    I think when we're talking hand grenades and recoiless rifles, we're not talking basic self defence. I think that falls under the "security of a free state" category.

    Edit: I presume here that you are asking about weapons with good magazine capacity and ability to fire many rounds rapidly (whether semi-auto or auto).

    Not at all sure why you're calling those "people punching guns". Quite nonsensical.

    I've made an open invitation for someone to come up with a better term. So far, everyone's copped out or been silent...

    There is already accurate terminology, your was just a meaningless one; No one is copping out of anything.

    Any term is better than a meaningless one. The Mark was right, "quite nonsensical."

    Show me where in the 2A there is a ban on them.

    Read for yourself, and learn by yourself.

    It should be fairly clear from the text you quoted that I never said there was. Whether there should be is a completely different question.
