    •  Nope (0+ / 0-)

      M252 requires a crew of three, and fires (effectively) artillery.

      •  "carried by an infantryman" (0+ / 0-)

        is what you said, and is how a M252 is deployed.  And the "18th century definition of "arms"" most certainly included artillery.

        Show me (in the 2nd amendment) where it doesn't . . . 'cause if you're going to suggest that the 2nd applies only to long guns available at the time it was written you're pretty much limiting all (protected) gun ownership to cap and ball . . .
