    Cool What if.....

    With the avid anti gun Kennedy on the way out I got to thinking What If...
    There had been no machine gun ban / freeze (no class III requirement)....
    There had been no Assignations hence no 1968 gun law...
    Where would be be today? How big of a threat would the anti gun crowd be? Think of it and all the things that happened that would not be....

    One thing you wouldn't see, are worn-out, marginal, full-auto weapons selling for $25k or more. There are some collectors out there who have a vested interest in the machine-gun ban. They'd lose a lot of bucks if that one were ever repealed.

    Ah-yes-----the big picture. On the other hand--every investment has it's risks, and rightfully so. Tis the balance of nature.

    Well, if there was no Bonnie & Clyde we would still be able to order a Chicago Typewriter (Thompson Sub Machine Gun) or a full auto Browning BAR by mail and have it delivered to the house.
