    Re: Gun Ownership

    In the grand scheme of things I really don't have a big problem with civilians owning artillery, heavy weapons, bombers and aircraft carriers either. Hell, there are already people that own WWII era bombers and fighters. I would be a little hesitant to afford the general public access to nuclear arms and other heavy munitions though I really don't have a problem with people owning the equipment which launches such objects.

    Personally, I'd really like to own a battleship and have someone let me "borrow" a couple of dozen 16" shells and a few tons of powder.

    I would draw the line at fully automatic rifles like the military uses. Civilians should not have access to military ordnance or heavier weapons.
    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.

    Damn, I really want an auto-cannon, but I think that's where I would draw the line.

    Current (federal) measures are fairly okay. Weapons of mass-murder (artillery, etc.).... Yeah, I would keep those out of the General Pop's hands and require some fairly thorough liscencing laws, but leave them legal.

    as a base level-every weapon that any civilian employee of the government (state or federal) can use because the state has decreed those weapons useful for self defense in urban areas.

    when you get to individually used and issued military weapons the area becomes a little more murky.


    weapons that do have international or interstate ramifications, I believe the federal government has a power to restrict (Nukes, bio weapons, poison gas etc)

    Re: Gun Ownership

    If I could edit this poll, I would change the last option so that WMD's are not included (of course, some people feel the definition of WMD is open to interpretation.) Anyway, people who choose the last option should be those who believe that civilians should be allowed to own weapons that are used exclusively by the military and don't fall into any of the other categories.
