  • What types of weapons do you think you should be able to own?

    Personally I think I should be able to own any weapon that I can afford and learn how to use except for weapons of mass destruction, such as bombs, and chemical and germ stuff.

    What are some others thoughts?

      I want to own a small tactical nuclear device. If youre going to own something, go for the gusto.

      A flame thrower would also be neat.

        ANY hand held weapon.

        The extremely silly laws dealing with certain firearms in regards to pistol grips,stocks,bayonets,flash suppressors and magazine capacity and the notion that because of such they are somehow more dangerous than the rest has got to go.

        Laws dealing with "Saturday Night Specials" are inconsistent and just plain stupid.

        The magazine "ban" of the "Brady Bill" . The thought process that thinks a 10 round magazine is less dangerous than a 12 rounders is also lacking in common sense.

        Any "small arm" should be legal for any citizen of the United States to own. Of course those that see otherwise are plenty.

          Hmmm, perhaps a Howitzer... Yes, I can take it down to the beach on warm days, and fire off a few rounds into the oceans, maybe a house or two I don't like.

          Or just an M60 ('cause i'm modest), at the very least, if the popo ever get on my tail for some unpaid parking tickets...

              There is nothing like the smell of napalm in the morning. Napalm can solve a lot of housing problems.

                LOL was someone calling for me? LOL

                I think that any weapon your can prove to be sufficient with sould be allowed to be in your arsenol. I also think that if you have the brains to porcure and build a weapon of mass destruction and store it safely then you should be able to keep that too. If you have to go somewher and buy the instructions how to make it then you should not be able to keep it.

                  Actually, in Japan they have household flamethrowers. They seriously sell them and people use them to prune bamboo trees or some such thing. They're relatively small, but they do shoot flame none the less.

                  I think that people should be able to leagally own any type of firearm up to and including .50 cal sniper rifles. Maybe something bigger but anyghing that has a standard jacketed bullet of some sort. That includes having them registered/licensed/ etc. Violent criminals would be excluded as they are now. I would oppose allowing anyone to have pieces of field artillery. Unless they owned sufficient land on which it would be safe to fire it. No nukes. Even if you know how to build one. No chemical weapons even if you know how to make the chemicals.

                        And would they do other stuff as well for your, er, "private" enjoyment?

                          I feel that people ought to be allowed to carry and own any small arm that they want, though I gotta wonder about the flamethrowers. I mean, the idea behind the second is that we have the means to defend ourselves, especially in a war against a tyrannical government. I'm not sure of the combat effectiveness of a flamethrower...

                          But then again, if you want to walk around with jellied gasoline on your back in the middle of a firefight, you're welcome to do so...

                          Of course, I'm okay with some government restrictions...mostly on machineguns. I think the current system works alright, except that it ought to be "shall issue" for a Class III...You could probably make a good argument that a criminal with a fully automatic rifle would hit less than he would with a semi, but I still think there ought to be at least a small hurdle to owning those puppies...

                          Though the market is doing a good job of keeping them out of our hands anyway. It's not the class III license that keeps that M60 out of my hands, but the $13,000 price tag...

                          That being said, cosmetic changes are stupid and wrong. "Evil looking" is not the correct basis for a ban! Magazine restrictions are equally stupid; not only are there millions of legal hi-caps floating around, but a reload can be done in about a second. If someones incompetent enough to miss on the first ten, a spare is usually around the corner...

                            Whatever happened to the good old days of bastard swords and lucern hammers to get a job done right??
