    WEST HAVEN, Conn. -- A machine gun was found in the car of a man wanted on domestic violence charges, according to police.

    Ralph Marchitto was arrested Wednesday night after, police said, officers discovered in his car a hunting rifle that had been altered and turned into a semi-automatic weapon.

    Police said that Marchitto had also made threats against police officers.

    "We did receive information that Marchitto had made threats against the police department, especially with the use of a gun if he were to encounter the police officers. Obviously we were very concerned for our safety as well as the safety of the public," said West Haven officer Martin Garcia.

    Police said Marchitto's car was spotted Wednesday night at a local bar.

    "They found the machine gun that was in his vehicle as well as 200 rounds of ammunition, two knives … as well as manuals that indicated how to modify a rifle to make it automatic," Garcia said. "The rounds will fire at 2,000 feet per second, and between 750 and 900 rounds per minute when it's in fully automatic mode. There is no reason for someone to have this type of weapon, it is illegal in the state of Connecticut."

    Officers said that drugs were also discovered on Marchitto, who was also wanted on domestic violence charges.

    Marchitto is facing numerous felony charges.

    So I looked at the video and then googled the book.

    It's an M1 carbine, and the book is about how to make it FA.

    SURE it could fire 750 rounds a minute, if it was BELT FED.

    :uh:

    Yep, I would like to know if it was really F/A, granted the guy sounds like a scumbag and its good he's off the streets but this just one horribly written news report. Do they just hire anyone off the streets now a days to be a news writer?

    3 rnd burst helps for the mp5. on an m1 carbine muzzle flip would have you off target in the first couple of rounds. Also mp5 is a lot more compact than an m1carbine(regular stock, not paratrooper). Also, Rarely would you ever see anyone flip the happy switch all the way to full on an mp5, there's no point with that small of a mag and that high of a cyclic rate unless you just want to show off.

    What the hell, I don't understand. I know im not stupid, but they modified a M1 to be a semi-auto machine gun that shoots 700 rpm? What am I missing here?

    yeah, so when you run out of baby killing bullets, you can take off the bayonet and summon the baby killing demons with the bayonet.

    I heard Theodore Roosevelt used to use a specially chambered hunting rifle in .30 carbine to take down Cape buffalo.
