152. Fully automatic firearms have been strictly regulated since 1934
The expired AW ban was about semiautomatics. In fact, the actual term in the US Code for them was "semiautomatic assault weapons".

I've personally been battling that propaganda-fed disinformation for over 15 years now. I'm sure you are in intelligent, educated, and generally well informed person badgervan, but you've had the wool pulled over your eyes on this issue.

The reason polls show public support for a renewed AW ban is precisely because so many people have been fooled into thinking that it's about machineguns.
