    Thumbs down You Can't Fix Stupid

    Needing a full auto, I'm guessing he is a member of the Lincoln County Mafia or something? You know, for "protection". What part of not having a FFL to own a full auto Bushmaster did this guy not understand?

    HUNTINGTON,WV -- A Lincoln County WV man pleaded guilty on Monday before U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers to possessing a machine gun.

    Charles Harrison Neace, 30, of Ranger, W.Va., said he possessed a Bushmaster, .223 caliber, fully automatic rifle in May 2008. Neace also said he converted the rifle so that it was capable of firing more than one shot without manual reloading by a single function of the trigger.

    Neace is scheduled to be sentenced on July 6. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the West Virginia State Police conducted the investigation

    Good grief that's stupid. You can legally own a machine gun easily enough. Why on earth would this guy take that chance with those kinds of consequences?

    Oh wow. He has a machine gun. This must be big news.

    Sort of reminds me of growing up in Michigan and reading ridiculous stories in the news that were all "Weapons Cache Found!" and they'd go on to say that "thousands" of round of ammo were found and "dozens of guns" were 'uncovered'. We often wondered what exactly defined a 'cache' of weapons, since we never bought ammo in lots of less than 10,000. Jeeez.

    So the guy converted something to full auto...geeez...when I grew up that was sort of protocol. Yup. It's illegal. So was everything else we did in those days. Legal, schmegal. Give me a break. Folks looking for Big News and a big bust. It sure would be nice if these guys would go out and look for an actual problem. But no. That would be too much risk.

    I'd like to know when the last time a 'machine gun' was the cause of an actual problem above and beyond that caused by an idiot with a revolver or a pump shotgun. Let's go, I'm waiting.

    Why do perfectly normal, non-crinimal individuals carry firearms without getting the 'easily acquired' permit?
