I try to inform the ignorant.
I don't give a s#!t about the fool!
It is very hard to flush an illegal SMG down the toilet when the BATFE is pounding on the door!
Just my $.02 worth.

1.) Take care of yourself first.
2.)caveat emptor-let the buyer beware. It is a warning as old as the ages. You are responsible, as the buyer, to do due diligence, before making a purchase.
3.) If you ignored rules one and two, prepare for a long stay at Club Fed.
4.) If you are willing to stick your neck out for the sake of the SMG/MG community, or an individual, be sure to, 'first do no harm'.
P.S. True Story: A couple of nights ago a 63 year old local gentleman decided to go snowmobiling alone. He then plunged into a pond, even though it was about 10 degrees F outside. He was an experienced snowmobiler. It turned out to be a recovery mission. So, now, should we outlaw snowmobiles or ponds, because some individuals are irresponsible?

Trolling here and trying to start a fire, then sitting back and tossing gas on once in awhile gives me a good idea as to the type of person we're dealing with. You certainly have a right to your opinion, but when you start namecalling and spewing forth high levels of vile venom toward good folks who just might not disagree with your selfish kid opinions, you have crossed the line from denizen to troll.
And don't you dare tell me to "get a life" . You know absolutely NOTHING about me, except that I feel a certain responsibility as a gun owner and chose to share that with you and others here. Your response is that of a spoiled little boy.....totally celf-centered and very selfishly stated.
We don't get down on folks for their hobbies, we all try and enjoy ours responsibly and get along on these wonderful boards that Frank and Nick have generously provided for our use, and mediated by guys like Chris, who tries to keep it clean. People need to give a little bit back to some of the things they love to ensure they will be around for others to enjoy.
If you pass me on the freeway (and that wouldn't be likely the way I drive!!), its not likely I'd turn you in. Nor am I one who jams the left lane playing traffic cop. If you want to speed, that's your business, as long as you can do it without endangering my driving priveleges. When I see someone selling illegal items that could have an impact on one of my hobbies, you can bet that I will take an active interest in setting things right. I have no desire to play Lawman here, but I feel someone has to....
Maybe some here see this as none of their business, but I don't see them reacting to simple logic like I see you doing......flaming away as you are.
I've been hanging around these boards for years and most folks who act like you aren't welcome and don't usually stick around long.
Do us all a favor and be gone. I don't welcome your type and I don't believe other good members of these boards do either.

I wholeheartedly agree with John and others on this issue. IMHO, you've taken careful aim and peed all over your shoes on this one, son. I, like so many others here, want to help keep this an informative, intelligent, and well thought out forum that keeps the history of our hobby alive and well, which includes exercising it within the limits of the law and not beyond!
What would "The Old Man" (General John T. Thompson) say if he could read some of the flaming here, the forum which is dedicated to his invention? He had enough heartbreak in the 1920's regarding the action that went on 25 miles away from my house in Chicagoland, plus many more in his lifetime.
Responsibility is just what it reads: A responsibility. I won't beat that one to a pulp; it's been explained quite eloquently here by the forum members. Thanks, guys.
So, best to move on and out, ltcboy. I've fired many (people with) attitudes like yours. No regrets on my part.

Lionheart-- As far as my head in my ass-- I would be thrilled if I could perform such a feat! I didnt realize that you were so emotional. I would swear you are a female. As far as your comment on the PPSH, I really dont know what your talking about or what point your trying to make. SO to respond to your little assholish comments, realizing that your so brave sitting on your computer, sitting there typing away in your boxers, pulling your pud, typing out insults from within the privacy the internet allows you to hide behind. But all I can say to you is... say it to me personally in my face. If you can afford a Thompson, you have money to afford a plane ticket to Chicago. Fly out and I meet you at the airport and personally greet you so I can hear you tell me how far I have my head in my ass. We will then see how strong your opinions are then.
John-- Get a life.
Ron Mills-- I agree with you 100% about perserving this hobby within the law. I dont dispute that and I hope you beleive this. However, what somebody is selling on an auction, let alone from a foreign country, is your business only if you bid on it. It is nobodys business but the buyer and the seller. If the buyer is breaking the law----its his ass---not mine, not yours, not Lionhearts, not Johns or anybody elses on this forum. Its the buyers ass. All I can say to you guys who want to flame me is, who the fuq died and left you in command? Nobody, and I will stick to my guns on this. The analogy about somebody breaking into my house and stealing my weapons is stupid and dumb. You cannot compare it. That is a crime committed against another person. When the idiot who buys the TSMG illegally and gets it in his hands, he is not committing a crime against another person. Yes he is still committing a crime be having an illegal machine gun, but the only person that will suffer is him --if he gets caught.
By the way Ron-- as far as firing me-- you wouldnt be able to afford me in the first place.
So to all you women who hate me now and want to flame and throw out insults-- thats fine. Whether you like it or not, or disagree with my opinion, you still are budding you nose in somebody elses business because your afraid that whomever gets their hands on an illegal machine gun is gonna jeapordize your hobby and your ownership. As I said before-get a life and get real. There have been many people arrested for illicit use of automatic weapons in the past. There will be more in the future. You will still be able to own your Thompson. DO you really think in sound mind, as an American, that the Feds will outlaw legal ownership of automatic weapons and come to your house to get them? You can think it will happen all day long and if you do, your heads in the clouds. On a local level yes, federal never. As far as policing what people are buying on the internet let Ebay, Gunbroker, Auction Arms, and other authorities worry about it. Thats what they get paid for. You dont.

As far as you making your accusations and comments about me owning an illegal PPSH because you saw a box next to a safe--you can blow it out your ass. Ever hear of people buying parts kits Einstien? The box came with a parts kit that I bought last year at a gunshow dipsh it. So take your wannabe Dick Tracy mentality and stick it . Who's got their head in their ass now Mr. Knowitall?
