Why are machine gun not allowed in ambulance?
obviously because they are dangerous and what if the patient had a seizure and knocked the gun. It would set it off and everyone would die.

In the U.S. you can legally buy a full auto through an NFA dealer (commonly called a class 3 dealer). Every gun dealer is not a class 3 dealer. The paperwork takes longer than a regular gun purchase, and only certain machine guns are legal to sell to civilians.
-answer- the first machine gun was invented during world war 1 (WW1). -feedback- my problem with this answer. is that it does not say the name ofthe gun more specifically nor does it say the nationstate that gotthis technology first, where as the first rapid fire turrent was inthe year 1862 and it …was the Americans. it was called gatling gun.also one of the first guns for personnel to carry was somethinglike a tommy gun in the 1930s and 1940s. i need to know this for agame im working on called Call to power II :World at war mod. ifthis is true i could use civilian machine gunners much more sooner.

The first self-powered machine gun the Maxim gun was invented by Sir Hiram Maxim in 1884.
A machine gun is basically an automatic rifle, it has working gas parts which means that the bolt can cock itself instead of a manual cock, therefore the gun can fire faster, if you watch a video of a machine gun you will see the working parts moving backwards and forwards on their own this is the a…utomatic cocking hense why we say its "automatic". machine guns come in variations a proper machine gun is mounted a light machine gun is just a lighter mounted machine gun such as a GPMG or MINIME or SAW and then there are submachine guns which are a lot more compact.a firearm that has continuous firing when trigger is depressed and ceases firing when trigger is released or until ammo runs out.

A machine gun, is a self-loading gun that can fire multiple shots with a single actuation of a trigger. It will fire for as long as the trigger is held pulled or pressed or until the ammunition runs out. Machine guns are also called automatic guns, or fully automatic, to distinguish from semi-auto s…elf-loading guns that fire once per actuation of the trigger. Machine guns can be recoil-operated, gas-operated, or externally driven by hydraulic, electric or other means. Most machine guns have a single barrel, however some have multiple barrels in a rotating assembly. The difference between those and other multi-barrel systems such as volley guns is that only one barrel fires at a time. ( Full Answer )
Since its creation, the machine gun has developed from big and heavy to small and light. There were technically machines since at least the 1700s, but the ones that were actually used were basically shaped as artillery pieces with multiple barrels (ex: The gatling gun was used in the American-Sp…anish war) It started off as an actual machine gun as a weapon with two wooden handles,a round barrell and a bipod stand. This was made by Hiram Maxim in the mid 1800s, he named his gun "the Maxim Machine Gun". It was reported to have shot over 600 rounds per minute. machine guns often have similar characteristics: 1: Operated by a series of mechanics and such 2: Can shoot more than current standard rifles of their time 3: Modern ones are often gas-cooled ( Full Answer )
Russians used tri-pod mounted machineguns (quite successfully) against the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War 1904-1905.

The earliest versions of machine guns were around during the 1700's, with the gatling gun patented in 1884 being the first that was fully automatic (firing required only the trigger to be held). the more modern machine guns would be worked on throughout WWI on into WWII, when the modern machine gun …began to appear.

The "typical" maximum effective range of a 7.62mm NATO machinegun is approximately 700-1000 M depending of course on the abilities of the gunner. This can vary with the addition of optical sights and the mounting of the machinegun. If the MG is mounted on a tripod it will be more accurate than a sha…ky bipod mount. Heavier machineguns, .50 cal and 12.5mm etc have a longer effective range due to the higher propellant charge and stability of the larger projectiles over range. Also with the heavier machine guns they are often mounted in armored fighting vehicles (tanks and apc's) which will, more often than not, have optical sights and computerized ranging. This makes their effective range quite a lot more than an infantryman with his bipod mounted MG. MG range is very situational and cannot really be tied down to one simple answer. ( Full Answer )
They are heavy to carry. The M-60 machine gun used by Grunts in Vietnam weighed approximately 21 pounds; the .308 ammunition (7.62mm NATO) weighed several pounds more; especially when carrying 300 rounds. Two hundred (in two belts) rounds came in one ammo can.. As long as a GI can carry & feed the …weapon, they're great! They eat lots of ammo; but if it's NOT a problem to carry the ammo...then there are few to no disadvantages to machine guns.. The best place for carrying extra MG ammo was atop ACAV's (M-113 APC/Armored Personnel Carriers/Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicles) in Vietnam. The "track" (M-113) did all of the ammo carrying; the machine gunner just supported the weapon somewhere atop the "track" and kept shooting...extra belts were handed to him from the tons (litterly) sitting topside & inside the APC/ACAV. All machine guns in Vietnam came with spare barrels; when one was burned up, using asbestos gloves which were issued...the barrel was replaced. ( Full Answer )
Machine guns use several different mechanisms that enable them to shoot rapidly. One type of mechanism uses the recoil from the cartridge to cycle the bolt backwards and load another cartridge on the return stroke. Another mechanism uses an electric motor to load and unload cartridges, and rotate th…e barrels ( Full Answer )
The Thompson submachine gun. The weapon was chambered for the .45 caliber Colt automatic pistol round. It was developed for the Army as an assault weapon, and was used as such through WW2 and even Vietnam. Unfortunately, it was also enormously popular with gangsters. Ironically, Kelly never k…illed anyone with his " Tommy Gun ." His second wife, Kathryn Thorne is said to have purchased Kelly's first Tommy gun and shamelessly promoted Kelly's reputation as "Machine Gun Kelly." This is not to say he was a pussycat, but he wasn't a killer. Kelly was one of the few gangsters of the prohibition era to actually die in prison, in 1954. ( Full Answer )
A machine gun is a firearm that with one pull of the trigger will feed and fire 2 or more rounds in succession. Most machine guns are belt fed and fire high powered rifle ammunition.

Both the M113 APC (used as an ACAV in Vietnam) and the M551 Sheridan tank (Airborne Armored Assault Reconnaissance Vehicle) were both new in Vietnam; 1962 and 1969 respectively. Both were constructed of aluminum (the Sheridan's turret & 152mm main gun were steel) and both were equipped with Browning… .50 caliber machineguns. ( Full Answer )
Machine guns fire a rifle round and are built for continuous firing from belts of ammo whereas sub-machine guns fire a pistol round from a magazine, short periods of fire.
Manufacture of machine guns is stringently regulated by the US Government. Your first step will be to apply for a license as a manufacturer of machine guns, and pay the several thousand dollar license fee. Failure to do so is punishable by 10 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000.
During the 80's, while on maneuvers, the US Army often had available a gas/oxygen type hook-up with tubes and cords feeding into a mock-up .50 machinegun. It sounded loud and real, and never ran out of ammo (until the steel tanks were empty). It was an enjoyable experience; in contrast to real fifti…es firing blanks WHICH ALWAYS JAMMED. More time was spent "clearing machine guns firing blanks" than playing war (maneuvers). ( Full Answer )
The collective nouns are a collection of guns or an armory of guns and a nest of machine guns.
Enfilade/defilade fires, direct fire, indirect fire, fire suppression, final protective lines.. there's a few different types, and it's impossible to be specific with a question worded so vaguely as this one is.
it is an established machine gun position. Because the gun implacement is usually round and deep, it appears like a 'bird's nest' from a distance i.e., MACHINE GUN NEST
The Thompson submachine gun was developed between 1917 and 1919 by John T. Thompson. They went into production in 1921 at the Auto-Ordinance Company, though production has since moved to Birmingham Small Arms, Colt, and Savage Arms. They are still produced today. If you're interested in owning a Th…ompson, it's rather difficult for a civilian to own a full-automatic firearm (though legal in most states). If you're interested in a semi-automatic variant, the Thompson model 1927A5 (under the model "M1927A1 TA5") has been produced by Kahr Arms since 2008. ( Full Answer )
basically like a normal machine gun its just smaller for better maneuverability. A submachine gun works by cycling the bolt carrier rearwards to cock the weapon. When the bolt carrier is released by depressing the trigger, it moves forward chambering a round, locking the bolt and then firing. The… recoil from the round unlocks the bolt and pushes the bolt carrier rearwards again which strips the round from the chamber and ejects it from the weapon. ( Full Answer )
You would need the correct Federal Firearms dealer's license, that permits dealing in automatic weapons. Its likely however that the US government would consider the weapon still to be government property.
Vietnam war: Medium MGs- 1. USA/USMC used the M60 belt fed machine gun, equipped w/bi-pod. 2. NVA used the drum fed RPD. Vietnam war: Heavy MGs- 1. USA/USMC used the M2 Browning .50 caliber mgs. 2. NVA used the .51 caliber often tri-pod mounted.
They don't- but are most effective when firing over ground that uniformly slopes away from the gun. This permits "grazing" fire- all bullets travel at the height of a man.
Depends on where you are, and who you are. In the MOST of the US, it is legal for a private citizen to own a machine gun, but it is strongly regulated. To purchase a machine gun, you must be 21, be able to own a firearm, pass a background and fingerprint check, have approval from local law enforceme…nt, arrange transfer through a dealer with a license to sell machine guns, pay a $200 transfer tax, and have a LARGE checkbook. A LEGAL M16 rifle (machine gun) sells for about $16,000. A belt fed M60 is about $37,000. ( Full Answer )
Yes, as long as they are attending an emergency call and check it's safe to proceed.
Hiram Maxim's machine gun -- arguably the most effective man-portable instrument of death ever made -- literally transformed warfare in the first part of the 20th century. Before its invention, wars were fought in a series of engagements between groups of mobile troops firing single-shot or bolt-act…ion rifles. Once the machine gun was introduced, especially during World War 1, warfare became a static affair, with each side effectively "pinned down" under the muzzles of the other side's machine guns. The machine gun enabled a two-man crew to dominate a field of battle that literally measured in acres. Within its range, an enemy soldier risked his life merely standing up. Early descriptions of the machine gun's effects refer to the "mowing down" of troops; in that day, mowing was done with a scythe, the implement often associated with the Grim Reaper. Looking at US versions, the first used ammunition equivalent to the civilian .30-06 Springfield round, which is still widely used by hunters today, and is well known for its stopping power on large North American game up to and including elk. By World War 2, US machine guns were available in .30 caliber ("light")and .50 caliber ("heavy"). Most US fighter planes and tanks sported the big Browning .50's, which launched massive 750-grain bullets at 2,700 feet per second. A single slug could literally shatter the engine block in an enemy vehicle. ( Full Answer )
Not actual machine guns, but something of a predecessor to it - the hand cranked Gatling Gun.
Fabrique Nationale USA. The M240 is a variant of the FN MAG, originally manufactured by Fabrique Nationale (Belgium) in the late 1950s, and produced under licence in a number of countries (as well as an unlicenced production in the Peoples Republic of China).
The machine gun caused 90%+ of the casualties during WW1, so it effected it greatly. The machine rejected trench assaults as it allowed you to mow down your attackers before they could even reach you.

If you live in a state where machine guns are legal, you must find a shooting range that is a class III dealer and has a machine gun to rent. Otherwise, to legally shoot one, you have to find someone who owns a machine gun and let them take you to the range.
Originally, they provided of short range rapid fire firepower as a compliment to the full caliber bolt action and semi automatic rifles of the time. They've been largely replaced in this role by modern assault rifles. They were also used by personnel who needed a weapon which could be accessible in …tight spaces (e.g., vehicle crew members, special operations, etc.). ( Full Answer )
well it depends. in short range, machine guns w/ their rapid fire and long clip, it can take out infantry better than a rifle. in long range, rifles are more accurate and really good to take out infantry if u r hiding in a bunker or somehting.
the AK-47 is by far the most used machine-gun to date, it is estimated that 1 billion people have been killed with this weapon in armed conflicts ranging from Africa to Eastern Europe to the Middle East to Central Asia to Southeast Asiaâ¦ Except that the AK-47 is not a machine gun, if you want… to get technical - it's an assault rifle, whereas a machine gun is a support weapon, usually crew served. In which case, it would probably be the PK machine gun, followed closely by the FN MAG. ( Full Answer )
Yes, it can, but it would be very hard to use because of the amount of muzzle rise.
Yes, but they are highly restricted by laws passed in 1934, 1968, and 1986. The paperwork to possess a machine gun takes months to be processed. Possession without this paperwork is a federal felony worth 10 years in federal prison.

Some machine guns are and some are not. The answer would be yes and no.
Yes, machine guns are much faster than Gatling guns. Gatling guns must be hand cranked and fed bullets at the same but machine guns does not have to be hand cranked. All they needs are bullets. Machine guns also fire more bullets faster than Gatling guns.

Generally, a sub-machine gun fires a handgun round and a machine gun fires a rifle round.
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. ( Full Answer )
