So do you think it is a great idea for lots of Americans to own assault rifles?

Yes, except for felons and the mentally ill.

Is there any weapon that Americans should not be allowed to own?

I think we should use the "in common use at the time" test.

United States v. Miller (as cited in District of Columbia v. Heller) found that the Second Amendment applied to guns “in common use at the time".
