I think you're asking the wrong poster that question. I'm still waiting on a good reason why 'open carry' is such a good idea when recent examples clearly show it isn't. As for owning all that other crap, it isn't practical nor would it do any good, except for drug gangs and the like. Who thinks they can afford to train with an M-60 given the cost per round of ammo? Just how much 'practice' are you going to get in a tank, assuming you could crew it with anybody competent? How many tanks will you be able to scrape together and maintain?Will they do any good at picking off a terrorist enraged over the ButterFingers Shortage in the Candy aisle if you're over in Automotive? Or would a sidearm nobody knows you have be the more sensible choice? Wouldn't the store's ceiling kind of screw up using a mortar to take them out? Would you be willing to pay for damages if you ran out and fired up your surplus Soviet T-62 and crashed through the store walls and run the guy over?If someone wants to buy a high tech sniper rifle to shoot little children, he has a Constitutional right to do soOf course they shouldIf some people believe that Americans shouldn't be allowed to own "military style" rifles....what about actual military sniper rifles? How about military guns used to blow doors off their hinges? These are weapons used in actual war by the military.....should they be banned since they are actual military weapons vs. "military style," weapons?
And do you understand that under the Miller ruling....from the Supreme Court....actual military weapons are protected under the 2nd Amendment?
They are very effective at massacring small children, shooting up shopping malls and churches as well as killing small rodents
And yet, in a country of over 320 million people.....only 11 people last year used their guns illegally in mass public shootings. At the same time, each year, on average, Americans use their legal guns 1.1 million times to stop rape, robbery and murder.....saving lives....
You got anything else?
God Bless our founding fathers!
ABSOLUTELY! And they are useful against statist mother fr's too!
I guess you've never heard of MODERATION have you. EVERYTHING in moderation.
Like I said, some of these posters are out to lunch already.
Gee, thank God for the tanks and mortars they used to stop those rapes and murders.And yet, in a country of over 320 million people.....only 11 people last year used their guns illegally in mass public shootings.

What you don't understand is that it isn't up to you to determine how someone carries their legal gun. In some states with concealed carry, if you accidentally show the gun, since you can't open carry, you can be charged with brandishing the gun....which is why you should have open and concealed carry...that way as you concealed carry you can't be charged if your shirt hikes up when you reach for the cheerios at the grocery store and some anti-gun extremist calls it in to the police as if you are a joe biden rioter burning the store down.....
And the dumb argument about tanks and mortars..............
Gee...the founders didn't want us to carry tanks and mortars...so that means you can't have your handgun or rifle too....
