I wish they hadn't illegalized the .50 cal in california. But they found a way around it, they came out with .470 calibre high-powered rifle, basically a .50 with .03 grams of gunpowder less...Mwahaha! Fantastic.

Gun control laws only work on law abiding citizens. I believe H&K remade one of their rifles to come with 10-round magazines to get past the Clinton gun ban on Hicap magazines. Of course, the gun works with HK 30 rounders too.

People will always find ways around gun control laws, it's just a waste of time to try and clamp down on guns.

Indeed, like the Automatic Weapons ban, you can go to any local gun show, and buy all the parts to assemble an automatic rifle of any style, and even the parts to buy weapons not on shelves.

Granted most weapons just need a firing pin and spring replacement to make them automatic.

If they become illegal, just go to a gun show and buy all the individual pieces to build one on your own. The manuals for doing so won't be illegal, and neither will the parts, just the gun itself. So just don't get trunk searched when going to the middle of nowhere to shoot, or I suppose you can go to a gun range and say it was "previously purchased before the ban was implemented"

That sounds like how you get around owning a vehicle from another country in the U.S. that you're not supposed to. You have it shipped in pieces, put it together, then register it as a kit car.

I just noticed on that rocket propelled chainsaw drawing it says the chainsaws motor is 40 horsepower which is way off. Garden tractors don't even have 40hp gas engines. I think they meant more like 4hp tops. I realize its just a fantasy weapon but its all in the details.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a 40hp chainsaw be amazingly difficult to control?

More like impossible. Heres the typical size of a vehicle that uses a 40hp engine.

Hmmm... Could be interesting. Let's try it! Someone find a chainsaw and tweak it to 40hp and see what happens! (I recommend you stand away from it when you turn it on and only load it with a little fuel)
