Okay, Tad, there are several problems with your post.
First, your comment about “weapons of easy mass murder (like machine guns and rocket launchers) “.
The statement is nonsensical, and doesn’t apply to common household guns. I could respond with “no one is talking about legalizing rocket launchers, this is an argument you’re only having with yourself.” Except that I AM trying to reduce the restrictions on rocket launchers and machine guns. I’ll be honest. However, your statement shows you really don’t know much about machine guns. In fact, I’d venture to guess TV provides most of your information about them.
Point of fact, I have a Browning 1919A4 conversion. It weighs 33 lbs. It’s tripod mounted. I can fire 400 rounds in a minute, but it will cost me $200 in ammo to do so. No one is using these for crime, nor will they ever.
