@McBoozerilla There is no gun show loophole for automatic weapons. If you try to buy a fully-automatic weapon at a gun show, you have to go through all the same process as if you bought it from a dealer. And O'Reilly is clearly biased in the argument. You can tell by the way you tries to paint the picture that a Kalashnikov-pattern rifle is "Heavy Armament." Civilian AKs (single shot, the only kind you can buy without NFA restriction) fire ONE 7.62x39 round per trigger pull. Like the 5.56 there is nothing magical or even noteworthy about the round. Its a standard .30 caliber bullet with a sub-par powder charge behind it. Any .30 caliber hunting round blows it out of the water in terms of accuracy, range and power. .308 AKA 7.62x51 NATO is far and away the superior cartridge.
