    Why does the distribution matter?

    Guns are legal, therefore, those with the cash and the inclination (and no felony record) can buy them. I don't see any reason to distribute guns more equally.

    This is not true. I suggest you be responsible with information on this.

    I.E. - Where is the crime data to justify making .50 rifles illegal?
    Because it's only purpose is to kill people at a distance. it's not for shooting gophers.

    I think they should all be much more controlled. Americans don't make good choices with guns on a regular basis.

    I hate to repeat myself but....

    If you know how to get a class III license and/or a destructive device license you can get around some of the bans.

    Disco, just to post a vid of yourself with a stern face, holding an assualt rifle and your balls simultaneously . That should make this thread perfect.

    .50 cal rifles are designed to kill thin skinned vehicles.

    The round can be used against people, but other calibers make more sense for human targets.

    Only if you'll post a vid of you cowering in a bush at the fear of all these guns currently in circulation.
