Getting rid of/removing privelages to things like this generally does not bode over well because a lot of higher ups/a handful of people in a high position or with the association that distributes them ask for results, they ask for statistics, numbers, ratios. Flat out banning grenade launchers without reasons like those would probably bother a lot of said people.
I don't think civilians should have grenade launchers, but there's no way to just flat out remove them due to the way the distributors would be about, say, profits and such. They WOULD want statistics, and they'd grasp for every straw to continue selling said product because it makes money.
While I agree it shouldn't really be sold like this, I don't think just flat out banning it/removing it would boil over well due to...stinginess and profits made. Granted I doubt the audience behind a grenade launcher is really, uh...big, but if it makes any smidgeon of profit, they'll want it to be there.
I ain't saying they SHOULD sell them. But I really doubt they're going to stop selling them anyways, unfortunately.It doesn't make it right, and as such, considering how wrong it is to just sell grenade launchers to civilians, the poor feelings of the sellers should really be completely disregarded. That is, if anyone actually wanted to make it happen.
Just because it would be difficult, doesn't mean we should give up on trying to do it. These people shouldn't have the right to stop that from happening, and you shouldn't think "they'll do everything they can to stop it". If you say "let's talk about fixing that", then when someone's hurt feelings make him scream at you, if it's enough to make you say "okay, forget I brought that up" then you really shouldn't participate in this. Help those who really want to change that, and don't tell them to stop as soon as someone stands in your way.
They would want statistics ? Fuck them. They should not have a say in this.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
