I thought the concept of limiting certain types of weapons was well established in American law. After all, no one can own a 50 cal machine gun or fire an RPG launcher. There are other limitations on assault rifles so they cannot operate in automatic mode. I am sure the vast majority of Americans approve of keeping military grade weapons off our streets.
I am confused by the conservative attitude which seems to be that any weapon invented by man should be legally available to us to use as part of our arsenal for armegedon. Does conservatism envision any limits of weaponry for home us?
