    If I change a few small parts in any ar-15 type carbine, When I put my booger hook on the bang switch it will fire full auto.


    This is why those parts in todays world are considered the same as having a "machine gun" or a NFA restricted weapon.





    Actually the point of the thread was to see who thought that the average citizen should be allowed to have VX, Ebola and Nuclear weapons. You should look up the discussion with Voidwar. He thinks that the average citizen should be allowed to have those three. You assume too much.
    Then why did you add al the ambiguous and ignorance revealing options?


    And I seriously doubt you have your own business. But that's neither here nor there.


    Go ask Lerxst, I think he can verify, as could several other posters. Yes, in the Good Reverend's world, you would be the help

    I'm completely in favor of people owning handguns and rifles for recreation or defense purposes, but nobody needs to plant mines in their front yard to ward off would-be trespassers.

    I don't understand why anyone would want a jet, or missle launcher, or any other "heavy" weaponry other than to feed the fantasy of actually being able to fight the government by force if it ever turned totalitarian.

    Well of course the weapons would be desired by someone who thought they needed to take out those kinds of threats.

    For the sake of the argument, let's take the Javelin for example. Can you think of a scenario where a private person would want to have that accessible?

    No reason that would be sane in my opinion aside from target practice on a decrepit car or other large object. Who doesn't like to see stuff blow up?

    Being in Texas, I hear a lot of talk here when I go out to eat about the government trying to take guns in order to control the public through military force. This is the only reason I can muster for someone to actually want an anti-armour missile system. The thought that a few rogue civilians can actually fight against the United States military is a pipe dream.
