Well, Mr. Self Proclaimed Gun Nut, you've just given a few hundred anti-gun advocates something to point to, misunderstand completely, and cite as a reason why semi automatic weapons should be banned.
Yes, your post came off as alarmist for two reasons:
1. You started it with "OMG" as if you were texting your 15 year old friends, and;
2. You incorrectly declared that semi-automatic weapons were being turned into machine guns.
Maybe if you'd think before you'd speak, you could avoid giving the gun-grabbers something to latch on to in their quest to make firearms look evil. The other thing they're going to point out is that you own an AR-15, despite still being at the mental age where you brag about your genitals on the Internet.

Anyway, if you have a Texas drivers license and the money you can walk into this little shop or any of the hundreds of others and buy a machine gun. You can buy a Machine gun and a silencer. You can buy a car full of them. That's because they are legal. Since it is legal to buy them, I would think it is legal to talk about them. I also thought since I was talking about them in the ATS WEAPONRY forum, it was ok as well.

WHat are you serious, silencers are legal?
I thought silencers were one of the most illegal things in this country. If you get caught with one they automatically charge you with attempted murder.
Is it different state from state? I could have sworn I thought it was federal law.

Any homeowner who thinks bump-firing in his home to stop an intruder is a good idea frankly shouldnt be allowed to look at a rifle let alone hold one.
And I'm the guy who thinks everyone should be armed.
