Your arguments are very weak when it comes to machine guns,Machine pistols,Small explosive device

Not at all. Since they are somewhat less discriminating, I would establish some rules as pertaining to their use: No use when your backdrop is that of a crowded area; an idiot-check to make sure you are not effing nuts, and that is about it. Kinda like Brady Bill for Machine Guns only, and the repeal of the (in my opinion unconstitutional) 1934 National Firearms Act.

If they weren't then you are looking at serious jail time. I don't disagree with your intent I however disagree with your method. In a truley constitutional situation it would be up to the government to prove that you are incapable of being trusted.
