Oh the inexact tendencies of headline writers!
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I would never order a megalithic tomb from anybody but the finest Parisian dolmen craftsmen. I mean really. I have some pride....

Landmines & hand grenades... Not the usual products found in an ordinary gun shop.

It's Oklahoma. They don't call it the Wild West for nothing.

Interesting point though, are they classed the same way as guns? Does the NRA lobby for them? Is it illegal to own grenades.
As a boy we had a huge bonfire using an old fallen tree on cracker night. Great time cooking spuds and throwing bungers at each other. In the morning the old man raked out a hand grenade (mills bomb) from the ashes - happy days.

Functional hand grenades & landmines are illegal everywhere in the US. They are considered weapons of mass destruction. There is no applicable civilian use for such weapons. Same for bombs, rockets & RPGs. Replicas & deactivated ones that are rendered harmless can be owned as collectibles. Common sense should tell you that weapons such as the aforementioned items are for military use only.
