    Anniversary of the 86 Machingun ban.

    I can't beleive no one has posted anything about today being the anniversary of the 86 machinegun ban. What would things be like if it had never passed. What kind of full autos would have been designed? Look what has happened in the suppressor market because of the civilian market.

    I'm of mixed emotions on this issue. That crook, Rangel, shoved it down our throats knowing how difficult it would be to undo the damage. And he was right. I prefer not to honor such disgrace.

    How much money would a lobbyist need to give a politician in order to secure future generations of Americans the freedom of owning new machine guns once again? What is your educated guess on the figure and which politician?

    It's not going to be so much as a lobbyist as it would be a combination of lobbyist and lawyer(s). It would need to be an offensive mounted in a manner similar to Heller and then combined with convincing a Congress that is mostly clueless that machine guns are even legal! I would not even contemplate starting this mess without $6 million(ish) in the bank.

    $6 million is not very much money to pay for layers and buy the right polititions and judges.

    If I ever come across that sum of money in my lifetime I will donate it all towards that end. Maybe something can be started on this board? I will donate $ every year.

    Just finished reading a book unrelated to MG's however very relevant in my opinion to the present state of America and the West Civilization The West and the Rest by Niall Ferguson.

    I do appreciate the sentiment. With that said, we have trouble getting folks to just renew their membership!

    We could try to contact the various machinegun companies to fund such a lawsuit and with proper planning, could succeed in removing the ban.

    There's also facebook page designed directly for removing the Hughes Amendment:https://www.facebook.com/RepealHughes

    Please articulate why it would be in the interests of machine gun manufacturers to do this and how they would realize a profit from such activity. And I am going to exclude any manufacturers based in Europe since the EU pretty much bans civilian ownership of these weapons and force them to play along (eg.: HK, etc.). And exactly how much of a war chest has the Facebook page generated?

    Again, lot's of individuals would like to see Hughes repealed or overturned. Those same individuals generally look to others to fund the process.
