Actually, I've been wondering, even if people in the US are somehow deluded into thinking you need guns for self-defense, how is it that minors can buy guns before they're even allowed to drink, and on what planet could an automatic weapon be construed as "defensive"? Ever hear of a handgun? I disagree that people even need that for self-defense, but you would have a much easier time making a case for having that than a SMG.

Oh wait, no there aren't. It's only in the great USA. What a coincidence.

Way to discreetly try and siphon more money from the public there US govt. So classy.
