My pro-cannon stance was inspired by this quote:

"Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." -Tench Coxe 1788

If GovCo can have terrible implements, we can have them. Financial limitations and personal liability would be the only deterance.
Private citizens already own tanks and cannons. Because they are so expensive, most people don't have them. I've never heard of people being irresponsible with them.
