Toy Gun Sold Can Easily be Converted to the Real Thing

Post by Redrose100 »

Felons, illegal immigrants and all others banned from buying a gun in the United States have a new alternative if they’re looking to get their hands on a firearm: Just buy a toy.

A FoxNews.com investigation reveals that a popular recreational pellet gun can be converted easily to a real semi-automatic weapon. And while the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is already aware of the issue, these “toys” -- new, top-of-the-line airsoft rifles -- continue to be sold throughout the country.

And I thought Airsoft was safe!

Hmmm. I'm taking this with a grain of salt.

I once saw a step by step guide on how to convert a Winchester 94 Lever Action to a machine gun.

Just because it can be done, doesn't mean it is easy , or even marginally functional.

In addition, I'd wager it is cheaper and easier to just buy a "hot" gun on the street than one of these high end Airsoft toys.

Repeal the 16th, enforce the 10th.
