Apparently My disdain for the media was not clear enough. Let me make it clearer.
"..bubble headed bleach blonde comes on at five, she can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye..." is not quite accurate enough.
Also the point I was originally making was not that it is impossible to aquire illegal weapons, or even fully auto weapons, which, if you wish to jump through the hoops, CAN be aquired legally.
I was simply jumping on a statement that I see way to often, and trying to clarify a percieved misconception. How many people that believe the media, politicans, etc. would have know the difference between automatic, I.E. ILLEGAL, and semi-automatic, ie a design that was begun with the Mauser in 189? and is not yet illegal. Especially in Florida with its relatively recent and ground breaking CC laws. Granted the gattlin gun was developed earlier, but they are a little cumbersome.
Sorry, gues that wasn' to clear. If you figure out what I meant, good job.
