Default Heavy Weapon Team Question

Something that occurred to me while I was idly flicking through my imperial guard codex. Do heavy weapon teams (either as support squads or as part of an infantry squad) keep their lasguns as well as selecting a heavy weapon? The codex says nothing to clarify this.

One fella to fire/carry they heavy weapon and the other carry the ammo and can carry his own lasgun. So, if on the move, one of them can fire his lasgun while the other with the heavy weapon can't fire because he has to carry the heavy weapon. Hope this helps

Hang on, no, no, no! Where the hell are you getting this stuff?!

Guardsmen, if listed as having lasguns, can use them...whether they've also got heavy weapons or not. You can apply whatever logic you like to it, but there's nothing in the rules stopping a heavy weapon team from firing their lasguns.

Besides, look at the size of most heavy weapons and tell me they're not a two-man lift!

No they can. It's just rapid fire lasguns.

But if your moving your heavy teams something is wrong.

How about moving them in a better firing position because I screw up my deployment or no targets are in LoS of any of my Heavy Weapons and I want to move my Leman Russ forward but the Infantry are blocking the way?

Well that would be a couple examples of something being wrong.
