    I wish it were possible for normal people to own fun stuff. For me $200 is a decent chunk of change (not that it matters in MI) to shell out just to register a suppressor or SBR. And in most households buying an old beat-up machine gun (or a few pieces of machined metal) for the cost of a new car is out of the question. Really a shorter barrel or quieter report doesn't make the weapons more deadly in the hands of criminals. Also, aside from that fact I doubt a significant portion of violent crime is committed with NFA items registered or not (ie home made).

    You could argue that a FA would be more devastating in a high profile shooting, but really if you're going to go on a murder spree the ATF is going to be the last thing on your mind. Let's face it, two of the most popular rifle designs (AK/AR) are pretty easy to convert to FA with either easily attainable parts or even with household items if you're crafty enough. Even still most high profile shootings are with standard, legal guns.

    So my solution? Make SBR and suppressors legal with no registration. Maybe make sales and transfers go through an FFL and run a standard background check to make some of the liberals feel better. To deter their use in crime give it a mandatory sentence on top of whatever they used it for.

    FA would be trickier and I'll give the liberals this one, they have a far greater potential to be devastating. How do you guys think it would be ideally handled? Maybe go thru a FFL for manufacture, sale, and transfer of FA firearms along with some sort of mandatory registration that requires some sort of competency test and full understanding of what will happen if used in a crime. Dunno, what do you guys think?

    Ever since all the April fool's day jokes about NFA being repealed I've been thinking about what I would be like if NFA stuff was legal.

    Cliffs: suppressor/sbr restriction and registration is pointless. NFA in general should loosen up because for the most part these are basically novelty items and rarely turn up in crimes. Not sure how full autos should be regulated, so I'm curious what you guys think.

    Disclaimer: I know this is a wet theoretical dream and it will probably never happen, but humour me. Maybe some day well get a president that hascommon sense AND respects the constitution. (but don't hold your breath)

    FA will solve itself when gangbangers end up losing control while firing and make themselves easier to shoot.

    Just be glad that they didnt raise the price because of inflation. $200 was a lot more back then.

    yeah I know $200 was a lot back then but the NFA was basically an attempt to keep SBRs out of the hands of petty criminals and increase sentences for crminals doing stupid shit.

    I hope they keep inflating the dollar. Soon a tax stamp will cost as much as a big mac :bowdown:

    I'd go against your average shooter with a FA more comfortably than one armed with semi-auto, as would I feel perfectly confident in my chances being armed with a semi vs a FA shooter.

    It takes quite a bit of practice to hit anything with more than a 2-3rd burst. A lead hose is cool but only hits count, and 99% of people, myself included, will get more hits with a semi.

    Cans should not be restricted. Nor should FA in my opinion.

    cliffs: you are broke

    I personally like the NFA law, I think it keeps the weapons in the hands of responsible people who can also afford to lock them up appropriately

    BRO, YOU DON'T HAVE SUPPRESSORS FOR EVERY GUN YOU OWN?

    GOD, YOU FUCKING FAIL AT LIFE

    YOU SHOULD KILL YOURSELF FOR NOT HAVING A TRUST FUND. I WORKED HARD FOR THAT TRUST FUND.
     
  20. :rofl: @ the trolling

    Anyways, remember when you posted a thread about how you thought someone was trying to break into your house or something, but all your NFA stuff was locked up safely, and the only thing you had to defend yourself was a shotgun with 2 rounds for it? :rofl:

    I wouldn't want to use any NFA items for home defense anyway. :o
     
  22. The point was that as much bragging about all of this NFA stuff as he likes to do, when he thought he really needed a weapon all he had available was a shotgun with 2 rounds in it. The point of the discussion in that thread was that while the NFA stuff is fun to play with (and brag about if you're him) it's important to have guns that are actually accessible and usable for likely scenarios.

    Fucking hell that's right. Even one of my co workers who was sort of anti-gun, a while back came in bitching that her husband went out and bought a shotgun for home defense without asking her first. I empathized a little and had a little discussion about how they have a child now and a home, and he just wants to make sure they're safe in case someone tries to break in or whatever.

    She goes "Yeah, that's true. But he bought a lock for the trigger and put it up in a closet unloaded!! I said, what the hell good is that going to do unloaded if someone breaks in here?!"

    :rofl:
