Yeah, true, but when we have the lesbian zombie apocolypse, the only way to kill them will be to sever their spinal cord at the neck, and it may take a few rounds to do that.
Seriously, I know that the best use of the AR is to be able to put 3 rounds in the space of a pin head at 100 yards with iron sights only, but sometimes I gotta cut loose with a burst of wasted ammo ,and the rubber band is the cheapest way to go when I get a case of the stupids. Fortunately, it doesn't happen too often, due to lack of money.

Actually, there are a couple of ways to do this without grinding, machining, or milling. A REGISTERED lightning link will turn an AR into a full auto. If you have a REGISTERED drop in auto sear, you can put a full house of M16 parts in your AR and it will function as a normal select fire. The key word is REGISTERED, and those are running anywhere from 7-10 thousand bucks, as no more machine guns were allowed after the 1986 infamous "Hughes" amendment, (drop in auto sears and lightning links were considered machine guns by themselves),plus the $500 atf transfer fee, which can take from 3-6 months for approval.
