Yeah but I think Smokey888's question is why do you need assault weapons? You can't use them in hunting and we have this thing called the police so you needn't do any vigilante work...
Do you think civil society is going to last forever here? I honestly do not. My thought process is that there could come a time, it may be a single event out of the blue, when youre going to want much much more than a double barreled shotgun and a .22 for protection. If the dollar collapses it could cause mass chaos. Theres not enough police to protect everybody, even on a small scale basis. If theres one crisis going on that they can funnel all of their resources to, they will get there....eventually....and help.
What if theres a total break down and there are 10, 50, 200 crisis going on at the same time? Now its just you to fend off whatever the threat may be. If the money becomes no good, I do not know many police officers who are going to work for free in order to protect you specifically from angry roving gangs.
If you think society holds together forever, which is a very long time, then its easy to become complacent and assume the authorities will always take care of everything for you. Including the protection of your family when people are starving and desperate. Maybe nothing will ever happen. I would not bet on it.
