The Washington Post has the story about one of those guys who up till now was a legitimate gun owner, the kind who take some liberties with the law.
Of course some will say he can't be expected to know who's a convicted felon when he's trying to make a private sale to the man at a gun show. He's not a mind reader. And having those restricted weapons at home, although in violation of certain overly-restrictive laws, is not really criminal.
I'll bet a lot of lawful guys would like to get their hands on a real machine gun and a 61 mm mortar.
What's your opinion? Does owning one of these restricted weapons make one a criminal? Isn't it possible to be law abiding person but break some of the rules along the way? Isn't this what is meant by the gray area?
