    If not, then you need to learn how to read.
    Your call.
    And I've explained to you that it's not as simply as wanting to be a reporter and having a broadcasting license. Even with a broadcasting license you still need other legal documents acrediting you as a reporter if you plan on reporting anything more important then ducks swimming in a pond. You don't simply get to walk into the White House press room because you say you're a reporter.

    This attempted parallel fails on more than one level.

    The Constitution protects the right to free speech, not the right to broadcast on a certain band of the EM frequency.

    If you broadcast on a frequency you haven't rented, it is like stealing a gun.

    Even though the Second amendment gives you the right to keep and bear, it does not give you the right to steal your arms from your neighbor.

    I'm glad I missed most of this thread while I was on vacation.

    For one who attacks others on alleged ignorance, you should be informed as how to turn a rifle like the Steyr AUG into a belt fed machine gun without having to significently redesign the weapon.

    so you are going to teach me about weapons platforms?


    Not all "machine guns" are belt fed.



    Steyr aug LMG (light machine gun)

    Steyr AUG-LMG (AUG-HBAR) - Light Machine Gun - History, Specifications and Pictures - Infantry Weapons

    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_gun[/ame]


    A machine gun is a fully automatic mounted or portable firearm, usually designed to fire rifle cartridges in quick succession from an ammunition belt or large-capacity magazine, typically at a rate of several hundred rounds per minute. The first weapon that falls under this definition was the Maxim Gun, invented by Sir Hiram Maxim in 1884.

    In United States law, machine gun is a term of art for any fully-automatic firearm, and also for any component or part that will modify an existing firearm into a fully-automatic firearm.[1]




    If you are going to read another post and pretend to know about something, perhaps you should at least google something before you make yourself look silly and be left with your blatant ignorance in full plumage!
