This homemade MAC 10 Submachine gun clone was turned in at the recent St. Louis buyback. Of course, you cant buy back firearms that you never owned. Buyback is an Orwellian propaganda term used to designate events were people are incentivized to turn weapons into police . . .
At the St. Louis event just before Christmas, the police took in 839 assorted firearms. From the St. Louis Police Twitter feed:
A special thank you to our Commissioned and Civilian Personnel, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and the St.Louis Police Foundation in removing the following Firearms from the streets (preliminary #s) 303 Handguns, 533 Long Guns and 6 Assault Rifles.
As is usually the case most of the guns were ordinary hunting rifles and shotguns, which are almost never used in crimes.
What caught the eye, though, was the homemade submachine gun. Homemade submachine guns are commonly found only where there are extremely restrictive gun controls in place. They are often seen in Brazil, Israel, Australia, and the Philippines. A particularly well made model is circulating around Europe.
Submachine guns are one of the easiest repeaters to make at home or in small workshops. It is not surprising they are a favorite of black market gun makers.

What a cute little Room Broom...!!!
Irritating that the left keeps getting away with this one.
“...to turn weapons into police...”
Thanks for catching that typo!
My pleasure. I enjoy your writing, and don’t usually play grammar Nazi unless the error is particularly amusing.
