    After Vegas, and all the argument over gun laws, yet here we have a man pulled over with a huge cache of weapons, ammunition, and survival gear. Many of the rifles were AUTOMATIC or modified to automatic, and none of them had serial numbers or were registered. What was this guy planning?

    "(JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.) — Federal agents are trying to determine why a man pulled over for speeding in Tennessee was carrying a cache of weapons including two submachine guns and 900 rounds of ammunition.

    Deputies found Scott Edmisten, 43, of Johnson City, carrying a .357-caliber Magnum, a loaded .45-caliber semi-automatic, a .223-caliber fully automatic assault rifle, a .308-caliber fully automatic assault rifle, more than 900 rounds of ammunition, and survival equipment, Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal said."

    Fully automatic machine guns are illegal. Look how well all that gun control worked out

    Arsenal? Add a case of beer to that and you have a typical summer weekend at the river in Texas.

    As Taz pointed out it is illegal for him to own it and converting a semi-automatic weapon to fully automatic weapon is also illegal even if the conversion kits exist...

    So the question for me why is it no one is focusing on the conversion kits?

    Yeah. I think the 900 rounds of ammo is a bit of a red flag. Unless he is going hunting and is a really bad shot.

    I hope there is a valid reason for all of this. If not, the SOB deserves the book thrown at him.

    Pretty sure his biggest headache is going be possession of weapons with no serial numbers
