    Swiss / Israeli model? I posit you're correct, and that ties in with the proscription on standing (land) military.

    I'm not suggesting a get-out-of-jail-free card.
    I'm saying that as a citizen I possess the right to own -- and maintain proficiency with, so long as I break no other laws doing so -- whatever weapons I can afford.

    Note that one can build a bow for a very small cost -- or expend as much on a bow as on a rifle / pistol / shotgun. One can do the same with a crossbow.

    No one will dispute the deadliness of such weapons turned on humans, but there's not the outcry to stop people possessing them that there is the outcry against firearms.

    Why?
