Any semi-automatic rifle (fires one shot every time the trigger is pulled)
A semi-automatic rifle with two or more of the features in the Brady bill.(see OP post)
A rifle that will keep firing bullets as long as you hold down the trigger.
A rifle that will fire 3 bullet every time you squeeze the trigger.
I do not know.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

The mere suggestion of AWB's makes their prices skyrocket. At this point they're making the $200 tax stamp for full auto look cheap.
Who left the fridge open?
oh, wow ... some alternate reality made this all right-align and ALMOST distracted me from posting :
MOST, if not all, semi-autos are re-configurable/re-buildable into FULLY AUTOs,
and I mean, What? All you need is access to ebay, or the like?
And check THIS out:
Guns have already been invented!
REGARDLESS of whether I have access to an ACTUAL "gun,"
at this point?
I can d/l, read, understand and copy ALL of the info!
I don't need what anyone would recognize as a "gun" to shoot someone.
As an example?
I could "shoot" someone with an ice pellet,
and, other than the modus operandi if I did it, AGAIN?
Thank God HE reached down to me, eh?
If folks WANT to kill each other?
They are ONLY limited by their own imaginations,
but if the ACT is the natural progression for their fantasies?
They don't respect the most basic of truths :
Life is a GIFT and to try, or to, steal it from anyone, including yourself,
is denying the God that graced us with it.
After all, if you can build this:
You can make a fully automatic M-16 out of a semi-automatic AR-15.
Now that is a Colt Auto Sear. But if your machining capabilities are not that good, you can make a kludge that works just as well:
For other weapons, you can build one of these, which clips in front of the trigger. Each turn fires another round.
And if you got 2 Ruger 10/22s, you can build one of these:
However, how many of these items have you heard about being used in crimes? None I bet, because the Gatling Gun Ruger is a curiosity, and the finger crank is a fun toy, but highly inaccurate. And many states consider those "Automatic Weapons", and have outlawed their possession.
I do not worry about such things, since if you look at the vast majority of these incidents, the individuals used semi-automatic weapons, not fully automatic ones. In fact, the last time I can remember hearing of a mass shooting with an illegal conversion rifle was the 1997 North Hollywood Shootout. The vast majority of these incidents just uses off the shelf weapons.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. - John Stuart Mill
Isn't the official definition a carbine, or short rifle that has high ammo capacity and selective firing modes?
