Gun mongers such as Wayne LaPierre, National Gun Association, and others of his ilk would say emphatically “no.”
For arguments sake, let's say gun owners should have unlimited access to weapons to protect themselves from the mean ol' federals intent upon seizing their weapons.
How many guns does Wayne LaPierre need? It doesn't matter. Let's allow him more.
How about a couple of Browning Automatic Rifles, Thompson sub-machine guns, and a few burp guns?
Let's throw in a couple of machine guns with sand bag emplacements on Mr. LaPierre's front lawn.
We're not through. In the back yard Wayne could have four mortars so he can fire in any direction. (Shades of Gen. Chesty Puller U.S.M.C., circa 1951 Korea)
How about a 105mm Howitzer cannon? What the heck, give Wayne a 155 mm.
Now surely Monsieur Pierre would be ready to face the 1st Marine Division when it arrives, right?
And the armored truck departs. What is the moral of this story?
No matter how well armed any citizen or group of citizens may be they will always be outgunned by the finest fighting force the world has ever known.
Roger that and Semper Fi.

There should be safer and more natural treatments to cure cancer than what is offered by conventional medicine today. In many cases, the cure is worse than the disease.
The American Medical Association seems to only want to use only surgery, radiation and chemotherapy only for cancer and I have heard if some doctor cures cancer by any other method, he is classed as a quack and many even go to the penitentiary.
Our country is in moral decay because we have not upheld the sanctity of family life in general. Our young boys will not get the teaching that the Boy Scouts have instilled in them over the years if they allow homosexuals to be leaders.
I am opposed to this action and pray that this outstanding organization will stand strong on their moral values and resist the pressure that is being put on them to change their policy to allow homosexuals become leaders.
