Not only do I agree with this, I do not think civilians should be able to purchase military styled weapons. If you need a machine gun to go deer hunting, your not very good at it, and you shouldn't be hunting at all! The 2nd Amendment is for the arming of the local militia. The closest we have to this in modern times would be the National Guard! I live in a small town, and believe you me, I would not want some of the population here to be heavily armed! The fact that a lot of them ARE is what disturbs me! I also think if you have been convicted of domestic abuse, a hate crime or any other form of violence it should automatically prohibit you from owning ANY form of firearm!
