Some people seem to think that only the military should be allowed certain weapons. They forget that the minutemen and other militia (citizens) who fought the war for independence had weapons that were typically superior to those of the British military. Also, cannons were available to the militia; otherwise, our Founders wouldn't have been able to use them against the British.
