    This is just... wow.. the examples she gives are staggering. We should just throw ourselves off a cliff for being so SELFISH not to give up our dangerous weapons!

    That's nice, but I fail to see a .50 actually being USED in any of those crimes :ugh2:

    i was looking for that too... and didnt see jack shit. whoever did that article is a moron. guess i better save up for a .50 now, since they are going to ban them. they fail to realize that a .338 lapua will do just as much damage at closer range.

    Hey now... remember... these are 50 cal's... they'll kill babies just leaning in a corner, or sitting on a shelf all by themselves...

    There are more cases in the linked article. I think there was one or two where one was actually fired but they were all cases where other weapons were involved, thereby eliminating the possibility that anything may have been prevented by making them illegal. For cryin out loud, a bunch of them are people being arrested for ILLEGAL WEAPONS, so how is making it illegal going to PREVENT THAT??

    Wow, so besides the people actually owning the weapons they never used them in any sort of crime.

    And then we have the recent movies Smokin Aces and Shooter (any others?) showing the horrible sniper rifle super damage a .50 does.

    Media agenda? Nooooo.

    lol at thinking you need a .50 to take a helicopter out.

    We lost more aircraft in Vietnam to small arms fire than anything else. AA wise

    I want a Barrett.
    I don't need one, but man - they're cool.
    I suppose if I was allowed to buy a Death Star I would want one too.
    Human nature I guess.
    BTW - no .50 cals in crimes b/c most are too heavy and expensive
    better to risk a lighter, cheaper weapon.

    You have to keep them double locked and disassembled otherwise they'll sneak out and join the Taliban

    that was a .50 cal. if you recall the scene where they are in the office and he comes in shackled, he has a .50 cal bullet and clearly its a .50cal painted.also, the recovered bullet from the ethiopian guy was a .50 that they picked up from him shooting at his house. the green camo gun or the white painted gun were the .408 cheytecs. might have to watch the movie again just to verify. it was a good action packed movie.
