Question: "But why do you need an assault rifle?"

"But why do you need an assault rifle?"

Here's the Second Amenedment:

"Amendment 2 - Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the
people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Necessary for the security of a ...'Free'... State. Not just Stste. Its necessary too.

Right to Bears arms just for the purpose of... hunting? Nope.

Looks like we need to address the legalization Rocket-propelled Grenades Launchers. Maybe even Stinger and Javelin missiles as the second amendment clearly supports such an endeavor.

Actually, I could use a Tank right now.

Every adult should own an "Assault Rifle" keep it at home and train with it.

"For ‘A Well-Regulated Militia,’ What Firearms, Gear, and Skills Should You Own?" By Bob Owens On December 20, 2012

"The Second Amendment was written to ensure citizens had contemporary rifles of military utility, and no single rifle more accurately fits that description today than AR-15 rifles patterned after the M-16 rifle and M-4 carbine that have been the U.S. military standard for half a century.

"If Americans are interested in adhering to the Founders’ intentions for a “well-regulated militia” ... it is our duty not to just own firearms ... but to own AR-15 rifles and accessories and to train with them to an agreed upon standard of competency."

Got that?

Nah, just say "Define 'assault rifle'."

If they can't define it then you don't have to tell them why you need it.

I need an assault rifle because they are designed and made specifically to fight off jackbooted fascists. Why do you need a $7 cup of coffee

The answer to why is nothing more than a round downrange. If they're askin', they're again' you.

I think that various states should consider moving to is the Swiss model of "National Guard" or state militia, which means that members of said official militia would keep actual, bona-fide assault rifles in their homes, as the Swiss do.
