Comment: Re:People who don't review (Score 1) 116 116

Not just people with problems review items now. With so few people in the work force, many people have all day with not much to do (seniors, stay at home moms...). Hence the very well done reviews. I've seen multi-page positive reviews that had to have taken an hour or two to write.

Way off. May 1986 was when the Hughes Amendment took effect, which was a part of the FOPA.

Fully automatic machine guns made after may of 1986 were at that point made illegal. Pre 86 machine guns are legal and transferrable so long as the ATF approves the transfer (and the gun is in the NFA registry, legal in your state etc).

Real computer scientists don't program in assembler. They don't write in anything less portable than a number two pencil.
