No, I meant individual citizens.If someone has the money to get their own tank I have no problem with that (if they are not using it for tyranny or evil purposes.) You would not be allowed to drive it on public roads in normal situations.
I am guessing what you are saying is State governments should have access to nuclear weapons....
Same as how individuals owned and armed ships, supplied artillery and outfitted military units
No.Should have the right to "any firearm issued to or commonly carried by a soldier". Nuclear missiles are not commonly issued to or carried by a soldier, and before anyone says it... grenades are not classified as firearms and would not be covered under this.
Is that just your idea of an acceptable point of compromise, or is that something you got elsewhere? No snark, just asking.
It says “arms” and “the people“, not “firearms“, and makes no mention of “commonly carried” nor of “soldiers”.
The Founders knew exactly what they were saying, and they said exactly what they meant.
I watch a YouTube thing by a guy named Chief Makoi, he had a vid about that, but I think his guys were put on and taken off by a boat in international waters.A buddy of mine used to do security of the ships. They would get picked up in one country with their weapons and just before they arrived at the end port they would dump their weapons in to the ocean.
Same idea though...no guns in ports where you could end up in seriously bad jails. There’s enough corruption involved in just passing basic inspections, they commonly have to pay $5-10K per certain ports to get signed off, no matter how perfect their ship is.
