10 legal weapons you can use to defend yourselves

The name Minigun actually originally related to a particular gun model made by General Electric, but it has gone on to become a more generalized term to describe all rifle-caliber Gatling-type guns that are externally powered, and indeed various other similarly configured guns. These ferocious cannons feature multiple, revolving barrels and high rates of fire – in the case of the M134 Minigun, up to 6,000 rounds a minute. Astonishingly, such large, deadly weapons are legal to own in the U.S. owing to a law passed in 1986 that permitted ownership of any fully automatic weapon built prior to that year. That said, the process of obtaining one may prove difficult and expensive. Relatively few miniguns make it onto market, and even then one is likely to set prospective buyers back roughly $400,000. Then there’s the fact that firing the weapon costs approximately $60 a second thanks to the price of the ammunition. [All Ten]

One second, then,  will theoretically take out 100 of them ... cheap. In my mind's eye I see hundreds of political aides rushing to tell their Democrat patrons/patronnes about this.  The actual noise you might hear is Chuck Schumer's head exploding.  So, that one's free.

Yeah, but in New York you're limited to a seven round magazine.
That's a 0.07 second burst, then reload. Schumer is gloating.

^ Loophole: a belt is not a magazine.
At least when they come to take it away, you can make 'em say "Pretty please?".

Aw shucks, Doug; Schumer et al will declare an ammo box full of linked ammo a 'magazine', or a basement or closet or locked room where you store ammo a 'magazine.
Schumer never quits.
