32. a true assault weapon

using the technical term would be, since it is not an individual weapon. What you think of as an "assault weapon"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assault_weapon is simply an ugly carbine that happens to be semi automatic. Yes, in the proper caliber and five round magazine, they are legal for hunting. If you are talking about an assault rifle, which have been strictly regulated since the 1930s, they could be militia issue and property, until you retire. At that time, the rifle becomes your property, like Switzerland.

Personally, if I purchase in item with my money I should not have to let some other person have control of it.

I'm sure you remember Paul Revere's ride (Miss Ludington rode a longer distance, but history seems to ignore great women, especially if they are only 16, but I digress). What was the mission of those British troops? Oh yeah, to destroy stored equipment in central supply depots and armories.

I'm not a fan of centralized anything, especially military logistics and communications (or power grids. Solar panels on roofs are better for national security as well as the planet than have several million people dependent on one coal fired or nuke plant.)
