Frothy Panties: TRW M-14 machine gun? The M2 is a machine gun, the M14 is a select fire, gas-operated rifle.
Enemabag Jones: Would someone who isn't LEO get away with this?
FlippityFlap: 1) Lubbock and it's nearby towns are NOT Central Texas. Try "West" Texas. 2) M-14's were originally select fire, but they proved to be very ineffective in full auto due to the recoil of the 7.62. Many were changed to semi-auto only, though I 'm sure some survived as select-fire in storage. If this guy sold one of those, he is farked very badly. Good. Military surplus belongs in storage, sold to Allies, or scrapped. Not in the hands of country bumpkin LEO's.
Enemabag Jones: Before I get corrected, these are vietnam era rifles that were originally full auto and later could have been remilled for semi-auto, but the ATF has weird rules on these remilled semi-auto rifles. Anybody who can explain more would be appreciated.http://www.ar15.com/mobile/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=1593026
EvilEgg: He wasn't a rising star, he worked in Rising Star./if "that's the joke" it sucked.
ginkor: Pressure is building for a lot of states to pass "Police De-Paramilitarization" laws. Basically to disband all SWAT teams below county level, limit local police departments to state approved equipment, and prohibit them from directly getting money or equipment from the federal government. Oddly enough, a lot of this is bipartisan.
