Senators Feinstein and Blumenthal react to NRA

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/4254274


What is she talking about when she states there are devices readily available to make them automatic?

If she's referring to DIAS ( drop in auto sear) those are not readily available.

Those are under the NFA act and are tightly controlled. They are classified as a machine gun
and no more them can be manufactured and sold for civilian sales.

4. I would think that most any machinist

can make the parts to make them fully automatic.

7. I know a few who could

maybe not the barrel but the rest for sure. Maybe not heat treated to last like a real one does but good enough to cause a lot of harm to a lot of people before it came apart or melted down.
The trigger part that makes it fully automatic I'd say most machinist could make that part in their sleep. Some can even figure out how to make it even without seeing one to go by.
Get the fucking things off our streets. No citizen needs what is called an assault weapon like these guns are.
