Why can't you own tanks and such?
So you assert that people have free will?
I'm gonna buy a tank one day and drive it around in an open field
yeha, the largest gun a American can actually buy is basically an artillery piece
are there any private tanks then? How about some personal nuclear devices
people can own tanks
does it stand a chance against a modern one?
you just can't have the ammo i guess
The US government would never Nuke it's own population because they would be destroying themselves
It does not
An Abrams would fuck that thing up
no but these are whats actually available
perhaps not, but you could keep them off your backs
you can buy an abrams!
you don't own a tank to fight with it
theres nothing about an abrams that make them illegal to own they're simply not sold
how about some private drones
you own it to collect it
the same thing with a old car
you can own a Jet
there are lots of vietnam era fighters in private hands
you might use sometimes, but it's mostly say you have it
even if its no good for fighting its still easily usable for air support
anti-tank weapons are crazy easy to make btw
Would get fucked up by an Abrams
Molotov coctails were used as anti tank weapons
you just register the DD its a $200 tax
yeha, but F16s are no pussy fighters, considering the USAF still uses F15s
permanently inoperable, doesn't sound very useful
you can reactivate it
not very permanent then
