what other use do you need your gun for? Exept for killing that is. Please enlighten me.
There are 15 Olympic events that involve shooting guns.
People use guns to hunt and provide food for their families.
A gun can be used as a deterrent to stop a crime without being fired.
Guns are used for target shooting. Fun and recreation.
Protection for people and livestock from wild animals.
And you need an automatic weapon capable of murdering a hundred people a minute for those things? No, thought not.
I really don't see how you get using automatic weapons for hunting. I really don't. How about this, why do lamborghini's exist, ferrari's,
Buggahti's? What need does a man for 500-600 hp v10 and v2 engines capable of reaching 0-60 mph within 2 seconds and past 200 mph at max speed when
the max speed limit in most countries is 70 mph? 80 mph? Why do you need to reach 0-60 in 2 seconds when 80% of the time your in stop light traffic?
Why do individuals find the DIRE need to purchase a $1.2 million dollar home with 13 bathrooms 20 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 5 lofts, a golf course in the
backyard, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, an indoor cinema, a butler, a maid, a chauffeur, a patio, a beach front view, and a genuine Star Wars
Chewybacca mask used as part of the original costume that's worth over a million dollars?
Oh yeah, by the way, what's this?
Q: The types of firearms that must be registered in the National Firearm Registration and Transfer Record are defined in the NFA and 27 CFR, Part 479.
What are some examples?
Some examples of the types of firearms that must be registered are:
The frames or receivers of machine guns;
Any combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting weapons into machine guns;
Any part designed and intended solely and exclusively for converting a weapon into a machine gun;
Any combination of parts from which a machine gun can be assembled if the parts are in the possession or under the control of a person;
Silencers and any part designed and intended for fabricating a silencer;
Destructive devices; and,
“Any other weapon.”
Oh yah, and not to mention the $200 tax, and a susceptible check-up by an ATF representative at any given time should they choose to do so. That in
any case any registered when isn't is as it's supposed to be or doesn't exist (Sons of Guns incident), then problems immediately pursue.
Also, it is very expensive to buy and automatic weapon, a simple m-16 or m-4 would cost the average citizen around $6000 at the very least, and that's
probably pre-ban which is before 1990's or 80's. It is also very expensive to fire that much ammunition, so to do so would be impractical.
And why would we want to hunt with an automatic rifle when the whole point of hunting is mostly to get produce or garnish a trophy. Such a silly
assumption and accusation.
Simply put, an automatic rifle is nothing more than a freedom. Albeit one that very few take part. It is no different then spending hundreds on
fireworks on new years eve only to see it explode into colorful sparks and noises seconds later.
