    If you were to say that these weapons should be made available for folks to use at appropriate places, sure. And available to be used during times of need, sure.

    But an M60 in every house? Nope. M16, M4? Nope. Those weapons, when used as designed (full auto, spray and pray), apply collateral damage as a function of its use. That is not acceptable to me.
    I think all hand held firearms are protected by the second amendment. once you get into crew served MGs perhaps not. Since Civilian police have select fire carbines (But not crew served machine guns) they are protected

    Correct. That is the organized component of the militia.

    He didn't like the response I gave and preceded to go in circles trying to claim the AR15 couldn't be used for hunting.
    People who don't understand firearms are the ones who spend the most time arguing why they should be banned for not meeting tests these banners don' t understand

    I noted that the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) sponsors all sorts of rifle competitions using rifles that include the AR 15.

    If someone has the wallet and motivation to acquire a nuke, I don't think a mere law prohibiting that will stand in their way.

    Still, probably best to leave their possession to the various entities of state where we are confident they will forever be safe, secure and never used wrongly.

    In the case of a select fire weapon, one doesn't have to turn the switch to the rock and roll position. But it would be available during times of need.

    So because you have not attended a meeting they no longer exist? Hmmm, interesting way of thinking.
