    Loaded poll/thread.

    But I will go with it. Excluding the machine guns, hand guns and rifles the rest on the list is price prohibitive even if they were legal. Not to mention the risk of a biological/chemical weapon accidentally deploying, the cost and man power to collect the materials, build and ultimately launch a nuclear weapon, it is not something you can just do from your backyard by yourself.

    I bet the OP and others that share his/her position forget the fact that after the cold war ended thousands of military arms including about a half dozen nuclear weapons were unaccounted for and now proliferate the black-market.

    All rational action is in the first place individual action. Only the individual thinks. Only the individual reasons. Only the individual acts.

    The 2nd amendment also protects corporations.

    Cuba, Red China, and probably in Venezuela.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I believe that here in the United States...citizens should be allowed what ever weapons will be needed to take our country back from tyranny...should that become necessary.

    Military scale weapons will be readily available when, and if, that time comes. Remember...we already, collectively, own them now.

    I'm just as sure that, as usual, you cannot in any way back up that statement.
