Its Enough To Bring Tears To Your Eyes

Well, I just had to go see for myself. The closest I could get without being buzzed into the "inner sanctum" was about twenty feet, but sure enough, in a glass and wood case, mounted on the wall, is what appears to be a 1928 with the Lyman sight and cutts, with an L drum inserted, and XX, XXX mags in the display case.
This almost brough tears to my eyes. First, because it wasn't mine, and second, because full auto ownership isn't legal in Kansas for us ordinary folks (only authorized Law enforcement).
At least it has a good home and isn't being put to the torch. I need to see if I can pull a few strings with Jail Admin and get in to take some pictures. Given our current budget problems, maybe they are willing to sell it. . .

P.S. Sgt., I haven't heard anything about (Dillinger's) Thompson either.

Given that Kansas hasn't passed a concealed carry law yet, I doubt we are anywhere near legalizing full auto weapons.
Interestingly enough though, while it is illegal to own a short barreled shotgun under state law here, it appears to be legal to own a short barreled rifle. I went through the statutes several times and just couldn't find where it prohibited a barrel on a rifle of less than 16". Go figure.
