I hear ya'....
I am not sure the law will be shot down anytime soon. It has been 21 years and I see no attempts being tried.
The people can still own a MG.. some are just more expensive than others. I think it comes down to the number of people that want one and are willing to complain long and hard enough to be heard.
We know the people want their guns... but who really needs a MG since it costs big bucks to shoot full auto anyway. I think it is going to be reserved for the serious collectors only.
But any attempts to repeal the 1986 law... will fail for this reason alone....
The number of crimes involving a MG!! There are so few you can probably count it on one hand. Why? because they are too expensive for criminals to purchase legally. They are so expensive that their owners lock them up to protect their investment.
I submit that any crime involving MG was likely done by the owner or were stolen from LE vehicles.
With MG crime stats that low... it proves that the law is a success to prevent them from being used in crimes.
So you better buy now!!
