No, the government really does.<quoted text>The gov. has no right telling us what kind of gun to own.
It's all about education. When you give trained members of an organization firearms, they are likely to use them only when necessary. All it takes to convince a standard person to use a gun irresponsibly is a bad day and firearm availability. It psychologically compounds as a temptation with added firearm customization, the same way that custom vehicle modifications psychologically create more agressive drivers. After multiple studies were conducted, researchers found a direct corellation between modification and abuse. People start to see their modified goods as an extension of themselves. Pair that with the presence of fatality and you have a terrible blend of human angst and killing ability.

Flash suppressants and shaved pins? Screw that.
