I was just reading a Tactical Guns magazine. Barrett has developed a new gun in .419. Legal in Cali, and the older 50 cals just need to have the barrel switched out. The shells just need to be re necked. Will we see the anti gunners start working their way down in calibers until only a .22 is allowed?

.22's have been responsible for many a death. They are no safer than any other caliber.

From what I understand, all .50 cal are legal in CA, EXCEPT the one model of Barett.

If you want a real laugh, visit http://www.50caliberterror.com/ and view some of the most uninformed opinions. The flash animation alone made me laugh my ass off since it's virtually impossible.

Tard liberal gun control freaks specified .50 BMG in the wording of the bill--buy now before they figure it out. Kennesaw, GA passed a law mandating all non-criminals not mentally-ill to carry guns. Washington, D.C. has some of the strictest anti-gun laws. The proof is in the pudding (data given is per 100,000 people): Kennesaw Violent Crimes 91.4 Kennesaw Murders 3.8 Kennesaw Rapes 7.6 Kennesaw Robberies 34.3 Kennesaw Aggravated Assaults 45.7 Washington Violent Crimes 1325.3 Washington Murders 35.8 Washington Rapes 39.4 Washington Robberies 552.3 Washington Aggravated Assaults 697.9

I may have you confused with someone else, but I do remember you posting off the wall theories and political ideas from time to time.

Well heres a fact for you from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Since Automatic weapons and hand guns were banned in 1996 after the Martin Bryant spree killings - Guns used in hold ups down 30% - Deaths due to gunshot down about 30% A whole mess of things obviously contribute to this. It seems it has helped though.

Osumo, gun crime has also been down in the U.S. on a steady trend since the 90s. I promise you that there are a number of other circumstances attributing to the decline in crime. Also, it's very easy to lie with statistics like "Deaths due to gunshot" since you can also include criminals being shot by people defending themselves. Besides, it's not worth it to give up firearms due to figures and statistics. I did a little digging and it appears that gun crime had steadily been decreasing before the gun ban and afterwards, assaults and break-ins increased. You must be very careful when listening to a goverment bureau doling out statistics when it has an interest in said program.

I have the Barret .50. If you owned it before the ban you are fine.

Why is the .50 illegal? I'd imagine the caliber responsible for the most deaths in the US would probably be the 9 mm, the .38, the .380 or the .22. Why the .50?!?!

here's some shocking video from Afghanistan of what the .50 caliber sniper rifles do to people. Someone please make a link to it, thanks. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5820322807673807576&q=sniper

Look at what a 2,000 pound car can do. The round has been around for 80 years. Why is it now a hazzard to people?

You could shoot down a plane with any of several large calibre rifles, most big game guns for sure, the BMG is just the new whipping boy. Hell, you can knock down a landing plane with a model rocket if you know what you're doing

Jiish... it's not like it's an ordinary caliber, or a big game hunting caliber, it's the frigging .50 BMG for chrissakes. That caliber is meant to be used against unarmored and lightly armored vehicles, boats and pirates, helicopters etc. It's like triple overkill for anything alive, including elephants. They're not talking about the .50AE....
