Bill cites the United States' lack of background checks for the ease with which he acquired his weapons. This is incorrect for multiple reasons. Since Bill's weapons are machine guns, they are subject to the FOPA, or The Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986, which banned the sale and manufacture of machine guns. While fully automatic machine guns can still be purchased by civilians, their ownership is closely monitored and subject to an exhaustive federal background check, federal licensing, and a very steep purchase price (in the tens of thousands of dollars). Additionally, they cannot be sold between private parties without a mandatory federal background check. There is no possible way Bill could have acquired his weapons legally, which would negate the purpose of a background check.
