Ain't it the truth....

"Gun Myth #1: You can buy automatic weapons at any gun shop. This is completely and utterly false. Automatic weapons are highly regulated, extremely expensive ($15,000+) and VERY difficult to acquire. They're also extremely rare and have NEVER been used in any school shooting in America. Just to acquire an automatic weapon, you must go through extensive background checks and fingerprinting. You must apply to the federal government (ATF) for permission, then wait six months or longer to be approved by the ATF."
