I have a poster who says that fully auto weapons made after 1986 are not effectively banned.


Is he right?

This is what I found:

Federal law prohibits the possession of newly manufactured machine guns, but permits the transfer of machine guns lawfully owned prior to May 19, 1986, if the transfer is approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives. As a result, a substantial number of machine guns are still in circulation. As of February 2018, the national registry of machine guns contained registrations for 638,260 machine guns.1

Which means, that unless the law is changed, those 638,260 machine guns are the maximum legally in circulation in the US...
That's why they are so massively expensive

If you become a dealer of manufacturer you can own them. by definition, they are not banned.

no. we already established in the other threat that that is a moronic comparison. Nuclear weapons are not "arms" as defined in the constitution and supreme court.

that you don't know that that is exactly what we are discussing, is why you have no business posting about this topic.

irrelevant. the law is quite clear. Your claim that they are banned is demonstrably false.
No one is buying what you are selling bud. LOL

irrelevant to the fact I've shown you that your claim is false. I gave you the law showing they are not banned. Just restricted.
