Best Answer

The machine gun was first introduced in World War II. This was the first war with massive numbers of casualties due to destructive weaponry and guerilla warfare, among other causes. It is impossible to pinpoint exactly how many deaths the machine gun has caused since its introduction, or even in that war alone.

Machine gun or machinegun. All of them are automatic, so it is redundant to say that. There is no such thing as a semi automatic machine gun, or a single shot machine gun. That answer is correct, but many people use the term fully automatic machine gun or full auto machine gun to specify they are not talking about a semi-auto pistol or rifle, which are commonly referred to as autos, and sometimes that term confuses people.
