  •  RPG's and Rocket Launchers (0+ / 0-)

    Are also a class of "man portable" firearms, 50 caliber sniper rifles that can down an aircraft, are a "class" of firearm too.

    I would say there is a "Red Line" alright, and it ain't moving in the right direction.

    If not us ... who? If not here ... where? If not now ... when?

    •  Courts have a whole battery of tests to apply (0+ / 0-)

      in order to determine whether a particular law unduly infringes on a right, or whether rights are properly balanced, etc., etc., etc.  RPGs and Rocket Launchers are controlled by the National Firearms Act, and transfer is restricted to 26 year old models by the Hughes Amendment.  Do you see a court striking that down any time soon?  Didn't think so.

      How many aircraft are you going to take down with this?
