Not something I might do, but apparently legal in Arizona........

Paul Helmke made the statement that the alleged assault weapon was loaded..........How does he know?  Did he remove the magazine from the rifle and find live ammo?  Did he check the chamber of the rifle and confirm a round in the chamber?

Of course he didn't.......he's just spewing anti-gun venom at the media.

Let's clear up one thing folks........semi-auto weapons are not considered assault weapons(only in the media).......only full-auto weapons are true assault weapons......To legally own a full-auto weapon, one must submit a mound of paperwork to local law-enforcement officials, get approved, pay a $200 tax...then purchase weapon...from a class III dealer(good luck finding one)which will range in cost from $3000.00 up to $10,000.00, depending on the particular weapon.

Background checks for these weapons are thorough...to the extent that most will not be approved....You'd better have some deep pockets and have a lifetime of success, with a lot to lose to get said approval....

Illegal conversion to full-auto will get you 10yrs. and a $10,000 fine if caught......not worth the risk.
