    I have to wonder how the Ukraine situation would diferent had that people not been denied the basic human right to keep and bear modern arms.

    And also, how the Israel situation might differ if they denied civilians the right to keep and bear.

    Could you list some examples of type, models and caliber that were designed as "people punchers " ?

    An AR-15/M-16 is chambered for a cartridge that was designed and intended to be used for shooting ground hogs and other varmints not people.
    See you'd have to have gone through special ops training to learn that. So if we tell you, we have to kill you.

    Unfortunately, using that is the only reason is overgeneralizing. You could use it to show equal justification for carrying around a flamethrower or keeping a backyard silo.

    Missle silos are legal to own. In fact Clinton had the AirForce sell several to private buyers for about $1-3mil each. Today they're used by a veriaty of diferent civilian owners for everything from science labs to 'prepers'.

    A construction trend amung the rich in Europ is to build down. Many rich homes have 2-4 stories underground, to include whole tennis courts and race tracks.

    Any given person has a "flamethrower" sitting in their cabinet.

    A silo is for storing grain, I didn't think anybody needed to justify that with an amendment.

    But that is the justification for having guns, like it or not. It wasn't about hunting, or self defense. If you don't like that, I am sorry.

    Slow down, there; your coherence is breaking up at a critical rate.

    So much so that your own statements can be used against you, like this: "Oh sure; like 'any' person has a class-3 firearm sitting in their cabinet."
    And of course, you know that some silos hold missiles instead of grain...
