldn't be allowed when gangsters were wreaking havoc across the Midwest shooting up neighborhoods as they robbed banks indiscriminately.Before that you could go to your local hardware store and buy a Thompson .45 caliber machine gun.
Should we be able to buy weapons to protect ourselves surely we need those but clips that hold 60 rounds,no we don't need those.
.50 and.338 magnum caliber "reach out and touch you from more than a mile away" sniper rifles,no, we don't need those available to lunatics. The record for a sniper shot is 2707 yards that's 1000 yards over a mile. You would never hear the report before you died.
