Not sure where you get your info, but you are absolutely wrong.
Yes class III is available. But this is for dealers, collectors etc. MOST people won't pass the check for class III, even if they can pass for purchase of an AR 15 semi. There is then the tax stamp issue, added cost and wait period for any purchase like this.

But I'm not absolutely wrong. Thompson sub machine guns have been illegal since 1931. Are there exceptions? Of course, as in anything.

Don't get your panties in a wad.
