He must mean on Manhattan island, where it's as illegal as a 32 ounce soft rink or table salt. But even on the other side of the Hudson in New Jersey you "can" be licensed to own a machine gun. True, that permission has rarely if ever been granted in recent years, but it has been in the past and the law remained on the books. The Feds just require a $200 certified check, and a few months to conduct a leisurely background investigation. Blodget should get out of Moscow-on-the-Hudson, and visit America sometime. AFAIK, most states don't prohibit machine guns, although they aren't cheap since the supply is limited as a matter of law.
