Who decides what rifle looks a certain way?
Who decides if the Second Amendment prohibits private ownership of tanks, rocket propelled grenade launchers, chemical weapons or biological weapons if an American determines that they offer the best way to defend themselves ?

Tanks are not restricted. The cannon on the tank is. its not the way the cannon is shaped. Its the size of the barrel and the size of the shell.

It's not the look, it's the functionality.
Anything capable of firing a large number of rounds quickly, should be banned.
Basically that's most semiautomatic weapons.

That's what most first world countries do.

This is not what Hosier88 said. He said Semi automatics that are "styled" after fully automatic military weapons. In fact the call in general we are hearing out there is not what you say about all semi automatic weapons but rather just the "assault" style weapons. Even in your statement you say "most" semi automatic weapons. Where the hell are you drawing your arbitrary line. This is the problem with all of this. There is no logic about it. Laws are supposed to be written so they are clear. You guys are not clear in any way about what you think should be done.

Who decides what size barrel and shell should be legal and on what constitutional authority specifically ?

The calibre is written in a law. A law saying "style" of an assault weapon is extremely vague. who decides which guns have the "style"? can you try and be logical?

What specifically in the Second amendment authorizes the government to regulate my choice of any arms ?

Your question is not an answer to my question.

So from the Left, after you get a law passes that bans assault style weapons, who decides what meets that vague criteria?

Guys, I've told you before, it is legal to privately own a tank. You just need to do a shitload of paperwork and register the main gun with ATF as a destructive device.

You can find them on Armslist (kind of like Craigslist, but all weapons).

Here is a Chieftain, complete with spare engine, mine plow, functional turret and 120mm cannon, and ten rounds for a quarter million dollars. Cheaper than a Lamborghini!



ARMSLIST - For Sale: Fully Operational Main Battle Tank with 120mm Live Cannon
