I'm no gun expert, but I think in some states they are legal. As for which ones, you'll have to check. It's just you'll have to jump through a lot of hoops if you want to get an automatic weapon into the country, so always try to buy in the US. Fully automatic guns are legal in MOST states. To purchase one legally, you have to go through a class 3 dealer, fill out a bunch of paperwork, pay a $200 tax, and wait for an approval from the BATF. It normally takes several months, and most fully automatic guns are pretty expensive.
