Someone needs to watch fewer movies...

"Now what you have here is a sawed-off, 12-gauge shotgun," he said, snapping the weapon's foldable stock into place. "A very good street sweeper. You can conceal this gun and take out a room full of people with one shot."  ---- Glynn County, GA Deputy Sheriff Michael Johnson

Now, I don't know about you, but if I were a law enforcement officer, I believe I'd find better sources for my statement to newspapers than
"movie" facts. Deputy Johnson apparently isn't aware that short-barreled shotguns and rifles were outlawed by the NFA only because of their ease of concealment, not because they are weapons of mass destruction. Don't think he's familiar with trench coats, either. And isn't there a Federal procedure to follow to transfer these things? After all, it was a sale, wasn't it? Isn't that the purpose of a "buy back"? And if the SBS, also known as "any other weapon", wasn't registered, didn't at least two people commit at least one Federal felony?

It gets better.

Sheriff Deputy Michael Johnson pulled one particularly curious firearm from the bag.

"This is a Reuger (sic) 9mm," he said, taking the ammunition clip that was with the gun out of the bag. "But this is the 75-round clip that came with it."

He snapped the clip into the body of the gun, completing what was already a sinister appearance.

"This gun had completely fresh, hollow-point rounds when it was brought in," he said. "So it hadn't gone very long without being used. It doesn't take too much work to make a weapon like this fully automatic."

OOOOOO! We have to watch out for those guns with a "sinister appearance" don't we!? And "doesn't take too much work to make a weapon like this fully automatic"? Puhlease. If the ATF could take any firearm and not "take too much work" to make it full auto, they would have done it and banned it. Period.

These jokers don't have a clue.
