"Who needs those military-style assault weapons flooding the market? And those banana clips full of ammo. Why? To go squirrel hunting?"
So far as I know, no free people have ever been enslaved by squirrels.
Military-style assault weapons were created for defense against the most dangerous animals this world has ever produced -- Socialists. 150 million dead and counting. Billions enslaved. All in the name of "Social Justice".
Assault weapons also work well on less dangerous animals like Islamic Fascists, zombies, and even the occasional burglar or rapist.
For defense against squirrels, I'd just use a shotgun.
