    By all means, feel free to say whatever you think. Go buckwild with it - really let loose.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Please educate yourself before making ridiculous comments.
    Pulleeze. Even if I'm stupid I'm entitled to my opinion. Why I've seen that hundreds of times on DP. ;-)

    The extended magazine on that Glock was illegal until 2004.

    I do not think you are in a position to grant me immunity.

    It's unfortunate when one doesn't know how to express an opinion without infracting...My heart goes out to you.

    BTW, if they are actual machine guns, call the ATF and you can get the store owner in a ****load of trouble. Automatic weapons have to be locked up in a vault, at all times, unless the weapon is being transported from one place to another and then, it can only be possessed by a class 3 Federal Firearms License holder.

    You can't shoot through walls very effectively with a shotgun.
    Well, that's interesting. What are they then? What looks like a machine gun that isn't a machine gun? As to your last sentence, why is that a bad thing? Got X-ray vision?

    Edit: It is illegal for an individual to possess a machine gun in Illinois. Can only be owned by a dealer with a Class III license...whatever that is. Thanks for the education. Maybe they're just on display....?

    So, before 2004, you could shoot 15 rounds vice 30? Loughner only scored 18 hits. And that's assuming that one bullet didn't hit two targets.

    My knowledge of guns is quite - very - completely limited. But I know that ordinary people like me ought'nt be able to walk into a gun shop and buy these kinds of weapons. And I sure can now.
    how can you tell

    YOu are completely clueless about gun laws

    you can not buy an automatic short of a 6 month background check

    do you know what a selector switch is


    the only difference between an ar-15 and an M-16 is? at 4 feet you cannot tell the difference

    its a very tiny little difference inside the weapon
