    Civilians cannot own modern machine guns and artillery. That's a ban. I'm not a collector of curio and relic, I'm a user of modern arms.

    Likewise, no firearm should have to be registered.

    I really thought we could own machine guns, we just have to pay a tax.

    only those made and registered with the ATF before May 19, 1986. You have to be a class III dealer with a police letterhead request in order to possess one made after that date

    You can't own anything made or registered after May 1986.

    Forget all about Colt's latest M16, the newest machine gun a civilian can own will be 27 years old.

    It takes between 8-16 months to get the stamp before you can even buy the weapon. Once you buy the weapon the individual transaction has to be approved through the ATF, taking even more time. You have to get permission from your sheriff, and the sheriff can rescind that permission at any time fro any or no reason at all. If a new sheriff comes into office and decides " machine guns are iky, turn them in", you have to turn your weapon in. And you have to have annual inspections of the firearm. And you're home is subject to surprise ATF inspection.

    That's a ban.

    Depends on how you define a modern machine gun. A civilian can own an M-2, M-16, M-60 etc. Probably not a SAW, but then again, I doubt there are any SAW's in ciruculation outside the US military, or other national militaries that we've sold them to.

    They were making Maw-Deuces prior to May 1986. I used to be 1/3 owner in a Maw-Deuce and a half own of an M-16.

    Made this year. Colt's 2013 version of the M16. Modern, recent, current. Pick your synonym.

    What if you could only own a computer made before May 1986....when I say I want a modern computer I'm talking about Samsung Galaxy S4, not a pre-Tandy with 4 megs of memory and maybe a rudimentary dial up modem if I'm lucky. I want the 4G network of firearms.

    You know what? Forget that. Google Glasses will evolve into contact lenses in a couple years...I want the Google contact lens of firearms. I want suppression, I want 7.62 ful auto, forward grip, collapsing stock, I want no questions asked.

    Getting a gun should be a free and protected as getting an abortion. At least the person I kill will have committed a crime first.
