The first being, who in Los Angeles had military-grade rocket launchers in their house(s)?Actually, considering the city, I do not find that one particularly difficult. The answer I would propose is:
Anyone who is a character in an action movie made within the last ten years.The more interesting question, which action-movie scriptwriters tend to ignore as a messy detail, is:
How could someone living in Los Angeles come to possess that weapon in the first place, particularly someone clueless enough to let on that (s)he has the weapon by exchanging it for a Ralph's card?Then there is the question for all of us who feel frustrated at the intransigence of the National Rifle Association, based on their current philosophy of arming teaching in classrooms:
Is the only solution to "a bad guy with an anti-tank rocket launcher" going to be "a good guy with an anti-tank rocket launcher?"Shouldn't we be asking what anti-tank rocket launchers are doing in a supply chain directed at the general public and how they got there?
