    I realize I phrased that rather poorly in retrospect and I apologize.

    Again this is basically a case of guilt by association. I have heard people who are actively courted and supported by the NRA make comments to the effect of "When you see someone with an obama sticker on the road, pull them over and ask hows that hopey changey thing working for ya?" Followed by a graphic of sniper scopes over the images of liberals and democrats with the general idea of "We need to take aim at these people to get them out of office." Also the "We need to issue permits to hunt liberals to thin out the heard." Then after these and other acts are poorly defended as "I was just kidding/ using satire" these people are asked to speak at the biggest gathering of the NRA all year and given money in the form of campaign contributions and speaking fees. Don't get me started on how Nugent as a board member acts. I'm sorry but I can't support that and I do not see that kind of behavior from the ACLU. They may defend nazis but they probably don't give them donations and probably don't endorse the nazi party simply because they both want free speech. But let it be known that I appreciate what the NRA does as far as my gun rights. They free up the ACLU to fight for every other right we have.

    Bull crap. When has it happened, EVER? Total lie spread for years and now it passes as truth.

    ...

    Its possible in a highly advanced machine shop with highly advanced skills, but possible is not likely.
    are you really saying it is not possible or requires a machine shop with highly advanced skills to turn a semi into an auto?? I hope you are not serious.

    When i was in the army we learnt how to convert our issued SLR L1A1 to full auto using a match stuck in the trigger mechanism... although i never really did it (except to try it out) since i also agree that i am far more dangerous with a semi-auto than full auto.

    You can find all sorts of full auto conversion stuff with a quick search of youtube, this is my favorite :qleft7:

    Do you realize that in the above you say you are listening to people and you see a graphic of a sniper scope (reticle) over the images of liberals and democrats.

    I understand your statements for not supporting the NRA. Are you a dues paid member of any 2nd amendment protecting organization?

    You go ahead and try that.

    See how well it works for you.

    There's a lot more to it than you think. Modifications to the bolt and frame to make room for your new parts for instance...

    I'm also surprised that you didn't come across a DIAS in your "search". Kind of makes me think you don't know what you're talking about...

    Do you realize you are being intentionally obtuse? I'm sorry that I did not clarify that these events did not happen in direct chronological succession from each other but actually happened over a matter of days/weeks/months. Also that they were boradcast over TV which has both audio and visual components so that one can actually HEAR words spoken and then at the same time SEE things displayed on the screen.

    I sincerely doubt that.

    I plan on becoming a lifetime member of my local gun range but beyond that no. Though if you can find a non partisan lobby for 2nd amendment rights I'll be happy to look into it.

    You were joking? Shiese.

    It is my humor that failed sir.

    The mechanical principles are sound, but the video really oversimplifies it.

    A lot of the information out there about FA "conversions" is BS. Most of it just produces a weapon that "slam fires" as soon as the bolt closes home. (discharges rounds until the clip is empty.) Despite that not really being a functioning "FA", and basically just a dangerous malfunctioning piece of crap, you can still earn a lengthy vacation to club fed for messing up a gun like that.
