Ok - we are going nowhere.
To summarize for your own cogitation:
1. Are there any limits on weapons ownership?
2. Are there realistic usages of FA for defense by civilians beyond TEOTWAWKI? Or are they just for fun?
3. If we can get them - what would be reasonable procedures, if you believe in procedures?
4. Can we discuss such in #3, without the good ol' invective from various forms and quarters of true belief?
Thus, I'm closing us down for being nonproductive. Good discussion for the most part and we covered the major serious points before we drifted.
