No! Only crazies own assault rifles.
No, they are too expensive!
No, no need to.
Yes, for self defense
Yes, for recreation and sport
Yes, to perform my patriotic duty if the nation is invaded
Yes, because it's my constiutional right
Yes, because I'm one of the CRAZIES!!! hahahahaha
if civilian cops can have certain weapons for self defense other civilians ought to be able to have them too since the governmental unit above both civilian cops and non LEO civilians have made an official pronouncement that the weapons it gives cops are suitable for self defense
but tell me how does the NATURE and USE of the weapon change?
how does a weapon go from being the ideal self defense weapon in a civilian jurisdiction and environment to being completely unsuitable for others to use in that same environment
