Feinstein: "Do they need a Bazooka?!?" - The eminently reasonable answer may surprise you...Submitted by beauxcphus on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 22:55
It has been well established that the original intent of the 2nd amendment was to enable the people to defend against tyranny which invariably comes in the form of an overbearing and oppressive government. This right to defense is not special to Americans and is a natural right of all peoples.
In the 70s and 80's the Afghani militia (the mujahideen) was engaged against tyranny (Soviets). In order to aid them in their fight against their oppressors, the US sent Stinger shoulder mounted rocket launchers so they could wage an asymmetrical battle against the much better equipped Soviet forces.
Therefore our own government established the precedent that, in the age of a modern military, rocket launchers (Bazookas) fall within the scope of weapons necessary for citizen militias fighting against tyranny - inadvertently making the case that they should be covered under the 2nd amendment.
