    Run on down to your local class-3 dealer and take a pic of all the modern machine guns they have for sale to the general public.

    You can legally own any machine gun made before 1986 and if you have the proper FFL paperwork, you can own any modern machine gun or you can manufacture your own machine gun. You didn't know that?

    Oh ok, so if you aren't allowed to use technology developed past 1986 to speak or protest than your 1st amendment right isn't infringed upon, right? No internet, no digital cable, no satellite radio, no of that. You're still good, right?

    Put that iPhone down, that was made after 1986, so if you express a religious opinion on it that's a felony.

    What year was the computer you're using right now made? You're expressing a political opinion. If your computer was made after 1986, that's a felony. If you're posting on a website that was made after 1986, that's a felony.

    At what point did you see me post anything anywhere that said I agreed with that stupid law? I merely pointed out that saying all machine gun ownership was banned is incorrect.

    You wanted to say they weren't banned. I'd say they're pretty ****ing banned. The infringement outweighs the technicality allowing you to own an antique.

    The goal of the Hughes amendment is the same as every assault-weapon ban: to "dry out the supply over time". That's a ban.

    As could any of the guns you're pointlessly banging on about.

    Have you noticed they are guns? Purpose built to kill...or do you think they make coffee?
    Well a firearm is a TOOL above all else. Certain firearms are tools of certain trades, for example a Remington 700 series bolt action rifle is built for hunting while a Daniel Defense M4V1 is built for tactical or self-defense situations, and for military applications. Law Enforcement use these TOOLS to apply force and give a backbone to the legitimacy of our laws. It is a tool just like a plow, a screwdriver, a hacksaw, or a pen. Secondly, it is an inanimate object, and by no reasonable means can that be denied. The firearm is NOT going to magically do the lemon dance by itself much less fire off some rounds without an operator. Just like your pencil will not magically start drafting a Ph.D students dissertation without his hand. AS cliche as it sounds.... Guns really don't kill, People do. And you can retort "well that's the same thing drug dealers say about drugs"....Well I'm not advocating the legalization of drugs but....if you don't use them they won't hurt you now will they?

    Nobody cares what "you'd say" or feel about the subject. The fact is machine guns are legal to own, therefore they are not banned. I agree it is an infringement and I agree the intent is to eventually dry the supply out. Currently however, they are not banned and they are legal to own.

    Regardless of whatever hissy fit you'd like to throw.

    There is a ban on modern machine guns. That's just a fact.

    Incorrect again. If you have the proper paperwork, you can own any modern machine gun.
