it didnt say anything about government training. Im all for people taking gun safety classes, its the best thing one can do, i think everyone gun owner or not should take the classes, they might stop being so scared of a tool if they did
yes it does. The second amendment (since thats what the thread is labeled) is to protect us from the government. as such having a weapon equal to our government is indeed perfectly acceptable to me. The world is a dangerous place, it always was, and always will be. and frankly I wouldnt want to live in a place that is 100% controled (safe) by thew government.
I personally believe any law abiding citizen should be able to have any non chemical non nuclear weapon they want. The reason I draw the line at chemical and nuclear is simple. chemicals and plutonium can be illegal and constitutional. I dont believe in any gun that fires a powder based projectile should be illegal.
