Ban On High-Powered .50 Caliber Weapons Approved
Bit by bit, but they keep at it

TRENTON – Highly-powerful .50 caliber weapons used by the armed forces and special police units would be banned for civilian use according to legislation that gained the approval of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee on Thursday as the panel followed through on the legislative plan by Senate Democrats to reduce the threat of gun violence in New Jersey.

It's not up to them to decide who needs one and for what purpose.

Those are awesome weapons and built very well.

Sponsored by Senator Raymond Lesniak and Senator Barbara Buono, the bill, S-2178, would prohibit the future sale and possession of .50 caliber rifles capable of firing 12,000 “foot-pounds” or more of power.

California banned them long ago, so Barret came up with the .416, which actually has better ballistics than the .50 caliber.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

Politicians look forward to the days when they are wearing targets on their back every where they go. They are trying to ban the gun that can take them out from a mile or more away.

With legislation like this, those days will probably be coming sooner that later.

Re: Ban On High-Powered .50 Caliber Weapons Approved
how pissweak and innefective.


caliber isn't the problem unless you are an elected official, as it offers possible escape after a long distance kill, making the weapon atractive to others who wouldn't get away with it if they were closer.


they don't have the balls to introduce legislation to free civilians from being shot so they pass a law that helps only them and expect to be praised for it.



bikies here keep getting caught with barret .50 knock offs, which the police then take to their range and demonstrate their firepower on the news. seeing bikies can make them in the shed,
their ban is even more useless.

 Quoting: Dug In


Just to clarify, it's not 12,000 ft/lbs of power, it's 12,000 ft/lbs of ENERGY. As in mass x velocity. It would be power if it were that divided by a unit of time.

Regardless, my car can hit something with a hellava lot more energy than that.
