Then stop yer cryin' about some nut slaughtering 20 elementary school kids 'cause that's the sort of thing that's going to happen when you give the public military weapons.<quoted text>Humans being what we are, and population growth being what it is, there is DEFINITELY an argument for hunting with them.
You just don't care to have it.
I don't believe you will stop this sort of thing by banning such weapons but I also know of no legitimate reason for the public to have them. This fantasy they have that they're going to prevent tyranny is nothing more than that: a fantasy. Doesn't matter how many AK's or AR-15's the public has they would be next to useless should the US government to decide to turn our military against us.
