Anyone with just a little common sense knows that the 2nd Amendment applies to rifles, shotguns and pistols. However, artillery that is loaded from the muzzle and/or doesn't fire metal cased ammunition and doesn't have a recoil system is legal in the United States.
It would obviously be a bad idea for private citizens to own missiles with explosive warheads, exploding artillery rounds, cannon that can shoot explosive shells 20 miles at a high rate of fire, etc.
Now, if you would like to have a cannon that can shoot solid shot out to a mile, then just google it and I'm sure you can find someone to sell you one.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
