Um, no. Cannons (nuke shells or not) are munitions. Riffles are arms. Big difference.

Blooming idiot doesn't know that. The NRA does say that people have a right to own firearms, which was my point.

Cannon in the early colonies were sometimes owned by civilians. The early US government borrowed some, and conscripted some, and some ships during the Revolutionary War.
The founders didn't have a problem with citizens owning cannons. Those cannons are still legal to own under federal law today.
