    I wonder what that costs to run at full speed

    50 caliber BMG is about 3 bucks a round

    40MM 30?

    A lot of people do own them though, and almost none of them ever kill someone with one. Someone (you?) tried to dig up info and found only two cases of it ever happening. Most people who own them have them for collector's purposes or as a play-toy for shooting up stuff on the range. There is no data to support the notion that people buy machine guns only to kill people... in fact the data is very much against that notion.


    And by the way...

    "Assault rifle" =/= machine gun

    twice a year somewhere near Louisville Ky at a place called KNOB CREEK there is a huge automatic weapons owners convention where massive amounts of ammo is consumed and the public can rent and fire machine guns from small stuff like a Mac 11 to a quad fifty

    I don't think anyone has ever been killed or even shot at there

    so the clownish crap that the only reason why people "need" automatic weapons is to kill people is just plain clownish

    I've seen the Knob Creek shoots on TV. Going there and shooting is on my "bucket list."

    No one needs a Cadillac CTS either. But that isn't what this is about, is it?

    years ago I had a client who was a title II manufacturer before the idiotic Hughes Amendment. He had obtained certain de-milled Title II weapons from a scrapper who dealt with the navy and he was going to cosmetically restore the weapons for use in movie sets. Well the CID shows up at his door and claims the weapons (grenade launchers) were not properly de-milled and thus contraband. So he calls me and I review the rules-I agree with the regs and tell my client to give the navy the 1000 dollars worth of scrap but I told the CID guy that the weapons were still un operational

    the navy agreed and gave him back the junk and he duly "restored" them sufficiently for film use.

    he invited me done to Knob Creek to shoot his 303 Vickers and his Ma Deuce Browning-sadly I was in trial at the time-I then switched to another position at another law office and lost track of the guy but after the Hughes Amendment he went back to being mainly a machinist and fixing broken TItl II stuff rather than making it

    Other than oxygen shelter, water and food the term NEED is sort of silly

    I NEED weapons when others think that they should tell me what I need and restrict me to only owning such things

    That is the legal definition of civilian. If you had read even further, you would have learned that back before the 19th century we actually had civilian volunteers serving as police. By the end of the 19th century however all the civilian forces had been replaced by a professional trained police force.

    you are still clueless-on why this is important in the gun debate
    when it comes to law police are civilians as opposed to being in the military. that is why city state and federal law enforcement agencies are called civilian law enforcement


    remind me of what you do for a living catawba. I notice no police officers or prosecutors or federal agents have come forward to support you
