Is there something in the Constitution that says we should? Cannons were available when the Constitution was written, but there is nothing in the Constitution giving us any inalienable rights to possses them. Personally, I think we should all have the right to posess anything we want until we abuse our ownership of such items. OK, because of the relative potential of a nuclear bomb owned by my neighbor taking me out if it goes off, we would need to have geographical and space provisions such as; You must own several thousand miles of property and keep your nuclear bomb at the center of that property in order to own a nuclear weapon. After all, livestock aren't allowed to be kept in the backyards of rowhomes in the cities.
