Machine Guns-- Private & Corporate Ownership

It is a common misconception that machine guns cannot be owned by law-abiding citizens. This comes from the creation of a variety of confusing laws that have made purchasing a full-auto gun more difficult than purchasing a "normal" gun. But, if you can comply with the law, you may qualify to own a machine gun.

First a brief history: In May of 1986, certain laws went into effect that made it illegal for 'civilians' to own fully automatic firearms that were manufactured AFTER THAT DATE. Many fully automatic weapons manufactured, registered and tax paid BEFORE MAY, 1986, MAY BE OWNED BY AND SOLD TO INDIVIDUALS. The full-auto guns that may be owned by individuals are called 'transferable'. Some states DO NOT allow machine gun ownership at all, no matter when the gun was made, but many states do.

To purchase a transferable machine gun, you must meet certain requirements (generally the same as when you purchase another gun, but with additional scrutiny), fill out special paperwork (called a 'form 4'), and pay a $200, one-time, transfer tax. Every time a machine gun is transferred, the $200 tax must be paid-- usually by the purchaser. The steps to take to purchase a transferable machine gun are:
  1. Find a dealer locally who can assist you in all phases of the transfer. This should go beyond helping you fill out the paperwork: they should help you locate the gun if it isn't in stock and allow you to shoot the gun while your paperwork is being processed by the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms). It will usually take 4-6 weeks for the dealer to get the gun from another dealer if they don't already have it in stock (due to BATF paperwork delays).
  2. Get your fingerprints (either by a police dept. or by a qualified fingerprinter, two imprints are needed) and two passport sized pictures taken. These will be used to perform a comprehensive criminal background check on you.
  3. Have your local dealer help you fill out an "Application for Tax Paid Transfer And Registration Of Firearm" for, known as a "form 4".
  4. You must have the signature of the Chief Law Enforcement (CLEO) officer that has jurisdiction over the municipality in which you live on the form 4. This could be the City Chief or the County Sheriff, for example. This is usually not a problem-- in machine gun friendly states. The form 4, CLEO signature, 2 fingerprint cards, 2 pictures, and a $200 check (your one-time transfer tax) must all be mailed to the BATF and an approved tax stamp returned before you may take possession of the gun. This may take anywhere from 2 to 5 months.
Although it may seem complicated, we are happy to help you through every step in the process. We have transferable guns in stock, and if we don't have it, we can tap into a network of dealers in other states to find it for you. Let us help you get the full-auto gun that you've always wanted-- they are worth it! We are not lawyers, and do not represent ourselves to offer legal advice. We can point you in the direction of counsel upon request.

How about Suppressors or Short-Barreled Shotguns? Yes you probably can! (Most of the same restrictions apply)

Oblivion for Firearm Freedom?

by Wayne LaPierre, Townhall.com

Americans don’t need the NRA to tell them that the Barack Obama-Joe Biden administration could spell oblivion for their freedoms: Americans are telling us!

Even during the poorest holiday spending season in almost 40 years, with consumer confidence in a freefall, Americans bought guns like they were going out of style—or going to be banned.

NRA Official Rips Weapons-Ban Bid

Calls linkage to Mexican gangs 'phony'

by Kara Rowland, The Washington Times

A top National Rifle Association official said the Obama administration is using the increasingly violent drug cartels in Mexico as an excuse to push for reinstating the ban on assault weapons.

"They're trying to piggyback this whole phony issue on the back of the tragedy in Mexico," said Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the gun-rights group, on CBS' "Face the Nation" program Sunday.

EDITORIAL: Democracy in Action

by The Washington Times

The degree to which the Obama administration is responsible for sagging employment might be debatable, but the President and his team definitely deserve credit for the boom in job growth at political action committees. As the government expands in every direction and stimulus spending is dispensed like candy, an increasing number of lobbyists are being drawn to Washington to try to get a piece of the pie.

…But individuals still have influence when they group together with other like-minded citizens. The National Rifle Association's influence on Capitol Hill is based on its membership of 4 million Americans who have banded together to defend the Second Amendment. There is power in numbers, and sometimes the numbers and the power are measured in dollars. With appropriate reporting, PACs help bring political attention to important issues. This process might not always be pretty, but it is democracy in action.

Why Congress Should Not Bring Back the Federal ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban

The Hill’s Congress Blog

Congress allowed the ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms to expire in 2004 for two main reasons: the ban was an infringement on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans and it failed to live up to supporters’ promises.

Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that the right of individuals to possess firearms is protected by the Second Amendment. There is no question that the firearms affected by the now-expired ban have been legally and widely owned for decades. These guns aren’t machine guns; despite anti-gun groups’ efforts to confuse the public, the guns fire just one shot for each pull of the trigger, using technology that’s more than a century old.

Letter: Be Thankful NRA Exists to Protect Our Rights

The Cape Cod Times (MA)

Your April 9 editorial "Had enough?" contained important factual errors and omissions.

The National Rifle Association does not, as you claim, "thwart every effort at keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people." In fact, immediately after the Virginia Tech massacre, the NRA threw its full support behind H.R. 2640, the "NICS Improvement Amendments Act," which will further strengthen laws that keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

JOHN LOTT: ABC’s Shameful ‘20/20′ Experiment

by John R. Lott, Jr., Fox News / Fox Forum

Gun control advocates look desperate. Last Friday night, on April 10, ABC aired a heavily promoted, hour long “20/20″ special called, “If I Only Had a Gun.” It is ABC’s equivalent of NBC’s infamous exploding gas tanks in General Motors pickups where NBC rigged the truck to explode. With legislation in Texas and Missouri advancing to eliminate gun-free zones at universities, perhaps this response isn’t surprising.

The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S.

While 90 percent of the guns traced to the U.S. actually originated in the United States, the percent traced to the U.S. is only about 17 percent of the total number of guns reaching Mexico.

By William La Jeunesse and Maxim Lott, FOXNews.com

EXCLUSIVE: You've heard this shocking "fact" before -- on TV and radio, in newspapers, on the Internet and from the highest politicians in the land: 90 percent of the weapons used to commit crimes in Mexico come from the United States.

-- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said it to reporters on a flight to Mexico City.

-- CBS newsman Bob Schieffer referred to it while interviewing President Obama.

-- California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said at a Senate hearing: "It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico and used to shoot judges, police officers and mayors ... come from the United States."

…There's just one problem with the 90 percent "statistic" and it's a big one:

It's just not true.

You Might Be a "Radicalized Right-Wing Extremist" If…

by Michelle Malkin, Townhall.com

What and who exactly are President Obama's homeland security officials afraid of these days? If you are a member of an active conservative group that opposes abortion, favors strict immigration enforcement, lobbies to protect Second Amendment rights, protests big government, advocates federalism or represents veterans who believe in any of the above, the answer is: You.

Obama Administration Targets Conservatives and War Vets

By Jim Kouri, Examiner.com

The Obama administration's new Secretary of Homeland Security recently ordered immigration agents to stop their workplace searches for illegal aliens, while at the same time denigrating U.S. war veterans and conservative or right-wing groups.

In a warning sent out nationally to local police and law enforcement executives, the Department of Homeland Security is cautioning local police agencies about the alleged rise in “right-wing extremist activity.”

New Gun Law Aimed at Asserting Sovereignty

By Kahrin Deines, Associated Press

Gov. Brian Schweitzer has signed into law a bill that aims to exempt Montana-made guns from federal regulation, adding firepower to a battery of legislative efforts to assert states’ rights across the nation. “It’s a gun bill, but it’s another way of demonstrating the sovereignty of the state of Montana,” Democrat Schweitzer said.
