    Of course, when asked about crime stats with .50s, they admit that there hasn't been any. Go figure.

    I hate this city.

    Matt Gonzalez is an admitted socialist. He has no idea what he is doing judging from his actions.

    For one, any hunting rifle will penetrate armor if the right bullet is used. The Bullet itself may go up to four miles, but can most people hit the target?

    This is real silly. Attacking refineries is illegal anyway... So how is this going to stop terrorist attacks with .50 rifles?

    Yeah, they're so "prevalent," I'll bet there aren't five of these rifles in the entire city of San Francisco; heavily armed murderers walking around on the loose, by contrast...

    The gun lobby needs to tell its attorney not to oversimplify the ease of firearms purchase.

    No metion of an FFL needed and the regulations there of.

    This kind of loose information is bad enough from Feinstein, much worst from our side.

    Note the clever quoting:

    Chuck Michel never said any such thing (re. "available easily over the Internet.") That's an editorial insertion.

    There are no gun stores in SF selling .50s?

    So just what does this thing ban??

    The one remaining store in SF gets by by doing gunsmithing and selling to LE. I try and pick up ammo when I need it just to support them some.

    High Bridge Arms (last gun store in SF...) did have an AR-50 in the case for a while. Did it finally sell?

    The M82 is banned by CA's Assault Weapon Control Act because the M82 is centerfire, has a detachable magazine, and has a pistol grip.

    Dianne Feinstein, widely believed to be insane for pursuing a losing cause, still wants "Mr. and Mrs. America [to] turn them all in" except for her government financed bodyguards, police, and people to whom she owes favors. Feinstein, despite carrying a firearm for her own protection, believes that "banning guns addresses a fundamental need of all Americans [except Sen. Feinstein] to feel safe."


    Look! I can play too!!

    I didn't know she did this. If we don't have a right even own or carry a gun for protection then why does she?

    She is a deputy federal marshal too. So she has access to P90s and MP5Ks and OICWs and everything else the peasants can never hope to own. Even if they take away her CCW she can still pack 24/7 with post-sample machineguns.

    Feinswine is a total hypocrite. Whoever thinks ********** isn't a police state has their head buried in the sand or up their ass. The ruling class and their personal enforcers in KA live by a completely different set of rules from the serfs.

    Hell even the SFPD over there can't get semi-auto patrol rifles. Guess you gotta be a bodyguard for someone 'important' to get one there. :barf:

    Gee, and maybe they should ban passenger jets to prevent another 9/11. Just as logical. Criminals don't give a damn about what's banned or not. By definition, they're the folks who disregard laws. And anyway, if something is banned in one city or county, what's to stop Joe Terrorist from heading just out of the city limits to buy his weapon of choice there? (Making the ridiculous assumption that terrorists all walk into your neighborhood firearms dealer to purchase their guns legally.)

    I think it was Chuckie Schumer awhile back quoted as saying the .50 could penetrate a limousine at over a mile.............
