    Obviously you've never owned or fired a Auto Ordnance Thompson .
    I do and have and it is a quality piece
    It never missed a beat until the Liberals placed it under house arrest .


    large police presence at the Halifax Shopping Mall on Saturday.
    Police said in an email there was "no active shooter situation" but seven youths who had a slingshot were taken into custody.

    I wonder if someone could bring one of these up as they’re built on brand new semi auto receivers.

    They already did that (in the '70s?) The 1927A1 was built on a newly designed semi-auto receiver and the manufacturer went to great pains to satisfy the ATF that no full-auto parts would fit. It looked kind of funny because it had a long (18"?) barrel to avoid the American short-barrelled-rifle rule. They even made a version for the Canadian market with a 19" barrel to make it non-restricted. They couldn't fool the Canadian government, though. They banned all Thompson "variants". They also specifically banned the 1927A1 by name. While they were at it, they also banned the .22 rimfire look-alike by name.

    Presumably. the same thing is going to happen to all MP40, MG34, Soumi, and other look-alikes the next time they get around to making up a list of new prohibs. It's already in the process of happening to the M16 look-alike called the AR15.

    People race to write "prohib" to sound all informed.
    Vote CPC with expectations. Hold the praetorians to account for preserving the Firearms Act.

    The Auto Ordnance that built your Tommy gun is not the same Auto Ordnance that exists today. Just like today's Springfield Armoury and Armalite being nothing more than namesakes of the original companies.
