I am usually middle of the road on anti/pro gun control, but I agree this is just the start if the antis get this one through the ASSembly. The facts just don't add up to support a .50 cal ban. According to the .50 cal association and the NRA there has only been once crime ever committed in the U.S. with a .50 Cal. After the first one goes through do they next ban .338 Lapua, Magnum hunting calibers, and eventually the 22 LR.
