3. A little bit skeptical.

 

Aren't semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines necessary for home defense?

Good thing that the thiugs weren't armed with Uzis or grenade launchers.......

4. it didn't say

what kind of handgun, it could have been one of these for all we know.

No one said one needed a semi auto rifle with (please define high capacity? The political definition or what the gun was designed for?), the issue is freedom of choice, which last I checked is a liberal value.

12. Stop Infringing on my 2nd Amendment Rights.

The Constitution says I have a right to arms. It doesn't say I can't have a nuclear weapon!

I'm a proponent of the 2nd Amendment. I don't give a crap about how many children are killed or how much danger I bring to the community.

What? Are you some kind of communist?

15. there may or may not be a law against it

if you have a couple of hundred million, check out the law. Besides, I think nukes would be "ordnance" instead of "arms" in those days. What a nuke has in common with a not very powerful rifle kind of escapes me.

16. There are security issues to consider

Storage site, alarm and intruder detection, response team etc . Rifles will be needed as deadly force is mandated...
A personal firearm is a much better choice, logistically speaking.

18. Security Issues?

 

I hope you're not one of those trigger lock or gun safe freaks.

2nd Amendment doesn't mandate that I give a crap about anyone but myself.

Screw safety!!!

19. I am afraid so...

That silly Non-proliferation Treaty has to be taken into account...

Look on the bright side, defense of nuclear weapons is the littleknown seventh situationin use of deadly force. If you are looking for excuses to shoot, it is the best one legally.

20. Nukes are ordnance, not covered under 2A.

Arms are discretely targeted, meaning that you aim it at individual humans or individual animals. We routinely get new people in here who think they are being smart leaving common sense behind and bringing up nukes.

7. If you find yourself in a fair fight, you have done something wrong

In a life or death struggle, why should predatory criminals be on an equal level with a victim?

13. Clearly we need to pass a law.

 

There should be a maximum limit of two home invaders per day.
