A machine gun is not a firearm?
Defense attorney Rosemary Curran Scapicchio insisted machine guns can be considered firearms.
Guida said a firearm is defined as any gun with a barrel less than 16 inches long. While some machine guns meet that definition, he said, all machine guns are in a different class because they are automatic weapons.
I will agree there should have been more adult over sight, and control in this case, I'm not willing to see the definition of what a firearm is by the court.
