Fox News' Dana Perino showed how easily Stephen Paddock's semi-automatic rifle was modified into a full 'machine gun' killing machine that was used in the Las Vegas massacre.

In her new show 'The Daily Briefing W/Dana Perino,' reporter Jonathan Hunt showed the first pictures of some of Paddock's weapons that he used in the Las Vegas Massacre.

Two of the rifles were turned into high powered, fully automatic killing machines and without these modifications, Paddock could not have harmed as many people as he did.

Hunt said, "We are hearing now from an ATF source confirming that some of the weapons he used were indeed modified to take them from semiautomatic to fully automatic."

He continued, "Our ATF source says the information for to do that and the components needed to do that are easily available on the internet. Take a look at one video."

Hunt then showed a video of how a rifle was turned into a machine gun and the insane amount of bullets it can fire so quickly.

Hunt said, "This is the kind of video that explains to anyone who wants to modify a weapon, how to do it."

He tells and the video shows us how easy it is to do so.

"In layman's terms, it turns a semiautomatic into a machine gun. A machine gun. That gives you a very clear idea of just how easy it was there for Stephen Paddock to rain so much death on those innocent concert goers."

We've seen countless videos on cable TV news showing us how many rounds were being fired down on those innocent people. It was horrific.

So how about we pass legislation forcing gun manufacturers to make it impossible to manipulate their weapons into (WMMs) out right weapons to murder mass amounts of people with rather than teaching viewers how to do it?

Is that too much to ask?

Why do these "gun enthusiasts" need machine guns to kill a fu*king deer?

Can you help us out?
