Like I said, you have to have a Federal Firearms License, which is very hard to get, to legally purchase and own a full-auto weapon. Machine guns are not commonly available to the public.
I stand corrected.
However, seeing as they no longer have full auto capability they should not be called "Assault Rifles" any longer as they do not fit the definition.
I believe what Pastrami was pointing out was the desire some civilians have for actual Assault Rifles to be available to the public, which I believe I debated against in the Gun Control thread in Kavars a long time ago.
However, thank you for pointing out the variants that are available. Had forgotten about them.
