English term or phrase: mount a 50 cal on their bass boat
Personally, I think militia groups are more of an Army problem. I mean, it's easy for a group of redneck Army washouts to grab a bunch of rifles and paint their pick up trucks camouflage, call themselves a militia group. What are sailors gonna do, mount a 50 cal on their bass boat?
