He's not making a joke about the toothpick part. There are a few firearms that can be "converted to a machinegun" with as little as a toothpick in the right spot or even just reversing a part in the weapon.

I'm not going to say what weapons or how because with the way the BATF is run even a shoelace has been called an "illegal Machinegun".

From what I've read just the removal or wearing out of the disconnector spring on an AR-15 can cause fully-automatic firing.

Good thing you're in Canada, because that's a FELONY in the U.S. What happens in Canada, STAYS in Canada....

Not full-auto, exactly, but discharge of two rounds with one pull of the trigger. If this happens, then by BATF's definition, you are now in possession of an illegal machine gun.

I only we went by the Texas penal code, regarding fully automatic weapons

"Machine gun" means any firearm that is capable of shooting more than two shots automatically, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.

Texas used to have a rogue ATF agent named Aguilar I think, back in the 1980s. He used to have the 'bump fire' technique perfected before anyone knew what it was. He delighted in 'getting and arresting' AR-15 owners who had shot their rifles so much that the internal parts were worn. He managed to 'bump fire' a number of guns and 'Presto', numerous innocent gun owners were sent to prison (and lost all their guns) because they had an illegal machine gun. Aguilar even boasted regarding the number of people he had sent to prison, due primarily to his particular skill in 'bump firing' to get a conviction. Anyone who delights in 'twisting the system' to get wrongful convictions doesn't deserve the badge....

I'm suprised someone didn't pop him and bury him in their back pasture

He got a commendation and eventually retired on a full government pension.
