Like A Chance To Own An M14 Rifle?

M14 Rifles are, of course, banned for sale to US Citizens because they are capable of fully automatic fire and are thus classified as "machine guns" under the 1934 National Firearms Act. However, if the rifles are modified to fire in a semiautomatic mode only, they do not fall under the Act. A petition is circulating asking that M14 rifles be so converted so that they can be sold to US Citizens by the Civilian Marksmanship Program, just as M1 Rifles and Carbines are.

If you wish to sign the petition, go here.
