Nope. It's because they're too scared of The Marines.

 

But "eats crayons like a Marine" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Those early ones were scary!

If you ran out of grenades while clearing rooms, put in the magazine, put it to full cock, throw it into the room and duck behind something solid!

It would stop firing when the mag went dry.

The Sterling was a little better, but I recall one fellow getting off the truck on a guard change during the FLQ Crisis and almost cutting himself in two.

I still preferred it to simply carrying a HP but I carried it closed bolt and nothing chambered.

We made them at Long Branch Arsenal near Toronto, Ontario

I understand they cost around $10.00 to make, because they were mostly stampings, thus making the type an easily manufactured illegal SMG, for the criminal market.

Been that guy, at Navy AOCS

 

Went back as staff as a twilight tour, so have another perspective -- notice the quiet conversation taking place at the left side of the photo?
