... I am having troubles with the idea of why one would wish to have a gun that looks like a toy.
There was an incident in the UK in which a man claiming to have a rifle wrapped in paper was shot by police when his actions were deemed to be a serious threat. In fact, the paper concealed nothing more harmless than a chair leg.
OK, guns are an unfortunate necessity, but I can't help thinking that, in the USA the constitution has been misunderstood or misinterpreted. By some, with knowledge and disregard. As I understand it, the constitution provides for Americans to bear arms in defence of liberty, freedom and the nation, not to bear arms for the sake of bearing arms.In some states it is far too easy to obtain a gun and some take full advantage of this fact. There are some who have arsenals sufficient to arm a small army with automatic weapons, rocket and grenade launchers, anti-tank weapons and heaven knows what else.WHY?Do these people hold the US armed forces in such low esteem that they believe the USA needs them to protect the nation? No, I donít think so. In fact I think these people are a significant risk to the USA. If they are mad enough to want such an arsenal or careless enough to let these weapons fall into the wrong hands, what damage could the right weapon used in the right circumstances do?
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.[...]That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, [...]But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government,

You could make a super camera lens out of any telescope.No wonder Princess D drove her car into a concrete embankment.Haven't they enacted any "privacy" laws since her death?
the law says that if you don't want to be photographed doing something then you shouldn't do it where people can see you and take pictures.
