When I Want a Progressive’s Opinion on What Guns I Should Have/Hunt with, I’ll Give it to Them

"who are they to tell us what we “need” or don’t need when it comes to anything"? The government says you cannot have bazooka's, grenades, rocket propelled launchers, SAM's, tanks and nuclear weapons. Is this in violation of your 2nd admen right? Second hunting is a privilege, not a right. Therefore the state can legally and constitutionally regulate hunting like they regulate driving. States do this all the time. Partly out of safety and partly out of conservation of the animal population.

On your first point, nuclear weapons are not normally carried by individual soldiers, or, in this case, members of the militia. Tanks are borderline. The rest are indeed violations of Second Amendment rights, with the possible exception of rocket propelled launchers, of which I have never heard. Did you mean RPGs? We have just decided to live with those particular violations.
On you second point, the Second Amendment has absolutely nothing to do with hunting.

EXPLOSIVE weapons cannot be safely (reasonably) stored in residential areas. Same for WMD,which are STRATEGIC weapons,not that any "progressive" would know the difference.
Tanks are not much different than bulldozers,except for the cannon that fires explosive rounds.
But civilians DO own tanks,fighter jets,and military helicopters,just with the weapons systems disabled.

So tactical nukes and suitcase size nukes are just a myth? Wow...Now I feel better knowing that.

Yes, I did not go deep enough. I was making the point that the protected arms are those normally carried by the foot soldier. That includes selective fire rifles, but by courtesy, we don't demand them be universally available without special license.

Russia cannot account for several of theirs...are you sure you want them widely available??? Israel has 100 or so they say of various types. Since 25% of their GDP is war industry, one could think they are making them now in vast quantity.

Or not.

No, just irrelevant to the discussion.
My buddy, Green Beret badass Bryan Sikes, shot a massive whitetail buck last week during our South Texas Purple Heart Adventure. He whacked said muy grande with a LaRue Tactical OBR chambered for the glorious .308 Win. round. Oh and BTW, Sikes used a high capacity magazine during this hunt.

For those of you who aren’t hip to the LaRue, it is a weapon that progressive darlings say we should not have because we don’t “need” such a weapon for hunting.

Hunting, according to these wizards of odd, is what they think our founding fathers had in mind when...
