You're all supposed to be into sharing and openness and other such cutesy stuff.

Or is that just Hollywood making things up again?

Ohmy
I guess it depends on the subject....

Our guns we keep hidden -- but at least some of us (not naming names) can't seem to walk about without our wedding tackle hanging out....

Sometimes when leaving Vermont to head back to Canada I store my Vector in the local police station's armory near where I drill. Several of the police are in my unit and are even more pro 2nd than me, if that's possible. I'm not worried.

And they are restricted to military and law enforcement.

That's not my read. Civilians can own and transfer machine guns with the approval of the ATF is my read.

I remember Piers Morgan going to a range and firing a .50 caliber machine gun. The owner said he bought it as an investment and rarely fires it because he can't afford the ammo.

That's the main perk of staying in the military after I moved to Canada, despite the inconvenience of frequent border crossings.. If I leave, I don't imagine I'd ever get another chance to fire a Mk 19. Couldn't afford to fire a belt fed 40mm grenade launcher machine gun even if I did have one.

That said, I have a bump fire stock for my M4, which essentially makes it a legal automatic weapon, even if I don't usually use it. I like options Tongue

I'm surprised you guys don't have such a database already? Is there any reason not to?

Maryland has such a database for handguns (long guns are not tracked). The ATF can't do it but individual States can.

Canada has had a database for quite a while. Only about 5% of the guns used in crimes actually show up on it, though. Whether one supports the theory of the idea or not, it ends up just being a waste of resources that would be better utilized elsewhere.

I hope I am not the only one on this forum critical of Muffs right now.

He's a dick but...I like him. He makes me laugh. So fuck off!

There's a multiplicity of folks here with whom I've had vigorous discussions without having to wade through what is almost certainly deliberate obtuseness. I don't have to agree with someone in order like them -- but I do have to respect them.

I like Muffs too. He is one of my favorite posters here. But in this instance, he deserves some rebuke.

Sure, if you can find one, if you want to wait months for the licensing, and if you have some major coin.

Only one murder ever occurred in the U.S. with a legally-owned automatic weapon, and that was by a police officer.
They are simply irrelevant in the gun debate.

I've ever known one gun owner who went to the trouble, and that was about 35 years ago.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yup. If you want one you gotta really want one. The FBI background check is the step that takes the longest and if you pass that you're basically cleared to have a Secret clearance. I think this is how it should be. I know a dude who has a machine gun in the Peoples Republic of Maryland but he also has a TS/SCI clearance. FBI background check was not necessary.
