In addition, the Uzi is obviously the semi-auto Carbine model, with a longer barrel that is legal for civilian ownership in the U.S. It is a felony for a civilian to own a full-auto gun without having a federal license for each such gun.

Fun and underrated sequel!!!!!!
5 March 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

Although a lot of people said this was a bad movie, I liked it. It had great special effects and good acting. This was not as good as the first HOUSE movie, but I still liked it. It was funny (but maybe a bit silly.) and entertaining. I recommend this movie. Not as good as the first, but still fun, with great effects and humor. Not bad, and pretty cool.
