I encourage everyone to read cjhsa's link: it is a masterpiece of rambling, paranoid illogic.

In any event, why does anyone in California need a .50 caliber rifle? Are there hordes of wooly mammoths running wild in the streets of Fresno?

Yeah, that and Wayne LaPierre and all the rest of us NRA "gun nuts" who agree with Barrett.

We celebrate diversity here though. Wheee!

I didn't bother to get past the first sentence. I would accuse the writer of overkill, but that would probably come across as a compliment to these deep thinkers...

.....A Senate report said that a bullet from a .50-caliber rifle, even at 1.5 miles, crashes into a target with more energy than a bullet fired at point-blank range from Dirty Harry's famous .44 Magnum......

..... But New York City's Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says the .50-caliber rifle is in a class by itself. He agreed to show 60 Minutes just how powerful the .50 caliber is.

First, a police sharpshooter fired the NYPD's own .30 caliber sniper rifle at a steel target. Downrange, three football fields away, the three shots from the .30 caliber rifle bounced off the half-inch thick steel.

"You can see it hasn't penetrated it," says Kelly.

Then the sharpshooter fired three rounds from a Barrett .50-caliber rifle at the same target.

"Went right through," says Kelly. "It is clearly a weapon of war, a round to be used in a wartime situation. It's appropriate for the military. The effective range is about 2,000 yards. It's a very formidable weapon." ....

I'm with joe - this doesn't sound like a weapon that anyone outside the military needs.

Unbelievable!!
How can anyone express/justify their freedom by owning
a .50 caliber riffle?

People like Ronnie are a walking time bomb.

That is such a silly statement CJ. This is what he said:

"Barrett cannot legally sell any of its products to lawbreakers. Therefore, since California's passing of AB 50, the state is not in compliance with the US Constitution's 2nd and 14th Amendments, and we will not sell nor service any of our products to any Government agency of the State of California."

Walking time bomb, right!!!

We are rapidly giving rights to fringe groups while taking away those granted to decent, law abiding citizens. Tick, tick, tick....

Why should it be banned is a bigger question than who needs it. And why should it? Lots of 7/11s being taken down with the .50?

They even banned single shot 50-calibers.

Most muzzle loader blackpowder guns sold today are .50.....

What would you propose that hunters use to hunt with CJ? Or do you oppose hunting also? Prefer your deer to starve to death? Don't believe in wildlife management? Recently joined HSUS and PETA?

Enjoying a tofu burger?

I kind of appreciate that, CalamityJane. Not that I agree, but it's so much better than slinking around, trying to ban one gun because it's too little, and another because it's too big.

Private ownership of firearms is prohibited in many countries,
your reference to me being a fan of Hitler is quite appaling.

I oppose hunting as well. There are more humane ways
to control wildlife management, if in fact, it is needed.

I occasionally do enjoy a burger, however, I don't go and
shot a cow in order to satisfy my meat supply.

Hitler also came to power with a strong pro-life stance. He accused the Jews of killing unborn babies. Do you go around comparing the pro-life movement to Hitler?

And what does a hunter need this gun for?

These both seem like rather extreme, and irrelevant, red herrings.
