TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie issued an absolute veto today of the bill that would have barred civilians’ use of .50-caliber weapons.
“The next time these four senators want you to support them with donations to their campaigns, tell them you cannot. Until they show that they will stand up for the American people and not the gun lobby, tell them you cannot support their candidacy,” he wrote in the letter obtained by NBC News.
“This is not a partisan thing, this is saving lives,” the mayor said on Morning Joe.
Democratic leaders fear the move could cost them a Senate majority
Or better yet you could invest your energy politicking for all those Blue Steel Democrats whose campaign fundraising efforts Michael Bloomberg is trying so hard to torpedo.
The idea of using the 50cal Browning cartridge in anything other than the heavy machine gun for which it was intended is basically stupid in my estimation. There are much better cartridges for long-range hunting and/or sniper rifles and, again in my estimation, the idea of letting a sniper target anything past about 1000 yards is basically stupid, that's what artillery is for.
The 50 Alaskan could probably kill anything that ever walked the Earth.
