So weapons-grade plutonium should be limited. But the ever-handy semi-auto Glock pistol with a 30-round high-capacity magazine is an absolute right?Yes because nuclear weapons are the same as a handgun.

A recent gun buyback drive in Los Angeles resulted in someone turning in a rocket launcher. Comforting.No, actually it was a dummy casing used for training. A little actual research would have shown her that, but then she couldn't go on her diatribes about 'daisy cutters' and nukes.
