Stan: Hmm I was under the impression that full auto weapons are illigal to have since the 80s in the usa looking at the footage that was full auto no mistake
As I've mentioned before, when I attended a gun show in Alabama, you could buy semi-automatic assault rifles.
... plus the kit next to it to turn it into a fully automatic weapon for $10.
Neither by themselves were illegal, but signs were posted saying "Please don't combine these two products to create a fully automatic military grade weapon ... that would be illegal."
All that was missing was "wink, wink"
I get tired of Americans saying "Don't politicize this mass murder .. the bodies aren't even cold yet."
In Sandy Hooks, the bodies of the murdered children are cold and rotting . Has anything improved?
No, in fact a US bill to make gun silencers easier to attain was quietly making it way to Trump's desk.
When it inevitable reaches his desk, the murdered festival goers will also be cold and rotting. I'm sure he'll sign it.
I'm sure the vast majority of AMerican police don't want any sort of assault rifle in the public's hands. And I'm also sure they don't want silenced hand guns on the street.
So perhaps if dead children and festival goers aren't going to change their minds, give a thought to the police.
