Are you wearing FULL - AUTO Shoestrings?

From Say Uncle:

"You can apparently take a semi-automatic AK type rifle and attach 14 inch long shoestring with looped ends, loop one end around the trigger and attach it to your finger, then tie the other end to the cocking handle to increase the rate of fire. As such, the ATF has ruled that such a shoestring is classified under 26 USC 5845(b) as a machine gun. It is therefore contraband if not registered under the National Firearms Act."

"Seriously, read the letter from the ATF’s Firearms Technology Branch here."

ATF's got too much time on their hands, maybe?

Between registering these and soda bottles, I'm running out of stuff.

Well, it seems to me that the whole problem here is looping the string around the op-rod handle. As long as you don't do that, I THINK you'd be legal, as you would have to pull the string once per shot.

Well, what about the gizmos I've seen that have a cam and a crank that mounts on the trigger guard, and you crank the crank and get full-auto rate of fire.

Or the gizmo that extends the trigger into a little paddle arrangement so you can bat it with your middle fingers, something you can do much more rapidly than flexing your trigger finger.

The ATF has approved both of these devices.

Also OK to possess a Gatling Gun of the hand-cranked type.

it works, but you could just learn to "bump fire" instead and get the same result
