Can I use the Federal Firearm License Curio statutes to buy new fully automatic weapons?
under the curio and relic portions of the licensing law the weapon must draw together one of three criteria, 1. by manufactured 50 years ago 2. are certified by the curator of a museum 3. or and this is the kicker they are novel, rare, or bizarre, or because they have association near some figure, period, or event. Can I use this third portion to associate new guns with films in order to purchase them? thankfulness for considering this possible loophole
No sorry that doesn't classify as a loophole that allows you to buy new full autos. You either have to own a Class 3 FFL for the conducting of business or be purchasing for your law enforcement agency or the military. You would have to convince the ATF that some new full auto fell beneath that category, but so far nobody has.
No. As a matter of fact, if you tried the ATF would probably arrest you. The with the sole purpose way you can buy NEW automatic weapons is if you're a class 3 dealer, and that's like mad of paperwork for little profit.
