Thom Hartmann: Should citizens have the same weapons as the military?



So, by extension, the NRA's solution to too much gun violence in America is to increase the number of armed people. Especially in our schools. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

2. Our military's infantry have full-auto weapons. Less than 200K American civilian have these.

And these weapons are highly regulated and grand-fathered.

If Hartmann is speaking of semi-auto weapons, these are not the front-line infantry weapons of our military, and haven't been for 50 years.
