  •  So why ban an RPG (0+ / 0-)

    They are expensive, would be a lot of fun to shoot, and are often contraband?

    Because something gives you a stiffy isn't an excuse for keeping it legal.  We restrict all sorts of weapons that are military grade not because they would be used often, but because they achieve a level of dangerousness with very little other use other than 'having fun.'

      What's the obsession with hard ons dude? (Or dudette?)

      We restrict/ban a bunch of military hardware that isn't covered by the second amendment because it's classified as ordnance, not arms (in the second amendment sense).

      •  And 50 Calibers aren't covered (0+ / 0-)

        by the Second Amendment.  So what's your point?  The Court has, at best, ruled common infantry weapons of the time are covered by the Second Amendment with limits even then on automatic weapons.  

        I'm not the one who has some weird nerd obsession with firearms. Gun "enthusiasts" are remarkably like D & D obsessives--lots of jargon, not must substance.
