sano,it's perfectly legal to own various models of full auto guns — RadishYou got a class 3? it's been illegal to import or domestically produce machine guns since 1986.What does owning a gun have to do with importing or producing a gun? Nothing.It is in fact perfectly legal to own various models of full auto guns in the US, exactly like I said.I stand corrected. The shooters primary gun, an UZI, was configured for semi-auto.There's been a thread on this on the Conservative Fools board. The use of full auto weapons in the US is incredibly rare. I posed the question of whether there has ever been a (non-Mafia) mass murder in the US where an automatic weapon was used. No one can think of any. There was a mass shooting, the North Hollywood Shootout in which semi-auto guns had been modified for full-auto operation, but no one was killed except the bank robbers themselves.So it's very strange when people call for a ban on full-auto weapons in response to mass killings... seeing as how apparently it has never even happened.Phil
