    Agreed the 50 Cal / AR-15 screw up is bad, but there are two issues: 1) no one took the time to teach her the difference, 2) no one corrected her.


    And no one is taking away anyone's .30/30 or .30-06 which are very similar to the .223. Just those guns aren't as "showy" as the AR-15 and it's paramilitary appearance.

    That's your answer to: What legal purpose do you have for a .50 cal?

    I don't have any purpose, legal or otherwise, for a .50 caliber gun. As someone who was always interested in WWII aircraft, I happened to recall that was one of the weapons that was mounted on things like bombers, for use in shooting down fighter aircraft that might be trying to attack them.

    I thought it was amusing that someone thinks that a .50 caliber rifle seems like a product someone needs to buy, so I posted my observation about its use in WWII.

    Kepler seems to have gotten my post, which is strange because Kepler rarely seems to get my posts, but whatever.

    If you really want to enact gun control, you might try legislation that requires all rifles to be .50 caliber or larger, because honestly I don't see too many people who would be interested in buying one. There are reasons why infantry men in WWII biatched about having to carry the .50 caliber machine gun. That weapon, and its ammo, is frigging heavy.

    The .50 caliber rifle is the ultimate d*ck enhancer...

    It's pretty common to see ranges that charge $10-20/shot for random people to shoot one... THey'll even let you keep the cartridge.

    As far as owning one, it's purely for bragging rights. There is absolutely no reason to have one for sport. The firearm is too bulky to be practical in the field. No one is shooting 1000yds + either. Something most people don't realize is that firearm is also pretty dang pricy to fire. Each trigger pull is around $5-7.

    I won't shed a tear if they went away tomorrow.

    It's the same question for the Desert Eagle .50.....do you really NEED one? No, you don't. I think a .44 or .45 would do just fine for your needs.

    On the other hand, it might not be such a terrible idea to stick one of those .50 calibers in my golf bag.

    Not a mass shooting. Send it to the "capitalism --> inequality --> poverty --> crime" thread.

    You're playing into his hands. joe wanted some black crime to obscure that mass killings are almost exclusively white conservatives. The Echo Chamber is nothing but a litany of black crime. Black on white if possible but black on black is cool, too.
