i *love* it when anyone starts spouting off the phrase "can shoot down airplanes and helicopters from more than a mile away" and "criminals and terrorists worldwide love this weapon".

yes, a .50 BMG can shoot down an airplane or helicopter from more than a mile away. so can a .22LR. the tricky part? trying to hit a tiny critical spot with one bullet, on a target moving 200+ MPH....

and if criminals and terrorists love this weapons, how come more people are killed with shopping carts and broken lawn chairs?

Brady bunch are insane. They're against the guns, when they should be against the criminals. If all the guns were removed from the American public, then only the criminals would have them. It's easy to disarm good Americans, but impossible to do with criminals nationwide.

Has there ever been a .50bmg weapon used in a crime that we know of?

If we cant find one i'd love to have some pro-gun group (.50 cal shooters org) offer up a 10k donation to them if one has been used in a murder or plane shooting.

Could be a good publicity stunt and might paint the brady group as the lairs they are.

It was a proactive ban designed to protect:

Refineries
Armored limos
Helicopters
Aircraft
Children
Spacecraft
The Mars Rover
Kittens

Since it was a proactive ban and not a reactionary ban, no proof or history of its use in a crime is needed.

Not that I think hunting with a .50 BMG isn't overkill, but that idiot on the clip who said that a dear would be blown away with no meat left needs to be smacked. I know people who have shot deer with a .50 BMG, and even ballistically speaking, it wouldn't blow the whole dear apart. . .

Too bad we can't hunt with Raufus.

Naw, you won't get within 50 yards without setting off my dogs! ;)

Like I always tell people when they ask me if I jog: I don't run unless I'm out of ammo. :D
