Will St. Clair County Sheriff's Department destroy piece of history?

The problem, of course, is that the gun's nature as a machine gun transforms it--from a fascinating and proud piece of history, to a blighted, morally corrupt piece of contraband, subjecting the possessor to a quarter million dollar fine and ten years in the federal slammer.

Years ago, I wrote about something similar, although that machine gun had even vastly more historical significance, having been captured from the Germans by Alvin York, in the kind of magnificent feat of arms for which patriotic Americans still take justifiable pride, nearly a century later. That story ended well, with the gun going to a museum, but at one time, it seemed as if this magnificent piece of history would be destroyed, as directed by the ATF. [More]
