ATF stats (If you can believe them) show Texas in the lead in machine gun ownership.
Data published in 2000 showed 18,919 NFA machine guns in Texas, more than any other state. There are 277,360 NFA machine guns in the US. Unless the ATF declares another amnesty or the Hughes amendment is repealed, that number isn’t going to change which is why the price of my M11 has increased over 700% since I bought it.
I would gladly give up ALL of that unrealized gain for a repeal of the Hughes amendment.
