first off...NJ does not allow fully automatic anything! Unless of course if you have an unrestricted CCW like Feinstein or other politicians. Semi Automatic anything can only shoot as fast as you pull the trigger and for the same reason someone woudl buy a $1,000,000 bugatti to go 240mph and the same reason ppl drink/do drugs and drive.

Rosemary - I am with you. You are not alone. I am chilled to the bone by the nasty attack on you and by the response that called for people with autism to be "locked up". Scary stuff.

Not quite as scary as a mentally deficient person with a gun, knife, bat or car to kill and maim innocent people. We need to lock up these crazies. Call them autistic, nuts, sociopaths just lock them up.

Any revolver shoots 6 rounds (multiple) just as quickly as a semi-auto handgun or an assault weapon. I guess you are advocating that we all use single shot muzzleloaders huh JAckson.
