Hmmm! He already knew about machine pistols the MP 38 and MP 40.
The original name was MKb 44 or Machinekarabiner after Hitler baulked at MKb it was later changed to or StG 44 Sturmgewehr.
Who called it a MP 44 is not known, either Gen. Jaschke or Hitler himself, personaly my money is on Jaschke.

What our opponents don't tell the general population who generally are not familiar with one end or another when it comes to semi auto Martica rifles and
pistols. Do you consider a Roger 10/22 an assault rifle ? I don't but the AFT does so you need to be very careful when dealing with our government 's list
is just plain ridiculous!!! It doesn't make sense and let's hope it changes and they forget it.

Actually the original name for the Sturmgewehr 44 was the MP 43. That was what it's designer named it. Hitler initially forbid it from being manufactured but when it was demonstrated to him he realized how useful it was and renamed it "Sturmgewehr 44" which means "Storm Rifle" or "Assualt Rifle". The Sturmgewehr 44 is refered to as the granddaddy of the modern assualt rifle.

I have some doubts about that. Many of the current crop of Democrats remember what happened to their majority in Congress after the 1994 ban went into effect. I don't think they want to bollox up their current majority in 2010 by ticking off the voters yet again.

As for any licensing, if you want to own an assault weapon (the "military" definition of a weapon with selective fire...semi-auto and auto) I believe you need a Class 3 license to own automatic weapons. As for any limits, as others have posted, it's all dependent on your finances. Currently I own an AR-15 and am waiting for an AK-47 and Mosin-Nagant to be delivered to my local gun shop (weapons bought online can only be shipped to a facility that has an FFL). The Nagant isn't an assault weapon (bolt action rifle) but the AK is (as per the Clinton definition). Here in Nevada, there are no limits on weapons owned and open carry of hand guns is legal, except at the "usual" places, i.e. state and federal buildings, schools and posted "No Carry" areas. A CCW is very easy to acquire for any legal gun owner as well. Unfortunately, in Las Vegas (Clark County) we have to "register" our hand guns. Clark County is the only county in Nevada that requires this "Nazi blue card" for hand gun ownership.

Just for the record, you DO NOT need a "Class 3" to own a select fire weapon in the US. You DO need to purchase $200 tax stamp through the ATF. The Class 3 is only for the ability to SELL weapons that have full auto capability. You can go through the happy dance to obtain the tax stamp for each weapon you wish to purchase FROM A CLASS 3 dealer.

Currently, most weapons offered for sale will run in the tens of thousands of dollars. So, if you have that kind of jack to spend, and are willing to withstand the ATF scrutiny and litmus test to obtain the stamp.....you can have one or more, all nice and legal.

Thanks for that explanation. I've been laboring under a misconception. As for the costs, I think I'll pass. I like to collect the combloc weapons as well as others but I don't really "need" to have a selective fire weapon.

The $200 tax you are required to pay for a full-auto (or other NFA items) was enacted with the intend to make it cost prohibitive. In 1936 a Thompson SMG only cost $200 making the tax rate 100% effectively. With the dramatic rise in prices of such weapons, the sales tax is more than $200 so the Federal tax is a minor inconvenience.

Do you think an administration that has the audacity and arrogance to "buzz" NYC with an airliner/F-16 escort at 1000' AGL, and putting thousands of citizens in a state of panic, is actually worried about the repercussions of ANYTHING they do?
In their minds, these arrogant a$$holes RULE this country, and you are nothing but their subjects.
