Yep, there's a lot of it out there, mostly in the AR variants. But we're not talking about AR variants here which are a dime a dozen in any sporting good store nowadays. "Reasonableness" evolves. 30 years ago, any cop seeing an AR would have thought "M16" and would have assumed it was the rock and roll variant. Now, I might hardly bat my eyes harder than I would for any other firearm. The GSG22 is exponentially less common, and are much more "niche". It only goes to prove my point IMO. An AR firearm is still a viable platform, even in its semi auto form, for many things. The GSG isn't really viable for anything useful...it doesn't do well as a .22LR hunting platform, and it definitely isn't for man-stopping. People buy it to plink with because it
The shear amount of weaponry that could resemble an automatic weapon takes us right back to the "equipped to be a prostitute" argument. If a female, wearing a short skirt and full-on makeup, loitering on a street corner and stopping to talk to passing motorists constitutes an offer and agreement then I'll eat mah hat.
