The worst thing about that story is that they didn't convict him of "possession," but of "transferring," because he loaned the properly functioning rifle to someone else. It malfunctioned later on the range, and the prosecutor was able to stretch that into having transferred a machine gun. They leaned on the guy he loaned it to until he rolled over and testified for the prosecution.

I don't know how they got a jury to go along with it.

... Wait, this is modern America. It doesn't have to make sense.

I don't loan my guns anyway, but that goes double now for semi-autos.
