There are videos on YouTube of morons freely walking about their neighbourhoods in America with automatic weapons ‘exercising their rights’ while the cops can literally do nothing about it. You have parents ringing the police saying my kids are out playing beside a man with a machine gun and this is allowed. Crazy country.
I can understand a remote farmer having a rifle to protect his family against wolves and bears, I can even see logic in the private citizen having a sidearm to protect their home in a dangerous country.
But I see no reason whatsoever of how someone could justify the need for an automatic weapon in an urban area.
