    generally available to civilians in the US. Automatic weapons were declared illegal in the 1930s. Collectors may obtain automatic weapons after a long, complex, and expensive process, but they are not available to the general public. You can't buy one at your local gun shop or Walmart.

      I appreciate your drawing the distinction.  I mean that if guns were restricted to firing one or two or three rounds before needing to be reloaded, these sorts of massacres simply couldn't occur.  Whatever nomenclature of restrictions on weapons leads to that result, I would gladly support.  

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.

      To convert semiautomatic weapons to automatic weapons readily available and while I believe these are illegal, enforcement at gun swap meets is lax as these event provide a means of people to contact those who supply them.
