    Postak No right to bear unregistered machine guns, federal court says

    A former commander in the Tennessee State Guard has lost an appeal to overturn his conviction for trying to provide his soldiers with homemade machine guns for possible use in defending the state.On Wednesday, a federal appeals court in Cincinnati threw the case out of court. ‚Whatever the individual right to keep and bear arms might entail, it does not authorize an unlicensed individual to possess unregistered machine guns for personal use,‚ said the three-judge panel of the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals.

    If only they would let us register new ones.... I think we should start a campaign telling people, "hey, I'm trying to pay a tax.... and the government won't let me!"

    It's about people control, politicians are afraid of an armed population and that is why they go into a tizzy about assault weapons which by their definition includes any semi-auto with more than 10 rounds in a magazine.

    They might want to take another read of that second amendment.

    +1 Chopper, it's about power and control.
