    My basic formula: You can fire one cartridge of no more power than a .50 BMG per pull of the trigger.

I don't necessarily think they need to be banned outright, but they should probably be restricted to a higher degree than handguns.

    Pipe bombs and nuclear bombs are clearly a no...They serve no legitimate purpose.
    Most police departments have M16s

    In other words, local and state governments have determined that some civilians have a legitimate use for a real assault rifle. Police are limited to the same rules OTHER civilians are bound by concerning the use of lethal force

    In other words, if it is legitimate for the state police, the FBI or the the LAPD to have assault rifles, there are certainly legtimate reasons for OTHER civilians to have them too

    yeah our total ban on crack and heroin has really been a raging success here.

    so you want to ban swords? my son and I are both black belts and the wife is getting close. How about hatchets? I took some training in tomahawk fighting--nasty weapon-ever see The Patriot? Peter Lagana stuff. I also have a 7000 dollar Katana made by Howard Clark. Should that be banned? what about the machete I use for work around my fields? Sticks-spent a few years doing escrima too. A master lock with 3 feet of chain-nasty nasty weapon, better than a knife in some cases.

    knives> ever see Leo Gaje? 45 cuts in 5 seconds?

    bans on weapons only bans them from honest people

    you can be a slave if you want

    I choose not to

    I choose the ways and means to deal with someone trying to hurt me or my family

    So far.

    And a pipe bomb is nothing more than a crude frag grenade.
