    Is there any state where one could legally own a fully automatic weapon? How about any states where one could own a weapon such as the RPK?

    I believe that 31 states allow the ownership of full Auto weapons. Kentucky is one of them

    You can own full autos in most states I imagine. It's a federal thing..not state. You have to apply nad purchase a class III tax stamp for full auto and things like suppressors.

    As for a full auto RPK that I do not know specifically. I see them selling but have not5 looked to see if they where full auto or not. I imagine not though being the way the laws are written.

    Look up Knob Creek machine gun shoot. And you can go to the ATF site and read the rules about owning a full auto. All the full auto's at Knob Creek are privately owned

    Oh, everything I do goes through a firewall. It makes it hard to search for some things. It's much easier if people just tell me where to find it so I can find a way around the firewall to look at it.

    Jesus Ploofy,
    What happen? Did you already reverse your former belief that Nobody should be able to own anything that can kill 5 people in one second??

    That was sarcasm. I don't really believe in any limits.

    Fully automatic weapons are known as Class III National Firearms Act weapons- along with short barreled shotguns, short barreled rifles, suppressors, and "Any Other Weapons" (things like cane guns). The majority of states do not prohibit, but may, like the Commonwealth of Virginia, require that you register full autos with the state.

    ONLY those full auto weapons that were already registered with the Federal BATFE by May 1986 may be transferred to a private citizen. The transfer is done thru a FFL holder that has a class III endorsement. You must apply to the BATFE for the transfer, have permission of your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer, submit a fingerprint card, and a $200 transfer tax ($5 for AOWs). NEW full autos are transferrable only to a dealer, a law enforcement agency, or the military.

    Due to the "no new full auto" law, the price of full autos has gone thru the ceiling- an M16 rifle is about $15,000. To the best of my knowledge, ONE crime has been committed with a licensed full auto. Police Officer that murdered wife.

    Really? I thought they stopped making M16s full auto after like the 80's. I've only seen one full auto one, and thats carried by the local conservation officer.

    Solid proof that it is best that only local, state, and federal governments have access to full autos. :rolleyes:

    Gee, and here all this time I thought it was an act of Treason
    I guess that is why Cartman hates hippies so much.
