It depends on what licenses you can manage to secure. With the right permits and some money you can own just about anything. - Link

If you are asking how far the right should be taken in interpretation, then that is a different story.

If you are an oppressive country, a militaristic police agency or large corporation that makes movies or has some other excuse it is easier to obtain those things legally - private individuals are second class citizens in this respect and have much less in the way of legal rights. From your list, the only thing I might be able to legally posses where I live is some type of tear gas (with the proper licensing or membership in a militaristic police agency).

If I were you, i'd first worry about getting a second or third job to save up the money, hell assault rifles alone are expensive as shit.

If you've got the money and a clear background, you can probably apply for permits for anything. Individual people have blasting permits and permits allowing them to make high explosives in their home laboratories. I know people that have had class III FFL's or had the background check to own title II weapons. Silenced pistols kick ass.

I'm pretty sure that you can own as many semi-auto weapons as you want. Fully auto are illegal for non-military citizens. Armed helicopters, tanks, explosives? I don't know for sure. You might be able to get permits, but otherwise they would be illegal as fuck.

It all also depends on what you want to do with your arsenal. If you are trying to make a militia you will have feds on your ass in a heartbeat!

Do what we did with Iraq back in the ol' days. Buy a bunch of Dual Use equipment, and convert it.
