    why does it matter if its a machine gun or a gatling gun, if u dont have to cock it each time, its a machine gun, so a gat is a machine gun

    A Gatling Gun IS a machine gun. Actually, the first machine gun I believe.

    technically the romans made the first machine gun they had a ballista which loaded and cocked itself back just like a machine gun so they really made the first machine gun
