Doing it that way will it stop midstream on a mag or not? Can you release the trigger and stop it from shooting in other words. A friend had a problem with that. Was made full auto but wouldn't stop until bullets ran out. It was funny as crap the first test run. Should have maybe only loaded a few rds.

That is exactly what happens

The gun may also just start firing when you load a round into the chamber

Exactly what one would expect from a liberal socialist, deflecting statements of no substance.

A gun is a means of protection, and protected as a right by the Bill Of Rights. There are millions of them in this country. They are responsible for far fewer deaths daily in this country than automobiles!

Sounds like you are speaking from experience.
Law abiding people don't do such things. But the laws you want passed will punish them for it anyway.
Btw, when was the last mass shooting with a full auto you can think of? The last one I remember was the bank robbery in Los Angeles well over a decade ago.

Tax ammunition $5.00 tax per shell.
I love how you cradle to gravers want to tax anything that you don't like. I guess it never crossed your mind that more people will learn how to reload their own shells, or the fact that it would increase black market value, theft and death.

If taxing things is how you get rid of something, then maybe when the Republicans gain leadership again, we should tax the poor since they pay nothing into the system anyway. The more you tax the poor, the less poor we will have.

See how your logic works?
