130. No, the "assault weapon" issue is solely about non-automatic, NFA Title 1 civilian firearms.
Edited on Fri Feb-27-09 06:19 PM by benEzra
ALL automatic weapons are regulated under the Title 2/Class III provisions of the National Firearms Act of 1934 as amended by the Hughes Amendment to the McClure-Volkmer Act of 1986, and were not affected in any way, shape, or form by the 1994 "assault weapon" fraud.

Possession of ANY automatic weapon, or any weapon easily convertible to full auto, outside of police/military duty or their suppliers, is a 10-year Federal felony right now, under current Federal law, unless you obtain a BATFE Form 4.

I reiterate--the "assault weapon ban" is TOTALLY about non-automatic civilian guns, and does not affect the legal status of a single automatic weapon.
