    Bigger news would be a billionaire drug lord without a 50 cal.

    Who in their right mind would sell 50 caliber machine guns to bad guys with the intent of "tracing" them? Odds are when you find them they're probably be loaded and that could be a problem. And I seriously doubt that Obama would be involved at the level of this decision making, but some bodie's ass should have been handed to him once this became public.

    it was HOLDER's project...he refused to turn over subpoenaed documents to congress and was charged with contempt of congress..
    Oboingo appointed and PROTECTED him...no one was held accountable for F and F even after a boarder guard was murdered.
    thanks Oboingo

    It's not a machine gun at all. It's a Barrett .50 cal sniper rifle. I suppose you could shoot down a helicopter with it, but you could also kill someone by throwing a grapefruit at their head.

    I have shot one at my gun club. We have a 300 meter range- which hardly does a Barrett justice- but it was pretty cool. I've got a sizeable collection of firearms, but most of the guys I shoot with have entire basements full of safes with anything and everything you can think of owning. The interesting this is that these folks are normal people- not the gun-hoarding right wing nuts as portrayed by the media. They simply enjoy collecting and shooting.

    Stop it, GT.

    They're bitter clingers.

    I know because my president told me so.

    The reason nobodys ass was handed to them is exactly because it went all the way up to Odumbo.

    I can't imagine. I bought a 10 gauge shotgun at a gun show. I shot that fucker once and was promptly knocked on my ass. I whined like a bitch afterwards. I imagine a .50 caliber rifle would put me in a coma.

    I wish I had a 300 YARD range to shoot at.
    A buddy helped me hit a target at 704 YDS with my Ruger .204

    My Dad bought a Super Goose 10 some years back. It took a 3 1/2" Magnum, 10 ga load. It was nuts. Smacked you in the shoulder .

    Not to mention .50 caliber rounds were invented decades before helicopters but don't let a good headline get in the way of facts.

    There was no mechanism or intent to trace the F&F guns. It was just good ol' Unlce Sam doing what he does best.
