On this day, 15 years ago.                Leonid Rashal (very well known doctor) in Beslan, Sept 1st/2nd.      Ruslan Aushe

From David M. Fortier   According to initial reports the gunman drove to the store across from the church and exited his vehicle. He was dressed in all black, with face mask and wearing a ba

Well, we know one thing, if this guy had even thought about voting for Trump it would be the only goddamn thing on the news.

PKM.....Where the hell would you get such a thing and for what possible reason?  Do bears launch human ursine wave attacks in the US these days?

 

EDIT - Jesus it's getting worse.....I'm seeing reports of 50+ dead & 500+ wounded!  Maybe it was a PKM after all?  Truly, truly horrified.

PKMs are on the NFA registry... But my guess is this guy didn't get whatever he used legally.

There was also a stabbing attack in France recently, which ISIS has (somewhat more plausibly) also taken credit for.  There was also a recent attack in Canada.

 

That said, even though ISIS probably had nothing to do with the Vegas attack, it can't be ruled out entirely.  A number of attacks which appeared to be individual nutters snapping were actually choreographed by ISIS.

 

The US news media has, for political reasons, insisted that all such attacks are the actions of individuals.  The US news media is not very bright.

Acquiring transferable NFA machineguns it very expensive and takes a considerable amount of time. Last I checked, pre-86 M-16s go for about $15,000, and the approval process is still sitting around 11-13 months. This process involves a background check done by the FBI. The cheapest rifle caliber full auto you can get is still sitting north of $5,000, and that is for obscure things like FNCs.

 

A proper belt fed will start around $30,000 and go up from there. Even semi auto belt fed rifles (which are more of a bitch to convert to full auto that say an AK or AR still run in the mid four digits and up.
