Question regarding former military service

I know you can't believe everything you hear, but I heard something that disturbs me and I'd like to know if I can discard it or not. Someone told me that those with former military service are usually denied Class III weapons as civilians. I do eventually plan on owning a Class III weapon of some sort, even if I can't afford it now as a college student. If I can get in having had knee surgery, I'd love to earn the right to be called a US Marine. But I think it would be shameful of our country's government to deny our veterns and service men (and women) what is left of this basic human right. Please tell me it isn't so!

It is not so.

Curent and former member of the US armed forces are neither have an advantage or disadvantage in acquiring an NFA weapon over an otherwise similarly situated civilian. Its not held against you, but it doesn't grant you any special privileges with respect to what you can get, how you go through the process or the speed at which the applications are processed.

That said, if you are dishonorably discharged from the military none of the above applies.

Millitary service does not matter

I do not own a full auto, but a close friend has a M16 and M11 both full auto and he spent 6 years flying in the same P3 Anti submarine patrole aircraft squardon that I did in the 70's
