It is regulated..
Have you bought a gun lately?
Yes, and I see the point you are trying to make, but still don't agree with it. A different set of criteria for a different set of weapons.
The bottom line is we see regulation of weapons designed for the military and war and wanted by sportmens in a different light.
Your argument is that Eric Holder and Obama and Democrats not only want this, but to then move onto regular hunting rifles, bows and arrows, spears, boxing gloves, and then our testicles (kidding on the last part).
I don't see it that way. My view is they want to regulate 'MILITARY' weapons that in the wrong hands can have drastic negative consequences. I happen to think that makes sense and where it begins and ends.
That's my view and I'm not changing yours nor you mine.
