Yes. We can get them in any configuration (bbl. length, bayo lug, flash hider). But they are classed as restricted just like handguns. Even for .22's and shotguns , we can no longer (scince our new Gun Control Act) just go into a hardware store and buy one without first having a firearms purchasing licence. The restricted class you can not just carry one around with you like you can with a hunting rifle. Y ou need a special permit to take one to the range, and that is the only place you can actually discharge one ( eg. you can't take it over to the freinds farm and shoot it, nor can you carry it in the bush hunting.)
It used to be common to see a rifle hanging in the back window of pickups, but there is getting to be a lot of anti gun sentiment orchestrated by the lobbyists and the gov't. Now you almost feel like you're packing kiddie porn or something and want to keep it hidden.

Buy what you want now in america and canada because the day might be coming for a total semi atuo ban in both countries.. Buy now or forever hold your piece.
