Straight to the cities to harm or threaten people. No one needs a machine gun to hunt with!

It is a Bill of Rights not a bill of needs and it is not about hunting.

Machine guns and guns in general are useful for revolting against tyrannical dictatorships. That's why the founding fathers put the Second Amendment in our Bill of Rights, and that's why the liberal Democrats want to take it out.

Why are you assuming these would be going straight to the cities? Is it becaue there is a demand for firearms by CRIMINALS? Is it because the cities have been coddling the bad guys while tying down the police?

Maybe, just maybe, if the cities cracked down on the bad guys, they wouldn't be trying to get machine guns to enforce their evil codes.

Heck, let's ship some of those machine guns to the police so they can blow away the bad guys and save everyone a lot of grief.

Hope this doesn't burst your bubble, but your sweeping generalization is completely inaccurate. I am a Democrat, liberal on many issues I suppose, and a strong supporter of 2nd Amendment rights. I'm pretty fond of the rest of the Bill of Rights also.

Incidentally, as a student of history I couldn't agree more with your first sentence and even with the first half of your second sentence. You're just dead wrong on the last part. Not all liberals nor all Democrats share the same views - among my own circle of friends and acquaintances (primarily but not exclusively liberal Democrats), I'd guess at least 4 out of 5 support our right to keep and bear arms. As for the others, well, everyone's entitled to their opinion I suppose.

Duly and happily noted. However, the writer's point was that liberal and democrat groups who are unwavering in their attempts to disarm law abiding American citizens is not debateable.

The guy is either stupid or this was an inside job. What better reason do go to a drive thru fast food reataurant then when you have your vehicle full of machine guns.

Auto's are more for investment then actually using them. However who ever stole it better not get caught with it. Major, fed time.
My guess, inside job, gun was probably a piece of junk and more then likely it was over insured.

I understand you need to have a Class 3 FFL to own a truly automatic firearm.

Havin said that, I also understand that most guys who have served in the military prefer not to use their pop guns on full automatic because it eats up so much ammo.

Military usually uses 3 round auto. Class 3 FFl is I think in the low $200.00 range now for every auto weapon purchased. Like I said, ANYONE who gets caught with an unlicensed auto is going to a Fed penitentiary for a while. Not even to mention the other guns.

Some of you democrats say you are for the 2nd. Well, if you voted for the most anti 2nd party in the history of the USA, you will only have to blame yourselves when the 2nd is stripped from the constitution.. Thanks

From what I hear now, they are working to restrict ammunition - drastically. The price will be much higher and each cartridge will be individually encoded. Uncoded, existing stocks will have to be destroyed. Hand loading your own stock will be a thing of the past.

I expected better from our new leader, but I prepare for the worst.

Ammunition Accountability Act
SAMPLE LEGISLATION
An ACT relating to firearms and ammunition; requiring [AGENCY] to establish a statewide
database to track coded ammunition manufactured and sold for handguns and assault rifles.
Section 1. Legislative Findings.
The State Legislature hereby finds the following:
Each year in the United States, more than 30% of all homicides that involve a gun go
unsolved.
Handgun ammunition accounts for 80% of all ammunition sold in the United States.
Current technology for matching a bullet used in a crime to the gun that fired it has
worked moderately well for years, but presupposes that the weapon was recovered by
law enforcement......
