    you appear to be terrified guns unless only the government owns them
    It appears I have to say it again: I have no problem with civilians owning guns for hunting and/or owning pistols/handguns for self defense.

    You obviously missed ecofarm's post that contained the following: "Some weapons are tools of the state and do not belong in the hands of private individuals. The founders knew this and thus specified "A... militia" not "a private army and navy"."

    The question is too vague to be answered in any meaningful way. It's like asking if fast cars should be banned. How fast is fast? What type of fast? top speed? acceleration? cornering?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I have mixed feelings about the current Class III situation.

    On the one hand, I think some restrictions of the weapons covered under Class III, which include machine guns and support weapons of unusual destructive potential, might pass Strict Scrutiny as an essential societal good. However other aspects of Class III are, IMO, excessively broad and restrictive.

    I support restrictions on explosives ordinance, since explosives are indiscriminately destructive and can be dangerous if stored improperly.

    As for full-auto weapons, I think some of the restrictions under the current Class III system should be loosened.


    It's a grey area and one I feel conflicted about, as I said.

    Neither does your failure to specify exactly what constitutes a "military grade firearm", or why they must be restricted as an essential societal good.

    And how would you suggest the question be worded so that those who don't have extensive firearm expertise could still participate in a meaningful discussion with those who do?

    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    I am not sure, frankly. How do you propose to determine what firearms you wish restricted or banned if you cannot describe their features accurately?

    There are many subjects of political contention in which some basic knowledge of the subject is all but required for any intelligent discourse to take place.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
