If it is meant to protect us from the tyranny of our government then we should have weapons equal to that of our government. I would draw the line at individual ownership of ICBM's but I think each state should have control of one.
Of course it has nothing to do with hunting. You are not going to have weapons equal to the government, those days are long gone. Using that line of debate is simply outdated. Nor do you need them to fight a standing military, as witnessed by the wars of the last 40 years.

And no way is NJ getting a ICBM
