As I said before in another thread. I'm not comfortable with government being able to own weapons that the public cannot. I believe in the idea that the public, should be they be able to afford to purchase it, should be able to own any weapon that those who rule over them can own.
If it's too dangerous for the public to own, then it's too dangerous for those who make the laws to own. Otherwise what is there for us to resist against oppression?
I would gladly support a ban on all projectile weapons, so long as the government, local PD and up, unilaterally disarm as well.
Floppin...I like a lot of your posts but this one is bad. This kind of thinking has no place in a civilized society today. It represents paranoid, backward thinking. Give nutcases the same access to weapons that the screened military/public officials have. Explain that to the people in Conn who lost a loved one.
