Here’s a quote

Wh[o] would need one of these guns? Susan was right yesterday. Nobody needs guns like these, especially with grenade launchers.

Now, is this

  1. a standard “guns are evil!@!” mush from a MAList?
  2. a funny sarcastic comment?

I originally read it as (2), but now I think it might be (1). Ah the joys on interacting on the InterTubes!

“The 1994 ban prohibited rifles with detachable mags and TWO of the following features:

Bayonet lugs, pistol grips, grenade launchers, folding/telescoping stocks, and flash suppressors/threaded barrels.”

the commenter was saying, clumsily, that no one needs assault rifles, especially with a grenade launcher option. so the answer is #1.
