    Discussing this subject will undermine the lies of the Liberal gun control freaks who want you to believe that you can buy a fully automatic machine gun down at your local 7-11.

    In my CHP class we were told that you have to transfer the gun though an FFL if the buyer and seller are residents of different states, even adjacent states. The instructor used WO and SD for his example.

    You actually can be in violation of local laws while transporting the firearm, provided you are following the Federal standards for transporting. An example would be traveling through CA with a hand gun which accepted 19rnd mags. Mere possession of the gun is a felony in CA, but the Safe Passage provision protects you.

    Of course the ban should be lifted, but then so should background checks and the Class III license requirement nonsense.

    No thanks we don't want to have daily repeats of the north Hollywood shootout, once was too much.

    And I don't think that ordinary people should be able to get their hands on m2 machine guns

    Why should you care?

    A $40,000-$60,000 M2 +$7 per round....not very many people can afford that....put the same money into a car and you kill the same number of people, or, 10x as many people with a fraction of the money invested into a bomb.

    To clarify, squads do have 1 machine gunner.

    Re: Should we overturn the 1986 automatic weapons ban?

    before the idiotic asswipe Hughes tried to derail a mainly pro gun bill, there had been maybe ONE case of a privately owned (albeit by a Dayton Ohio police officer) legal machine gun being used in a crime of violence in almost 50 years.

    so what does this prove-Gun haters are not motivated by crime control at all. Why would they ban stuff that had almost ZERO cases of criminal misuse?
