Full auto OK'd for the general public

Or am I dreaming? I just received the following alert from glock.com:

Exciting Announcement From TGSCOM

NFA laws have been repealed through a long standing court battle in the 7th US Circuit Court. The president of TGSCOM had sued the federal government on the grounds that the NFA law violated the Second Amendment of the Constitution. After heated and lengthy oral arguments, TGSCOM is now able to sell fully automatic weapons to the general public without tax stamps and the additional background check. The one stipulation to the agreement is that fully automatic rifles will be treated like handguns in that they will require a purchaser of 21 and older, the firearm must be transferred in the state of their residence (same as handguns) and that the buyer must submit to all regulations in the state of their residence.

What this means for you
We will now be adding a limited number of fully automatic firearms to our inventory. They will be sold on a first come first served basis. The benefit is that not only can you own them, but they do not have the $20,000 price tag they normally do.

California residents
Since this ruling is so new, there are no restrictions for California residents. Bet on the fact that they will be up to speed very quickly with reducing your Constitutional rights so take full advantage while you can!

Eric R. Thompson
President


TGSCOM Inc.

I'm sure I am missing something here, but the news alert is dated March 31, 2009. What are they talking about? Is this is old news that has nothing to do with opening up the registration?

It's also the day for icy hot on toilet seats, itching powder in between sheets, and salt in the sugar bowl.

How about Glock announcing the Glock Carbine and Slim 9mm? Did you get that e-mail from them?

On sale at WalMart.

Still waiting for my check from the Nigerians who promised it to me. Geez - who would pass up the opportunity to make thousands for only a few hundred sent to them?????????????????????????

BTW - I too ordered a few new Colt M4's with selective fire.

A Glock 18 would be nice, though
