Last time I checked the rules prospective buyers were supposed to be part of some sort of competitive shooting organization. Is this still in effect? Seem to me ANY US citizen that wants one should be able to throw his hat in the ring. My Aunt Edna wouldn't know which end of the gun to hold, but it seems her tax dollars went into buying guns for the DOD. Why shouldn't she get one? We all paid in at one pont. Am I right?
