    You often hear a reductio ad absurdum argment in debates about civilian arms ownership. The problem is civilians in the US can legally own most any weapon from a .22 handgun to a newly manufactured machine gun all the way up to a Missouri class battleship with a couple of inexpensive licenses. Why the hell you would want or could afford one is a completely different problem. Any muzzeloading artillery piece requires no permit, no background check, and no registration. Fortunately there have been no crimes involving the discharge of civilian owned artillery in the US for the past 80 years but plenty of stupid Buba Joe outtakes. Ownership of any of these weapons can be further regulated at the state level. This is entirely bad news for the zombie population of the United States as they have to live in constant fear of attack from the privileged living enabled. For protection of Undead Rights I suggest we seek the adoption of state legislation that make civilian ownership of these destructive devices illegal.

    No you cannot get a civilian license for plutonium or weaponized biological agents

      So... you want to ban muzzle loading artillery... such as cannons from the general public? Despite there being no crimes committed with them in 80 years? Why?

        Air soft is not fully legal? I'm in California (super liberal area) and there are a lot of air soft ranges to go crazy at; tons of people bring their own. Interesting.

        Funny to add in the zombie population. Awesomeness!

        (note to self: congratulations on 100 posts lol)

        We are allowed to have single shot, up to 1.5 joule. No automatic :frown:
        But nobody actually gives a fuck. Got my 7 joule G82 full metal ^^

          Clever that they used Joules instead of using just velocity like we do in paintballing; in comparison, this would allow consideration for mass too (W=0.5mv^2). More mass would imply more force (F=ma) so I am certain the bigger pellets would hurt like hell even if they are going at the same speed as the smaller ones :nerd:

          I always thought this was a muzzle-loader:

          These are not considered muzzle loaders are they? I'm confused why you'd want to ban the above, but not the below?
