    What...pray tell, is a REAL ASSAULT RIFLE?

    "Since the Firearms Owners' Protection Act of May 19, 1986, ownership of newly manufactured machine guns has been prohibited to civilians. Machine guns which were manufactured prior to the Act's passage are regulated under the National Firearms Act, but those manufactured after the ban cannot ordinarily be sold to or owned by civilians.Since 1934, there appear to have been at least two homicides committed with legally owned automatic weapons.

    One was a murder committed by a law enforcement officer (as opposed to a civilian). On September 15th, 1988, a 13-year veteran of the Dayton, Ohio police department, Patrolman Roger Waller, then 32, used his fully automatic MAC-11 .380 caliber submachine gun to kill a police informant, 52-year-old Lawrence Hileman. Patrolman Waller pleaded guilty in 1990, and he and an accomplice were sentenced to 18 years in prison. The 1986 'ban' on sales of new machine guns does not apply to purchases by law enforcement or government agencies. "

    GunCite - Gun Control: Machine Guns
    Fully Automatic Weapons remain illegal and are for wannabe-Rambos anyway. Unless you are using it as a portion of a fire and maneuver element, the weapon you want is not a rock-n-roller, but a good semi-auto.

    Of course I would, and it's none of your business as to why. Mind your own beeswax

    And yet, every day some moron will start a new thread about just a little bit of gun control. Already...even thought the "assault rifle" with hi cap mag failed, it didn't "fail" to cause the usual suspects to clamor for bans. Shocking, huh?

    Perhaps someone might be able to direct you to a lawyer to help you interpret the legal definitions I provided.

    still spamming idiocy rather than making salient points? when it comes to laws there are two types of individuals

    those under military law and those who are civilians and answer in civilian court. The FBI, DEA, ATF, state police, city police county sheriffs all are civilians in terms of what laws apply

    so your yapping is just that-yapping

    If you can find an attorney to help you interpret it, here, again are the legal definitions of civilians and police:


    Legal definition of police:
    "A body sanctioned by local, state, or national government to enforce laws and apprehend those who break them.

    The police force as we know it came into being in England in the 1820s when Sir Robert Peel established London's first municipal force. Before that, policing had either been done by volunteers or by soldiers. Police officers in the twenty-first century have technological advantages at their disposal to help them solve crimes, but most rely primarily on training and instinct to do their work.

    In the United States, policing was originally done by the "watch system" in which local citizens would go on patrol and look for criminal activity. As cities grew, so did the amount of crime, and it became impossible to control it through volunteers. In the mid-1840s, New York City established the first paid professional police force in the United States. By the end of the nineteenth century, major cities across the nation had their own police forces. Regional police organizations were also established. Federal policing agencies such as the U.S. Park Police (who patrolled national parks), the Postal Inspectors (who helped ensure safe mail delivery) and the Border Patrol (which kept criminals from sneaking into or out of the country) were introduced. In 1905, Pennsylvania established the nation's first state police; other states quickly followed suit."

    police legal definition of police. police synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.




    Legal definition of civilian: "Civilian is a person not serving in military or a person who does not belong to a particular group or engage in a particular activity. Any activity pursued by an ordinary citizen can be called a civilian pursuit. "

    in Dayton the police will not sign off on Class III stamps. he got the chief LEO consent since he is a cool

    the fact remains banning registration and sales of post May 19, 1986 MGs was not due to crime control
    Try as you might///no one needs a machine gun...unless they want to kill folk.
