    Yeah well it was Reagan that made owning a machine gun financially infeasible for the masses.

    Really, and what was a $200 tax on a machine gun during the height of the Great Depression?
    Did that $200 tax make owning a machine gun financially infeasible also?

    No. It didn't. People still bought and sold them. What made it financially infeasible was decreasing the supply. It turned $500 rifles into $15,000 rifles with the flick of a pen.

    $200 during the depression is about $3K today. It's clear who did the most damage.

    The "plan" fails to mention the bigger plan: Marxist Utopia.

    Have you fed a machine gun lately?

    But you can look at it in a different manner. There are very few items that you can buy that you are almost guaranteed to have go up in value. The '86 changes have made it so that you have a stable, actually appreciating, investment.

    You need to look at business opportunity...

    I don't want an investment. I want the freedom to own whatever I like. Artificially affecting the market with laws isn't a good investment anyways, all they have to do is make another law and that "investment" now must be surrendered.

    I already pointed out the fopa was a compromise. One I am glad was made to severely curtail the atf which until then was known to harass ffls out of business and target law abiding citizens to a insane degree. It sucks that you can't buy new manufactured machine guns but I'd rather that be the case than to have gun shops harassed out of business and have the atf going after lawful gun owners.

    If only there was an amendment that prohibited infringement by the federal government and both Democrats and Republicans respected it. What a world that might be.

    It should have been the second amendment created.

    I concur however that was a different time and gun ownership was not as popular back then and people were much more for gun control than they are now. It was the best compromise that could be made. Of course that was back when politicians would actually compromise and make deals now its all my way or the highway.

    It flies in the face of our Constitution. That's the biggest problem. The second biggest problem is when Conservatives give Republican led gun control a pass and call it a compromise but when a Democrat does the exact same thing it's called unpatriotic and unconstitutional. Maybe it's time to drop the hypocritical stance that Republicans are better than Democrats when it comes to restricting citizen's rights.

    We need a law that all bangers must see social workers to deal with their hostilities and issues. That will stop the killings.

    You are assuming that all of them have a conscience - a gracious assumption but doubtful.

    Because that way you can trace all guns found to be used in crimes back to the person who illegaly sold it to a criminal.

    It depends on the source.

    We don't have a national registry and I for one don't want one. Registries historically lead to confiscation. I also don't believe that straw purchases are the primary means in which criminals obtain firearms. I'm going with theft for that one.

    OK, show me where you get your stats from.

    And the reason an American 180 can penetrate bulletproof glass is because it slings them out at 1500 rounds per minute. There was an article in a gun magazine in the late 70's that tested one and they tried it out on bulletproof glass and it made it through in a couple of seconds.
