    I think it is awesome and a privilege how Americans enforce their right to bear arms. Oh, how I envy you all! Americans definitely need to be allowed to legally register machine guns since it is protected by the 2nd Amendment, but I seriously doubt that this will be allowed by the Government and the Anti-Gun Groups since they are currently only allowed to be used by the military and thus are considered tools for war.

    This is incorrect. Citizens may own, and use, machine guns. Law enforcement agencies as well.

    Well, I do hope that Americans can register their machine guns. That would be awesome and tip the odds WAY in favor of civilians and their home defense. America Rocks!!!!

    I don't see it happening,due to the fact that somebody who paid around 12-15 thousand dollars for a pre 86 M16 and all of a sudden you can buy a new select fire for the same price as an AR15 won't be happy,and those people will actually want the petition defeated so they won't lose their investments appraised value

    Negative.
    They wont see it as a loss in their investment. They'll see it as an opportunity to acquire more for a much cheaper price.

    Cheer up and don't lose faith. I saw ALL of these comments when concealed carry was first being debated in the early 90's here in Arkansas. Bill(it ain't sex) Clinton was then Governor and the outlook was bleak. Jim Guy(I'm a criminal) Tucker got in and vowed to veto it when it came up and he did because allowing common folk do defend themselves from people like him was unthinkable. When Jim Guy got busted for being stupid,then LT.Governor Huckabee got in,became Governor and signed it into law.
    There were people here that never thought they'd see it.

    It may take awhile...
    but...it could happen.
