    No. They don't fall under the category of "guns," they fall under the category of "explosives." Military grade explosives should be illegal.

    I think we've had a couple of people argue that they should; don't ask me why. It pisses me off when people bring up nukes in a discussion about ammo, guns, the 2A, etc.... because the one has NOTHING to do with the other. Equating nukes and guns is so far beyond the bounds of reason that I totally don't get it.

    From a tactical perspective, a rifle caliber carbine is better anyway. The worry with an SMG is that someone will stick one under their trench coat and open fire on a crowd, but a shotgun works just as well or better for that, so it's a moot point.

    What sort?

    There's smoke grenades and flare grenades, which surely should be legal.

    There's flash-bangs (stun grenades) which probably should be legal. Tear gas and OC sure.

    There's concussion grenades.... well maybe Class III in my opinion....

    There's frag grenades, those are the ones that are really dangerous, yeah I'm okay with seriously restricting those. Thermite, phosphorous....

    agree, thermite are designed to destroy cannon so it cannot be used by the enemy

    Phosphorous has no legitimate purposes in a civilian environment-its arguably a chemical weapon

    I agree up to flash-bangs, I think they fall under concussion grenades, but that is just what I have read about them. They are definitely a tactical grenade just as a concussion is. Care to shed some light on this?

    Re: Ammunition

    Personally, I don't know of any type of small-arms ammunition that I feel should be banned. That doesn't mean that some doesn't exist though, but I consider it unlikely.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    well I could see drawing the line on say cyanide tipped bullets or the things the Mobile Infantry Had in Starship Troopers
