ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER

Edit: For the record, since the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act of May 19, 1986, ownership of newly manufactured machine guns has been prohibited to civilians. Machine guns which were manufactured prior to the Act’s passage are regulated under the National Firearms Act, but those manufactured after the ban cannot ordinarily be sold to or owned by civilians.

To become a registered owner, a complete FBI background investigation is conducted, checking for any criminal history or tendencies toward violence, and an application must be submitted to the ATF including two sets of fingerprints, a recent photo, a sworn affidavit that transfer of the NFA firearm is of “reasonable necessity,” and that sale to and possession of the weapon by the applicant “would be consistent with public safety.” The application form also requires the signature of a chief law enforcement officer with jurisdiction in the applicant’s residence.

Also, yes. The M240 is, strictly speaking, a medium machine gun intended to lay down suppressing fire and no, it likely wouldn’t be capable of killing thousands. That was sarcasm, douche.

That being said, this post was intended to show the difference between what uneducated pundits believe is an “assault rifle” (which has no strict definition) and what is a piece of hardware actually USED for assaulting enemy locations. You give a Marine the choice between an M4 and an AR-15 and he’ll laugh for a moment, then grab the M4 with a stern, I’m-not-fucking-amused look on his face.

    The term “assault rifle” is fucking media and government propaganda. Oh wait…they’re the same entity. My bad.
