Granted, I had to go to inverse.com, and who has ever heard of that? We’re probably the only people who will actually read this crap.
Although restrictions do exist on buying, selling, and owning fully automatic weapons â€” also commonly referred to as machine guns â€” these firearms are technically still legal. Some advocates of gun rights, however, have claimed the opposite in arguments.
What I love is that he refers to the federal assault weapons ban later in her article. Was that a ban? Did that make “assault weapons” illegal? Because it did the same kind of grandfathering, only under much less stringent regulation. Look, for all but the wealthy collector, machine guns are effectively illegal. I can’t afford one. Most of you can’t afford one, or maybe you could if you gave up a car or a first born. A lot of people can’t get CLEO sign-off. They are not common.
Gun owners â€” those both with handguns and bigger rifles and shotguns â€” do not need a license to buy and own their firearms, and donâ€™t need to register their guns with the state, according to the National Rifle Association.
So Nevada has registration for smaller rifles and shotguns then? Where did you get that from?
Automatic weapons were also used in the attacks at Orlandoâ€™s Pulse nightclub in 2016, the Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, in 2012, and Columbine High School in 1999, according to a report from anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety.
No, they were not. Those murderers used semi-automatic weapons: one shot for each pull of the trigger. The link to Everytown doesn’t even say anything about weapons used.
