The indictment of ten foreign nationals on charges that they tried to smuggle dozens of .50 caliber rifles out of the U.S. and into the hands of alleged terrorists in Colombia, has given gun control groups another reason to push for a ban of the rifle.


Just what we needed. :banghead:

Under federal law foreign nationals that are not permanent residents can not even legally purchase the weapons. Much less export them.

Convict them under the 1968 Gun Control Act and throw the book at them.

Shoot any gungrabber that proposes more laws. Problem solved.

Now, Now, It is against the rules of war to target humans with .50 cal weapons. It is, however legal to target equipment. There for we must shoot gun-grabbers shirts with a .50 cal, If they get hit, its just collateral damage:evil:

Nothing usual. Bad guys always come here and try to go shopping.

The IRA used to come over and buy guns here. Paddy loved the AR180.

FMLN (now known as MS-13) used to come up and buy ammo and guns.

I'd say most of the population pays no attention to gun stuff and has no idea what the diff is between a 1/2 and 1/4 inch let alone caliber defintion. All they hear is "Gun" and agree that the criminals should not have guns so ban them. Since an honest person has no need for one, ban them.

Then they go off and make a living giving 40% of their wages to their governments, the peoples pocket.

Today's my anti- gov day.

.50 cal. rifles are like a front door: No home should be without one.:D Sadly, I am remiss in my obligation to own and shoot a .50 and therefore whip the antigun bigots into a frenzy, due to financial reasons.:(

Barrett is coming out with a new rifle and a new caliber - the .416 Barrett:D
It is supposed to have a much flatter trajectory than the .50, and deliver devastating results at 2500 yards - that's 1.3 miles, with a .416 bullet leaving the muzzle at 3200 fps!!:D :D

Being a sub .50 caliber, it is 50 states legal. I saw a magazine at Barnnes and Noble that Barrett put out about their rifles that tells all about it.

The .416 Barrett is supposed to make its grand debut at this year's SHOT show.

Maybe its time to get a part-time job and start saving up!!:D

Here's an outstanding article from Barrett's website on the anti-50 caliber witch hunt and the lies it is founded upon:
