full auto, would you be for it?

Let’s pretend that, beyond all our wildest dreams, a Vote to allow the average person to purchase a fully automatic weapon alongside a semiauto rifle and for the same price. Would you be for or against it?
Would you support anyone that can now purchase a firearm be able to purchase any fully auto magic rifle? Would you be against it? If so, why?

The Second Amendment is there for the citizenry to protect itself from a tyrannical government. If that is interpreted to it's fullest extent, "the citizenry" should be allowed to have any weapon the representatives of the tyrannical government has. In that sense, sure, you should be able to own a fully automatic weapon.

Having said that, I'm not sure that I (a) want one myself because I don't like to waste ammunition and I'm sure I could waste a lot with a full auto, and (2) I'm not sure that i want my neighbor to have Cruise missiles if they want one!

I've always wanted a tank. A tank would be real cool. Abrahms tanks are pretty cool. Ammo might be a bit salty but boy would that be pretty neat on July 4th. The ultimate BBQ gun. Think of the fun driving up the street to someone's BBQ party. Yeah. I'd be the talk of the town alright.

Why didn’t you add free ammo to the dream....that doesn’t weigh 100 pounds/minute? Stash 1000 rounds of ammo in a can and jog around the block, let me know how that works out.

Would you prefer another lube thread? With everything that has gone on the past few days a trip to lala land is not a bad idea. It sure as hell beats listening to the politicians try to turn tragedy into votes.

Aside from always wanting a full-auto M1 Thompson I don't think my collection would change much. My ARs would of course have that third position on the safety, but I doubt I'd ever use the feature much. The thing about full-auto is that it's fun for maybe a couple of minutes, then you soon get bored with it and realize that you're just burning up expensive ammo.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Full auto would be fun for about a minute. Cause that's how long your ammo would last.

To answer your question, a full auto gun is no bigger threat to society than a semi-auto when in the hands of a law abiding citizen. So I think they should be legal to purchase without the whole pre '86 restrictions.

I also believe that if normal citizens aren't allowed to purchase full auto then law enforcement shouldn't have them either(I'm sure it's not that common except specialized units).

If full auto was readily available to normal people, I would never buy another semi-auto.

I'd love to own a FA Thompson Sub-machine gun in 45 just for fun...And if a mass-shooter break's in my house while I am virtually shopping at the mall from my home internet connection I guarantee the 45 holes will put him/her (need to be PC here) down faster then any 223/556 at close-quarter's!!! :-0 Nuttin like a Tommy Gun.

Iím sorry , your royal crabbiness. Beside giving a bit of fun distraction there is a very very serious question here. If you canít grasp that without having your hand held then Iím sorry. I didnít expect you to be someone tht would wiff on the question entirely.

Some of the people coming into my gun range now are scary enough in terms of how they handle firearms. I can imagine those jack wagons with a full auto and trying to fire it under control.

I could go for Ruger 10/22 in full auto. It would be great fun to chase a rabbit with. Any centerfire would be too expensive to shoot. And after the first shot it would no longer be aimed fire.

I might support it with addtl qualifications. FA is not for everyone. And we can all remember the girl shooting the Uzi who accidentally killed the instructor standing right next to her as an example. Somebody would want a video for Facebook and let their kid shoot their gun and the child would wind up spraying everyone and everything.
Right now as it is I hate to say it but the cost of full auto weapons keeps the yayhoos away from them which may be a good thing.

Oh heck yeah, I'd get an auto sear pack for everything I have that can use one. ARs, G3, SCARs, AKs, M1A, all the PCCs and SMG type guns and all the Glocks too.

Always fun to have the 3rd/4th settings!

I have next best thing, a binary trigger. Runs as fast and in some cases faster than full auto, but they are a pricy trigger. It was worth it.

Such a thing would never be put to a vote. And, the price is market driven. Also not subject to a vote.
