Regulating any type of firearm is illegal according to the 2nd amendment. Our govt (its pigs) will arrest you if they 'think' you're violating any of their 'illegal' gun laws.

Yeah you got it totally right to me it would be the pain in the ass of haveing to deal with the DOJ. Damn in California if you don't have a safe and some kid broke into your home and stole and had some fun they would string you up. I am working on getting a FFL and opening a store but ever then to much trouble.

Until they gut all the redtape BS and stipulations concerning with buying/owning/storing a machine gun, I am not planning to buy/own one or even have my AR modified to fire fully automatic. But if they did lax it like before the NFA law of 1934 (forgot what year), I'd have my RRA LAR-15 modified for full auto and 2 shot bursts. And if I do choose a submachine gun, it be an H&K MP-5 in .40 S&W. Until that happens, they are a pipedream.

the only safe way to modify and ar is to put select fire in the lower and change the bolt carrier. The mods are totally visible you would have to keep the gun burred in the back yard. You can spend allot of money in a few minutes in auto. I would rather shot longer distance. I have on AR with a 20 inch fluted stainless barrel great varmint gun.

I don't think that red tape will disappear any time soon if ever. And if you live in California the laws get real stupid. I am going through the red tap of my concealed carry at the moment.
