The bottom line for me is that by definition, all firearms that are suited for Military use are also suited for Militia use and those are the exact firearms that the 2nd Amendment was designed to Protect.
By Rights we should be able to own a REAL Assault Rifle, full auto and all, without the need to jump through all the ATF, '34 NFA hoops. It's our Right as Citizens of the United States and it's Protected by the 2nd Amendment. Of course that Right has been infringed since 1934 and no one to my knowledge has challenged it in Court to get it over turned.
This is where our "fight" really needs to be going, in being on the offensive and getting all the Unconstitutional laws that are on the books repealed. Once we start doing that then we can Truly have our 2nd Amendment Rights back and use them as our Founding Fathers intended.
