    I just emailed CNN. Seemed like an exercise in futility, but I had to do it.

    CNN didn't correct it becuase they don't know the difference between full and semi auto... despite countless explanations.

    If someone had a full auto for sale at a gun show, sure you could buy it--but you'd still have to go thru all the paperwork to take possession.

    Al Qaeda critiquing U.S. gun laws. Even CNN is smarter than that! What's next, Al Qaeda on Women's Lib, Al Qaeda on Religious Freedom, Al Qaeda on Human Rights, Al Qaeda on How to Decapitate a Defenseless Person ( a subject they actually do have some expertise in )? Where are the drones when you need one?

    Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a lecture from North Korea on how to get along with your neighbors!

    Yeah, Al Qaeda always buys their weapons at American gun shows. This is known as the Al Qaeda loophole, and it should be closed ASAP. Somebody tell Joe Biden.

    Oh....my.....dear.....God. The ignorance of some is simply outstanding. Sure, you could probably buy a full auto firearm at a gun show, but you would still have to submit the proper paperwork and qualify for its purchase.

    Individual requirements to purchase these weapons are:

    1. Be a US Citizen at least 21 years old
    2. Be of sane mind
    3. Not an abuser of drugs or alcohol
    4. Have never been convicted of a felony
    5. Pay a $200.00 Federal Transfer Tax on each weapon purchased. (This is a one-time tax, not a yearly tax)
    6. Fill out BATF Form 4 and submit to ATF. This involves getting a Signature of the "Chief Law Enforcement Officer" in your area signifying that he has no knowledge that you will use your weapon for anything other that lawful purposes
    7. Have your fingerprints/photographs taken and submitted to BATF with the above application.

    *** After approximately 90-120 days, during which time the FBI runs your prints to verify your identity, etc., the transfer will come back approved. Only after the transfer is approved can you take possession of your item.

    I'm pretty sure that Al Qaeda would not want to go through all this expense and paperwork, when they can just go to the nearest border town in Mexico or contact the local Chinese, Russian, Latin or Italian mafia to buy one immediately and much cheaper.

    Don't be fooled. They are fully aware of the difference between semi and fully auto. They are just going to promote the statements that fit their agenda. And they will edit out the ones that do not. ...Like when ABC edited out Michelle O's claim that "kids" in Chicago were recently killed by automatic weapons. "Kids" being gang members ...and she was wrong about the weapons.

    SURE...you can buy a full-auto, if you get the $200 stamp...just like a suppressor, in fact, I waited 8 months to get mine (suppressor approval).
    Perhaps I should have just skipped all that paper work and bought it at a gun show.

    Of course we can buy a fully automatic rifle at gun shows.

    Also RPG's, hand grenades, M1 Abrahams tanks, I even got dibs on a drone or two.

    CNN ceased to be a "news" agency years ago.
