Several people have commented using the buzz words "Armory" & "Arsenal", lets look at those words. To my understanding of these usages, they just mean several firearms. What is wrong with that? I've been shooting for fun for decades and I can tell you this. Contrarily to the mall ninja mentality, you can only shoot one at a time. So what does it matter if they have 2 or 5 or 42 guns?
As for the 'it's for future sales' people, What, our future generations shouldn't be allowed to own firearms? even though they have done nothing wrong? I don't believe in taking away rights for something someone MAY do sometime in the future.
From some of these comments like, "high power weapons" it's obvious that the person knows nothing about firearms. The M-4, modern version of the M-16/AR-15, fires the 5.56 round (basically the .223) this round is used for hunting COYOTES! It is NOT powerful enough for bigger game! So how is this a "high power weapon"?
As for the Magazine bans, well Adam Lanza fired as few as 15 rounds per magazine before reloading.
And here is a link to how quickly someone can do a Mag swap.
And a link to a little reported incident where having an armed person in a school saved lives. Don't go by what the media says, My cats know more about firearms than they do.
