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.

Thanks for clearing that up. Apparently Storm forgot that weapons have a "safe" setting also. The last thing we need is for anyone to write about something that they don't know much about, and give false info to the libtards of the world.

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.

The tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, has led to a lot of unfortunate misinformation about firearms. Let's try to add some facts to the justified emotion.

Are Some Guns More Dangerous than Others? The shooter in Aurora had three firearms when he entered the theater: a pump action shotgun, a semiautomatic rifle and a semiautomatic handgun.

In a closed, crowded setting like a movie theater, the shotgun was probably the most lethal of the three. Every shotgun shell can spray a half-dozen or more pellets, each capable of killing or maiming a person. Twelve-gauge shotguns often fire five shells, and...
