On Nukes

Someone in a thread on Fark asked why, if the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms, he can’t have a nuke.
Another commenter replied with a rather snarky answer: “Two reasons, you don’t have the money to buy one and you’re not smart enough to build one.”
I was amused.

  1. Because if you don’t know how to use something or want to use something, it’s not a weapon. You could plop a MOAB in my living room (gently, please) and it wouldn’t be a danger to anyone as I can’t set it off and I don’t want to set it off.
    On the other hand, though, if the U.S. government was so kind as to park an M61A3 PIVADS in my driveway, I’d be willing to take to the time to learn how to use it and use it well…
