Damn the NFA

The National Firearms Act prevents me from owning Class III (fully automatic firearms) without obtaining the appropriate license from the government an obvious intrustion upon my freedoms as granted by the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Add to this the fully automatic manufacturing ban (for private citizens) driving up the price of legally transferrable fully automatic firearms to the point that the average man cannot own one and what you have is an effective ban on ownership of what would be considered effective small arms.

Example XM-177 for 12,000, a weapon which should cost no more than $1200 retail.

I am very aggravated that they prevent me from owning many wonderful weapons like the above XM-177 or the below CZ 2000 a lovely folding stock fully auto carbine.

Rant mode off.
