Police Officers in Connecticut discover and save a rare gun that was turned in during a gun buy back. The WWII StG 44 is a Nazi assault rifle that is worth over 30k. About the StG 44: The StG 44 was an assault rifle developed in Nazi Germany during World War II that was the first of its kind to see major deployment and is considered by many historians to be the first modern assault rifle. It is also known under the designations MP 43 and MP 44, which denote earlier development versions of the same weapon with some differences like a different butt end, muzzle nut, shape of the front sight base or with an unstepped barrel, all only visible with close inspection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StG_44

    Only problem is federal law. This is an unregistered fully automatic capable weapon, which CANNOT be owned by any entity other than law enforcement or a museum. If it had been registered during the "amnesty" period ca. 1986, there would be no problem - buy the tax stamp and everything is cool. BUT, the way the law reads there is no legal way to register it now. Ergo, law enforcement, museum or shredder, that is it. Totally stupid, I agree, but that is the law.
