But Machine Guns Are Not Legal In Washington State
I found this article at the Seattle Times about a gun collector implicated as a material witness in the murder of a federal prosecutor. Near the bottom of the article is this
The gun collector was held for 23 days during which agents searched his Bellevue home. There they found hundreds of legal firearms, including several machine guns. Federal agents seized an M-14 assault rifle they allege was an unlicensed machine gun.What makes that especially interesting is that machine guns are not legal in Washington State, so how could he have several legal machine guns, which the statement above appears to imply? At least, if it is a real M-14, they got the "Assault Rifle" part right, and didn't refer to it as a nebulous "Assault Weapon."
