Disband the ATF, and no, they don't perform any "essential functions". Last I checked, alcohol, tobacco, and firearms were all completely legal to buy, own and use. So why do we need an agency whose express purpose is to limit use of said legally owned products?

In addition to having to get ATF approval, one must get the highest ranking member of their local law enforcement to sign off on their application to own a transferable machine gun. They must also give up their 4th Amendment rights, as ATF came come knocking at any time to inspect your weapon, and it's storage. Then, and only then do you get the privilege to spend $12,000 - $25,000 to buy your transferable machine gun. I forgot to mention, the firearm one is looking to own must have been registered as well as manufactured prior to 5/19/1986.

2nd, Assault rifles do have three position selector switches, but the three positions are safe, semi, and either auto or three round burst. (M-16 A1, A3, A4, M4 full auto, M-16 A2 three round burst) The determining factor in whether or not citizens can buy one is not it's fire control setup, but an arbitrary date, on which the erroneously named "firearms owners protection act" was passed into law, May 19th, 1986, anything manufactured after this date is police, military only.

Storm, you have just as much false information there as any liberal media ever puts out. 1st, there is no such thing as an"assault weapon" that is a term created by Josh Sugarmann of the violence policy center to confuse people with little to no knowledge into thinking that "assault weapon" = machinegun. The term for "military grade" weapons as you call them is assault rifle, and is defined as a select fire rifle, firing a medium power cartridge.
