    That's why you never consent to a warrantless search for "traffic violations."

    U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said in an interview Tuesday said the pieces that modify the handguns appear to be Chinese-made, and that it’s something that worries law enforcement. He cited a recent case in Chicago in which a man carrying a package full of switches was arrested after trying to flee police, authorities said.

    He acknowledged that modifications can also be made to rifles, but noted that most homicides are carried out with handguns. He also said the pieces are not cost-prohibitive and it doesn’t take a firearms expert to install one of the pieces, leading to what he called an “alarming trend.”



    This guy sounds like a douchecanoe....

    Likely a Glock with the modified slide cover plate. But, I'm just guessing.

    ... Like the ones that were being sold on WISH.COM at one point. When I saw them, my first thought was WILL BE DELIVERED BY YOUR FRIENDLY, NEIGHBORHOOD BATFE AGENT!

    Worries the LE community??why all it takes is one bullet who cares if it’s FA

    Or I forgot about the choke hold the commies have on the constitution in regards to our rights.

    Oh well good night.

    I always wanted a machine pistol as described in the Doc Savage books. With real bullets instead of “mercy” bullets, though...

    I didn’t know these things existed. Against my better judgment, I Googled it. Probably got put on another list.

    This is a marketing tactic from the ammo companies to sell more ammo.;)

    The LE community that is worried obviously have never fired a full auto Glock. Ya, you're not hitting sh*t with that thing.

    We should heavily regulate ownership of full auto firearms! Oh.
    We should make it illegal to buy these parts! Oh.

    On deck:
    We should make it illegal to shoot people!
    We should make it illegal to [insert already illegal thing here]!

    Our Guru Jeff Cooper wrote....I was shot at once by a man with a machine pistol, as he attempted to reload after emptying his weapon, I killed him.

    Sometimes Mr. Cooper was just plain lucky. Any well schooled auto shooter knows to start low and to the side opposing the recoil, fire a burst letting the recoil sweep the rounds over the target, pretty effective.
