Regardless of what nonsense the NRA has published or stated, this is a requirement. Nobody uses a machine gun to hunt animals or protect themselves from an intrusion. This is common sense. We need to get this gun issue under control. Most people that support guns just want the ability to have the semi automatic weapons even though they never plan on using them. Nobody is trying to rid the world of guns or hunting sports because there’s nothing wrong with that, but there is a problem when people are accessing machine guns just to keep at their house until they snap and kill people in public or even private setting. Feel free to hunt every animal that’s available to you with a basic or even upgraded rifle, but to say that machine guns or semi automatic weapons of that caliber should be accessible to every American is ignorant and has placed us in the situation that we are in now.
