It should be easy enough to determine if any weapons found in the debris after the fire were automatic if the receivers are intact. Most automatic weapons in use today have a selector switch on them. Semi-automatic weapons do not.

No evidence=no reason to MURDER those people.

It doesn't matter if the weapons were legal or illegal - to hole yourself up in a compound and stockpile any kind of weapons makes you a dangerous, anti-government mob. And it seems everyone on this site is just blowing off the fact that they fired upon federal agents! Would you have the same crazy sympathy for a holed-up mafia gang that fired upon the police as they attempted to arrest them?

Twenty years ago, on February 28th 1993, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) launched an assault on the Branch Davidian religious compound just outside Waco, Texas. The resulting siege ended more than seven weeks later, on April 19, but not before claiming the lives of 80 men, women and children -- many burned to death in the final inferno that destroyed the compound.

Even today, videos of the burning buildings remain vivid reminders of an assault gone horribly wrong, from start to finish; and, lessons from what has become known as the “Waco Tragedy” should be borne...
