    True, but dangerous, ineffective, but "legal" products can now be sold to the public. We need govt to prosecute the scammers and the crooks...
    A few years back some guy was selling light bulbs door to door, for the veterans, so he said. He claimed that these lights were more efficient that other incandescent lights and would save on our electric bill and last longer. All true, they were 130 volt 40watt light bulbs. My wife bought a box of them. They were low wattage crap.. and DIM.

    I did not state that something needs a benefit in order to be bought. I'm asking you directly what benefits you can identify. Because I can demonstrate the capability of significant damage by them in the wrong hands, if you can not name good reasons for a civilian to possess them then they should not be allowed to. There are clearly positive reasons for the military to have them, and thus only they should be allowed to possess them.

    If we are only speaking in a hypothetical sort of way, hand grenades would be handy for all citizens to own. It might make the government think twice before just breaking down the door to oppress you. I don't recall what the second item was, but perhaps reason given would fit for it. And, then there is the reason given in the Declaration of Independence.

    Ah, the other was crack. Well, one could be a liberal and the benefit might be the high. That should seem obvious to any liberal.

    Because it's in your picture, LesGovt, I'm curious if you agree that a lion at the zoo needs to be caged and understand why.

    You asked me to tell you the benefits of a freedom. I don't need to because freedoms don't need benefits.

    You clearly abuse the **** out of the word "freedom".

    No, I think I handle it with care. I punish you when you use to harm me, and don't when you don't. It just appears to me that you're mad at the idea because it blocks your controls.

    I can only laugh at you when you call restricting you from buying hand grenades "harming" you.
