You are wrong on one point here. You do not need a "class 3 weapons license" to own a fully automatic weapon. Any fully automatic weapon made before May 19, 1986 is fully transferable to civilians with a background check, a LEO letter and a $200 tax stamp payable to the BATF. If you register the gun to a trust or corporation you can bypass the LEO letter. This is all provided it is legal to own a full auto in your state. In my state it is legal and I do. There is a lot more detail I could go into but I am not going to hijack the thread.

Taking ammo cost into consideration I thought getting myself a full auto .22 would be fun. Their are several. None under several thousand dollars.
A rich mans toy. Well, rich people and criminals who do t go about things the legal way.
Never mind that as far as destruction and death go semi is superior to full auto. Or that 30 intentional rounds fired are far more worthwhile for better or worse than 30 full auto rounds sprayed.
Was there even a "think of the children" type of catalyst that resulted in the full auto ban? It's one thing to pass a pointless law riding on waves of emotion stupidity but something else entirely to pass one "just because."
