never as a single word.
Here's one to get on the nerves of the USians out there: If a
generic term like "gun" is so rare in languages, and as the US was
founded by a mix of Spanish, French and British (and Portuguese),
would the term "arms" in American as it was spoken, say, 300 years
ago be another example of a generic or would it have been (in light
of the other influences) a specific?
The Second Amendment right to "keep and bear arms" (1791) is not
restricted to firearms.
Does anything in American law prevent private American citizens from
possessing nuclear weapons, long range missiles, warplanes, submarines
-you name it?
Sure. Try United States Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 39, Section 831
for nuclear weapons.- Hide quoted text -

But do we know if it is constitutional?
David Koresh and company legally had in their possession .50 caliber
weapons - I believe they could pierce tanks. Just exactly where do
the gun kooks draw the line? Since the constitution is the supreme
law of the land - it appears that there is no actual limit to what
arms private citizens can possess.
