  •  After Conference, Senators Proudly Announce (4+ / 0-)

    They have agreed to complete bans on:

    Ground to Air Rocket Launchers
    Ground to Ground Grenade Launchers
    TOW Missiles will no longer be available in any format

    And they are proud to agree that Tanks, with an estimated street weight of over 10 Short Tons.

    This is important because that compromise enabled the whole thing to go through; while it prevents owners from grabbing an M1 or a Unity Tank, it makes sure that legal owners will not be deprived of owning the Irish FV101 Scorpion Tank as long as their driving records and criminal history are clear.

    That compromise took days, but as a result, this is one of the most comprehensive moves to ban deadly weaponry from people in years, and now, no one will live in fear of a neighbor with a G2G Grenade Launcher.

        Waste of ammo to use anything else and we have an ammo shortage not a cruise missile shortage
