    I'm sure that the gun nuts will claim that it is their 2nd amendment right to own one. You never know when some bad guy will try to attack your house with a stolen black hawk helicopter.

    Why sure we might just have to blast an Alkita strong hold down the block or a sleeper cell next door. Or maybe my inlaw's family reunion.

    @scotta I'll pass that along to the next one I see. Maybe I can get info on where to pick one up. Have you checked Ebay?

    Other than the fact they wanted one, no. But they are a spent device. They don't work any longer and can't be made to work again. Unless I'm missing something here they're nothing more than a really novel coat rack. If that is the case why the indignation?

    I would love to own some demilitarized launchers as novelty items but I have no use for an actual RPG, SMAW, etc. However is an example of where security should be tightened on what used items get taken out of the battlefield, etc. If live versions started being used in public massacres then I would say we have a problem but this simply isn't the case.

    @EMS_Servant here's my thoughts on this. Some jackass robbed a house that some military guy had brought home a spent rocket launcher and thought he had struck paydirt. Then he finds out it's a dud. But he hangs onto it to show his jackass buddies until the novelty wears off and he gets no more attention with it so it gets thrown in a closet. NOW there is a buyback and said jackass decides to turn it in for cash. If I were in charge of the buy back I'd laugh at him and take his launcher on the grounds it's illegal to even have and tell him I'm calling the cops. Then watch him run.

    Exactly, the article makes clear it was deactivated. Wouldn't be surprized if govt turns out this is a govt effort to create anti-gun hysteria to help pass gun control laws.

    @PoliticalSpice - Welcome over to our side Spice. Once you start becoming skeptical of your government, all that is left is to register with the Republican party. Let me be the first to welcome you aboard.

    No word about the three Streetsweeper shotguns that were exchanged for $100 each? All I can say is, someone is either feeling very guilty or they have no idea how much those could be sold for.

    Anyone else notice the non-functional part about the story. You can get non-functional launchers at most surplus stores, they are just hollow fiber glass tubes

    Any one with an electrical engineering degree could figure out how to rewire the laser and gps targeting system to a oh let's say cell phone tower or satellite to triangulate....fabricating a couple of tubes shouldn't be to bad....now where to I get the missle

    Being that it was "non-functional" according to the article, it was no longer a weapon. Perhaps it could have been used as a club? Bottom line, it was a military relic, not a weapon. I used to see non-functional grenades at surplus stores all the time. They looked cool, but were basically akin to a rock.

    Yes but the only reason would be to fuel the hysteria already created by the government over gun control.
    Funny how our government can't find the Stinger missiles they sold to al Qaeda

    but all of a sudden now that Obama is in his second term and doesn't have to answer to anyone mysteriously Stinger missiles are appearing out of the blue at gun buyback program sponsored by the government. and it's the same government that purposely supplied Mexican drug cartels with semi automatic and automatic weapons in order to" back door" the Second Amendment.

    So the question was should a private citizen own a Stinger missile..... the answer is yes but only if you wish to turn it in add a government-sponsored buyback program in order to fuel the latest exaggerated government created crisis

    This is really disgusting how every article posted on this website seemed to be some level of a framed leftist standing point. How incredibly bias can this place get. Time to refer this URL to those people who like to do something to propaganda machines such as this.

    I'm not sure. Are they like the 66mm LAW? The LAW cannot be re-used, or at least it couldn't be re-used during my tours of service. I brought home one with me and eventually gave it away to one of my girlfriend's little brothers. It made a great little make-believe bazooka AND THEY COULDN'T BE RELOADED. If that's the case with the Stinger Launcher, yeah, I can see why someone would want one as a souvenir if they're going to be destroyed after use.
