Yes you can legally buy and own a gernade launcher in the good old US of A. You can even legally buy live ammunition for it, but I believe that with kind of thing you would be limited to smoke or flares.

A grenade launcher with bean bag rounds is actually becoming more popular as a non lethal home defense option lol.

A shotgun with the same is more practical, naturally.

Just sayin'. Wink

The other guys, too, had a limit of 1. Just sayin'. Drinking Beverage

Yep. And a well trained standing army that was already successfully holding down the beginnings of a globe-spanning empire.

Wouldn't have slowed him down much, considering that he had 22 other guns with him to choose from, and it took law enforcement 12 minutes to get to him.

Maybe because your average tosser could throw a grenade maybe 50 or 60 feet, and he was 1000 feet from the crowd.

Of course he could have tried to smuggle a grenade into the crowd on his body, but likely would have been caught before he got in, since security on the field was pretty tight:

"'It's gonna be the safest part of the city to be in during both weekends, just because of the sheer number of officers that will be present,' said Brian Manley, the chief of the Austin Police Department, during a press conference this week. Manley said the department will have officers inside and outside the festival, with heightened attention to threats from outside the gates."

The inconvenience of hunters (and the profit margins of the Military Industrial Complex) are worth more to you than public safety and decent common sense.

It's not about convenience. When hunting, normal or enhanced hearing is necessary.

And you seem to be greatly exaggerating the effect of suppressors. They don't make guns quiet, just less loud.

We were spread way to thin, had we not been also fighting the French and coming from 3000 miles away we might have won. Just sayin Tongue

He was pretty far from the concert (obviously not far enough to do some serious damage with his mass of weapons) but grenades would be pretty useless.
