obtained it legally.

Missing Russian "suitcase nukes," according to Wikipedia.

"The highest-ranking GRU defector Stanislav Lunev claimed that such Russian-made devices do exist and described them in more detail.[6] These devices, "identified as RA-115s (or RA-115-01s for submersible weapons)" weigh from fifty to sixty pounds. They can last for many years if wired to an electric source. In case there is a loss of power, there is a battery backup. If the battery runs low, the weapon has a transmitter that sends a coded message—either by satellite or directly to a GRU post at a Russian embassy or consulate.” According to Lunev, the number of "missing" nuclear devices (as found by General Lebed) "is almost identical to the number of strategic targets upon which those bombs would be used."

Yet, NONE of them have been used, at least as far as we know.

"Davy Crocket" nuclear warhead for projectile launched by recoiless rifle, again, according to Wikipedia.

"The Mk-54 weighed about 51 lb (23 kg), with a yield equivalent to somewhere between 10 or 20 tons of TNT— very close to the minimum practical size and yield for a fission warhead."

Again, none ever "fired in anger" and the army likely has thousands.
Knowing the Army, I am pretty sure they cannot account for all of them.

You can build a "fuel-air bomb" from charcoal, flour or any flammable liquid that produces a fine mist, that would weigh much less and achieve equal results, as long as you know what you are doing.

If you saw the movie, "Backdraft," you can clearly see what an arsonist is capable of doing, if he has the proper motivation.

So, the old "bazooka" argument does not hold water. The last time I heard that one, it came from Senator "Chucky" Schumer, who laughed all though the Waco investigations. For "Chucky," I would suggest nothing more than a "good skinning knife," but I have not yet heard anyone suggest we ban them.
