Video: Make America full auto again!

1

Pro-gun activists are lobbying Congress to repeal a 1968 gun-grab law that made it virtually illegal to own a fully automatic firearm. Under the 1986 Hughes Amendment, fully automatic weapons manufactured since May 19, 1986 are illegal to own.

Unsurprisingly, the amendment does nothing to prevent crime. Since 1934 only two people have been killed by fully automatic firearms, one of whom was killed by a police officer. The only thing the amendment prevents is the full exercise of a constitutionally protected right.

Repeal of the amendment seems unlikely — but if millions of Americans were to demand it, Congress could be forced to act.

    Stupid “1968 Hughes Amendment”. What good has it yielded? NONE, and it won’t. Woke up to the radio newscast this morning…Drive-by shooting by gang members resulted in the death of an 11 year old girl and a 2 year old toddler riding in his little car. Guess where this happened. That’s right, one of the cities where there are plenty of gun laws and lots of restrictions, maybe the most gun laws in America! You guessed it – lovely Chicago.
    When will the left ever learn? Perhaps they are incapable of learning…logic, reason, history, statistics, and common sense all escape them consistently on a daily basis. While innocent children die as they play.
