    for me.  An across the board ban, no one gets them.  Military & Police included.

    Driving is a privilege not an unalienable right.

    We must address this as some point.

    •  Fine. Let's ban tanks because civilians (0+ / 0-)

      don't need them.

      Now if we could get 192 countries to agree, yes, it would be fine. Tanks, machine guns, nukes, the lot.

      Somebody at the Constitutional Convention proposed limiting the US army to 5000 men. George Washington remarked in a stage whisper, "A excellent idea! Let us add that no country will be allowed to attack us with more than 5000 men." It was the only time he broke out of his role as moderator of the discussions of the others. The proposal died on the spot.
