Citizens should not own weapons of war

Weapons. Our U.S.A. was started with single-shot mascots, in the 1700s. Most citizens used them to put food on their plates. When war was started, big guns were used. We won at Fort Ticonderoga, we hauled the cannons 200 miles to defend Boston. The weapons of war kept getting bigger, bombs, missiles, tanks, planes, and drones. Only to be used by the military, no one else could possess them. This should be made clear by laws that define what weapons can be used by citizens. All must be able to fire one shot at a time and registered by the owner. No rapid-fire, rounds can only be a certain size. All weapons that are bigger cannot be owned and will be taken away and destroyed. This will help to diminish the gun problem, and will end mass killings.
