    I am curious though, would any of you change your mind if this was a poll for
    "Would you like to see the govt confiscate legally obtained/owned Rocket Propelled Grenade Launchers and .50 caliber weapons?"
    Personally there are some weapons the average person shouldn't be allowed to own.
    I have no issue with a legally owned .50 caliber rifle. In fact I have friends that own them. The don't fire them often because of the cost but they are very fun to shoot. I have no reson to own a Rocket propeled grenade launcher but also have no issue with a responsible law abiding person owning one.

    I agree that arms as intended does not include artillery or ordnance

    but tell me where did the constitution give the federal government to regulate what arms or artillery or ordnance a citizen might own?

(A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.)
    that makes as much sense as saying if you want freedom of speech then you should be a member of the press

    the asshole I shot years ago was with a pistol that came with a 12 round magazine-my backup magazines were 15 rounds since it was a compact version of the standard size 5906 SW

    There is one natural limit to all rights. You may not infringe upon the rights of others in the exercise of your rights.

    Founders could own cannons.

    Perhaps you should start such a thread and find out.

    There are weapons the government shouldn't be allowed to own. Tell you what, after you confiscate those, we can talk about restricting the People.

    Most gun owners are not Elmer Fudd. If Buggs Bunny and Daffy Duck had at least a hand gun it would have evened out Fudd's rifle. Would have made a different sort of cartoon but from my point of view my life is not supposed to be someones entertainment and I must have the right to defend myself with whatever weapon that I can afford against those who mean me ill.
