    Right, and as an RPG is operated by a single person it could be considered individual weaponry along with certain anti tank missiles or AA missiles.

    yes if such actions are REASONABLE

    the prohibition is not against warrantless searches but UNREASONABLE ONES

    the government is probably figuring you were responsible for a bunch of valuable lab mice missing

    I assume you didn't read my long post where I specifically mentioned that an RPG is in a gray area

    I read it, the last paragraph in that post seemed to backtrack on that gray area and leaned on the "not allow side"

    not at all, when the anti gun nuts admit that I should be able to buy and own the same weapons municipal police departments issue to other civilians such as select fire assault rifles (M4 or M16 and other like weapons such as the AR70, Steyr AUG, HK G36, AKM, AK74, Type 56, and the FAMAS) or SMGs such as the HK MP5, the IDF UZI, the "Swedish K" (Carl Gustaf SMG), and the Colt 9mm SMG (AR15)
    then we can get to dealing with destructive devices that are normally useful in squad activities

    what is your position on say the 1986 Hughes Amendment?
