Myth 7 – Machineguns or fully automatic firearms are illegal

Nope.  They are covered under the National Firearms Act (NFA).  Suppressors (or incorrectly “Silencers”), machineguns, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, destructive devices, etc. are all legal to own on a federal level as long as you pay for a special tax stamp and jump through a few hoops.  Over half the states in the nation have no additional requirements.  Some states require registration.  Some states add restrictions that make these items very difficult to obtain.
