A government founded by the winners of the American Revolutionary War, and constrained by the Second Amendment, has no business banning ANY firearms of military usefulness. The whole point of the Second Amendment was to leave the people armed and able to resist government tyranny. It had nothing to do with armed self defense against ordinary criminals (although that is a basic human right which ought to be respected), or with hunting, or with target shooting, or with collecting. And infringing on the rights of the people to arm themselves, right after a stunning reminder that the world can be a dangerous place, shows a complete lack of respect for the safety and liberty of the citizens.
