grenades and "rocket launchers" are EXPLOSIVE devices,already regulated as "destructive devices". You can't safely store such explosives in residential areas. But "progressives" use the lame excuse that "if we can regulate some things,then we can regulate everything".

By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. We’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home.

"I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...
