Oh, it's good for hunting. The only problem with that is there isn't an abundance of elephants in NY state.
Hand 'em in boys and girls they are going after em...
Dude is H E A V Y~@@!!!!!
This type of weapon is much more suited to a defensive emplacement than a fire and maneuver assault.
Democrats, being unfamiliar with the concept of "defense", to say nothing of the idea of "defending America", probably have no idea what I'm talking about.
Dems and Liberals are fundamentally too stupid to pour contaminants from metal containers.
Andy Pelosi....any relation to you-know-who?
Would this mean that I can't buy a Civil War weapon, which is commonly .54 calibre?
What is the magic of .50 Calibre? Is there some magical properties of such a weapon that makes it worse than a .499 calibre?
If these weapons are soooo powerful then why are then not the standard issue weapon for soldiers around the world, instead of being relegated to special use?
Enquiring minds, et
So, as a military-only (i.e., militia) weapon, it's protected under Miller.
Isn't it a little difficult for an 18 year old to come up with $7,000.00 without creating some kind of scrutiny by the feds?

And there are lunitics here in the United States that want us disarmed......just how utterly and completely crazy is that?
If Andy Pelosi et al succeed in even partially disarming American citizens...and even one American is murdered by mohammidians because of the lack of the banned firearm...I would say Andy Pelosi should suffer some consequences.....I can't say what those consequences might be, but they should be severe enough that Mr. Pelosi will never forget.

"which uses a bullet that's six inches long...."
Damn news reporters are mostly morons. They seem to have any knowlege of anything they report on. The bullet is about 1" long. It is a half inch in diameter. The shell casing is six inches long. And it would be a un-believable lucky shot to bring down even a piper club with one round from this weapon.
Ask any soldier or Marine if I am not being truthful.
These bozos just keep rolling along in mis-information.
So a well place shot lets say from a Winchester 460 Magnum on some fuel valve at a chemical plant will probably do just as well as this 50 caliber round. Now remember anyone can walk into a gun shop and by a Winchester 460 caliber rifle.
Only thing is, with the 50 caliber rifle, it has a much longer barrel, which leads to a higher muzzle energy and a flatter bullet path, which will retain more energy at much longer distances. But this article as others, makes it sound like a 50 caliber rifle can bring down a chopper or military jet or airliner with a few shots. It is very misleading in my opinion. Of course a 50 caliber machine gun is a different story, but that is not the issue here.
Pelosi was in Syracuse Thursday as part of a statewide push to ban the .50-caliber rifle, which uses a bullet that's six inches long
MY GOD! Imagine what the cartridge must be like!!!
Must be a LONG action.
First of all, the Second Amendment isn't need-based. Typical that a lefty would try and cast our rights in that fashion -- as though they were an 'entitlement'.
Second of all, the more I hear from people like this Peolis, the more convinced I am that the American citizens DO need these weapons.
Why all the focus on guns? Who needs them! I sure don't! Nope, I don't have any at all. So, if anyone asks I just have gun safes. They are all empty. Really!
If you can.
What I want to say to these alleged human beings would get me banned forthwith. They are the lowest scum imaginable. Lower than whale t*rds and THEY'RE at the bottom of the ocean.
