Many battles have been fought on American soil, lest we forget. Don't say that it can't happen again. Pre-911, how many people thought that that terrorists would hijack three planes and cause the destruction that they did? As for me I'll keep building up my arsenal and doing what I need to do to protect my family.

As far as sniper weapon systems, many hunting rifles today have the accuracy of sniper weapons in years past. Its not the weapon that makes a sniper, but the nut pulling the trigger.

Silencers have practical aspects and are quite common in Europe. Would be nice to hunt and not have to worry about losing your hearing.

Somebody forgot to tell Kalifornia that, you can't even buy a .50 BMG anymore in Cali. Its funny becuase they are already developing some .499 caliber wildcat rounds to demonstrate the futility of that law.

Do you think that the 2nd amendment should allow for RPG's, Fully automatic M4 Carbine + mods, High-power sniper rifles (i.e. the M4OA3) or items such as the Javelin anti-tank missile (for those who could afford the 800k+ tab/ missile)?
I absolutely believe that full auto weapons were protected as well as other military type weapons. Of course it does not enumerate these items since they would not be invented for over a hundred years. When the amendment was written, the goal of the authors was to prevent tyrannical governments from forming and taking over. How is a citizen militia going to fight against a standing army or invading force with just a deer rifle or a Berretta trap shotgun? Granted, a long range high-powered rifle is a valuable tool but if it was the best tool then all of our troops would be running around with Remington 700 rifles and scopes. :laughing6

As for the anti-tank missile, if you could afford it you should be able to purchase it. I guarantee that the people in D.C. would be a little more careful about rubber-stamping a B.S. law or deviating from the best interests of the citizens who elected them if some guy has a Javelin sitting in his gun safe at home.

In all seriousness, a case can be made that if they fall into the wrong hands, these would be absolutely devastating weapons. Unfortunately, the "wrong hands" will already have access to these items since they don't abide by the law in the first place.

Thank you for the intelligent response, I was just checking for consistancy...

You haven't seen half of it...hehehe. Full-auto weapons burn through ammo pretty quickly so you better have a good supply if you want to shoot them. I like to buy in quantity to save a little cash.

What you were looking at were just spare mags for the M16. Many people spend a ton of money on a gun but never have enough mags. If your magazine breaks or gets lost, you have a very expensive paperweight. I bought a bunch of them since I don't want to get stuck paying ridiculous prices if they ban them again.

Even on semi-auto, I can burn through a 30-round clip with my AR-15, so yeah... one can burn through rounds like mad.

Don't believe that! I understand you point. There are a ton of lazy people out there who are willing to trade their liberties away but the American Spirit will eventually overcome. I think you are underestimating the people of our country.
