That is a valid reason, one I'd support
Retired military personnel allowed to use the same weapons that they used in combat, for fun? Are you listening to yourself? With all due respect to those that serve our country, they don't need automatic weapons and grenade launchers any more than a non-serviceman does.

So you aren't going to "go in circles" with me, but you're going to continue repeating yourself without actually explaining your rationale. Nice.
