Yes. This isnít perfect, but no compromise is.
No. I donít mind some compromise, but this still takes away too much.
No. We should never compromise our gun rights.
No. This still gives too many gun ownership privileges.
I can hit a target 400 yards away with my eyes closed.
The right to have an abortion is conditional upon you owning a clinic, is what you're saying.
The right to practice a religion is conditional upon you operating a church, is what you're saying.
The right to speak your mind is conditional upon you owning a media outlet, is what you're saying.
The right to petition the government and redress grievances is conditional upon you operating a political organisation, is what you're saying.
What a steaming pile, your argument is.
The individual right to personally own a modern machine gun is being infringed.http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/07pdf/07-290.pdf
...Although one founding-era thesaurus limited “arms” (as opposed to “weapons”) to “instruments of offence generally made use of in war,” even that source stated that all firearms constituted “arms.” 1 J. Trusler, The Distinction Between Words Esteemed Synonymous in the English Language 37 (1794) (emphasis added). Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way. Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications, e.g., Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U. S. 844, 849 (1997), and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, e.g., Kyllo v. United States, 533 U. S. 27, 35–36 (2001), the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.

The only way a non LE citizen can own a post 1986 machine gun is to be a class three dealer with a police department request letter. The other way is to be a Title II manufacturer with government contracts
But you cannot buy a NEW assault rifle. The sale of NEW ones to the public is banned.
