    depends on how it would affect future court rulings concerning the second amendment, if banning them can in any way become even the slightest of precedents used to go after other things then I am completely against banning them, if it can be proven that it will not be used in such a manner and that all gun control efforts will cease after they are banned then I will not object to it...now lets turn the table 180 degrees....if they are banned will you drop all future gun control arguments and fully support the right to bear arms by private citizens?

    Then we should have the right to own them as well.

    The framers saw the personal right to bear arms as a potential check against tyranny.

    I'm speaking to the House Amendment 777 to H.R. 4332, otherwise known as the hughes amendment. This is an amendment to make it unlawful for any person to transfer or possess a machinegun except in the case of a machinegun that was lawfully possessed before the date of enactment.

    I'd appreciate it if you stopped trying to derail the discussion by knit picking these details and stick to the subject at hand

    Your right you cannot give in at all because liberals will not rest until the 2nd amendment is gone

    Still not a ban.

    All that did was make it illegal to buy or transfer an automatic weapon made after 1986

    I own guns and support the second amendment. But I don't think anybody should make such a crass claim to drop all future agruments about control measures. If we can make our world safer and find a way our law enforcement can help in those efforts then of course i'd support it. I also wouldn't support measures that I think are unnecessary or ineffective.

    The issue is that gun rights people simply do not trust gun control people when they say "we just want to limit or ban x".

    By passing national reciprocity at the same time or having NYC in a show of good faith fix its handgun law they would be showing that they don't want to just ban everything eventually.
