It should be a little more difficult to obtain a machine gun, and you should be more heavily punished when you commit crime with it...but I think thats about it, no more restrictions.

People don't NEED a H2 or a corvette either, we have them because they're fun and we CAN. I would submit that more people are killed each year with/in high performance sports cars than will ever be acheived with privatly owned full auto weapons.

There's no reason why a private citizen needs a .22 rimfire weapon when there are larger, more powerful weapons to be had. I've got my eye on a 40mm Bofors cannon.

That's retarded. Do you have the same thoughts about long knives, or maybe switchblades? What about big bats? Should drunks in big trucks be punished more than those in little cars?

Bullshit. I say that machineguns (including subguns) should be as readily available as any other type of gun. I also would support the repeal of the NFA of 1934 and ALL gun laws passed since, and the disbanding of the BATF, to be replaced by nobody. Punish criminal acts only, not what you own and use. Machines don't give you criminal intent. It's not illegal to own a car that can do 180 or even 200 miles per hour. Having the capacity to do so is not illegal. Having a fast car doesn't make you a speeder, and having a machinegun won't make you a gangster. If you want to speed, you can manage it in a Dodge Colt, and if you want to rob a bank, you can manage it with a note to the teller and a hand in your jacket pocket. Don't ban or restrict any machine. Just punish crimes, quickly and fairly. The rest will take care of itself if you do that right. CJ

Gotta agree with cmjohnson, 'criminalizing' inanimate objects and substances is simply cretinous. The votewhores KNOW that but use such 'laws' as control mechanisms on the sheeple. Besides, 'need' has NOTHING to do with the legitimacy of inalienable Rights. 'Need' is simply a socialist crutch in an attempt to hold up a fallacious argument. The merits-or lack of-'need' is simply irrelevant. Ghost

On the History channel last week, one of the ‘history of the gun’ series, it reported that since 1934 only 1 crime has been committed [b]with[/b] a legally owned fully automatic weapon, and that was by a police officer. So it would seem to be better to keep fully automatic weapons out of the hands of cops. [:D] SSD

Either it was a long time ago or you saw a post sample. I don't know if you can even touch an M60 these days for less than $15K. Hell, just an M16 at $6000 is a decent price. UZI's are hovering around the $4 - 4.5K.

Oh yeah, that worked well in Iraq where every other camel jockey had an AK-47 stashed in his closet. It didn't affect the totalitarian regime nor did it lengthen the three weeks it took US forfces to overrun the country. Maybe that held water 200 years ago but in the age of tanks, jets and smart bombs, citizens with rifles are powerless.

I can tell you've never tried to buy a machine gun, or even looked at the prices for them. I can't speak for other machine guns, but I saw an M60 priced at $6000. I can't imagine anybody claiming that this is "low priced and readily available", just because there was one for sale. Oh yeah, I forget to mention the Class Three junk paperwork and regulations, of which I am largely ignorant, because I can't afford it.
View Quote
Yes I haven't tried to buy them, nor I have money for that. But I know what it takes to buy a NFA firearm. As I said, if we had no more restrictions than that, there will be no conception of NFA and all automatic rifles, carbines and SMGs $$$ will drop and be more "affordable". M60 and M249s will drop but still these won't very affordable. I know what I've said is kind of nonsense, any sane person will not use it to commit crime nor machinegun is more prone to "mass-killing". Sure it might break a few more windows. But I think the point is machine guns should be used more carefully. There are always whackos using them in bad manner. I also admit my misconception about punishing more heavily when you commit crime with machine guns. My thought was if we did that people with MGs will restrain themselves from using them in crime. (which would only work for sane people, but sane people won't commit any crime with guns, so this is a moot point anyways) (edited to add - thanks for observing my statements. I migrated 2 years ago and I think I still have remnants of demonratic values from my mother country. Trying to be conservative but still..you know.)

I'm guessing that [b]Ponyboy[/b] said that because your comment is a typical one from someone who's only knowledge of these weapons is what they've seen on T.V. BTW .... in mentioning your concern, are you referring to an actual incident in the States, of an automatic weapon being used to kill large numbers of people? [i]Just a friendly suggestion[/i] .... it would probably help your argument considerably if you were able to provide details of your full-auto experience(s). Chris

If there was no NFA, the first thing I would get is M203 for AR15, no questions asked. I still believe controlled semi-auto fire is more deadly than full automatic fire. But that doesn't mean you must not have MG. I'm just saying in terms of ammunition cost it is less effective. (but it does give you suppressive firepower)

Damn, I just paid for one last week and NOW I find out I don't NEED it. Guess I'll just have to live with my mistake. Actually, if I were of the mind to "spray, spray, and spray some more" I wouldn't spend thousands of dollars, go see the Sheriff for his signature, get fingerprinted, send two photos and $200 to the BATF. I'd just take my baseball bat over to Ft Campell and beat the fuck out of some little Army girl and use one your tax dollars paid for. Much simpler and cheaper that way.
Link Posted: 5/7/2003 6:15:39 PM EDT
Machine guns ARE particularly suited to criminal misuse and should be subject to reasonable restrictions that restrict their possession. Like we did in Iraq, we must take a stand NOW to keep these weapons of mass destruction off the streets before innocent freedom loving americans are massacared.
