134. A lot of those guns probably WERE supplied by the CIA or KGB, during the 1970's and 1980's
as the U.S. and Soviet Union waged proxy wars in Central America.

The full-auto M16's and AK-47's in Central America didn't come from the U.S. civilian market; they came from military stockpiles, either via military aid to now-defunct resistance movements, or via military aid to corrupt governments that later turned around and sold them on the black market.
