They MUST have a valid reason of course. Just let me see the stats for death (or in the .50's case PROPERTY DAMAGE) from the .50 and we will see. I will not accept "We don't have any because there are none" as an answer.

Here's your reason:
"

Despite their versatility in war, these rifles have limited lawful purposes. They weigh between twenty and forty pounds and measure almost five feet in length. They are too large and unwieldy for effective home defense and too powerful and destructive for hunting. This bill will ban the. possession, sale and use of 50-caliber weapons in order to protect our citizens and the law enforcement personnel who risk their lives to keep us safe."

Please, someone, show me where the 2nd Amendment put conditions on our ownership of firearms?

A weapon with the capacity to kill a human at over a mile, pierce body and vehicle armor, and destroy military and civilian infrastructure could cause considerable destruction and havoc if wielded by an assassin or other criminal or terrorist.
This law was written by a 3rd grader or bubble headed soccer mom or both and since when do "crimial or terrorist" follow the laws of NY.

My stance is: Accept no more restrictions, do not compromise on anything that has to do with firearms. Find a way to repeal or have declared unconstitutional the restrictions that are already in place.

Lets execute illegal gun owners (thugs) when they are found in possession of such items, start with the handguns and the problem will go away so that no other restrictive gun laws will be needed

I wonder if they know that there are muzzle loading rifles in .50 and even .60 caliber, or higher. What about other rifles like .338 Lapua? They can be just as destructive when talking about a Vs. LEO or Civilian target, there are also quite a few calibers ranging from .405 - .450. This law will never pass, plus I would love to see them try to make anyone go near the guy that HAS the .50BMG and tell him he needs to hand it over.

"Alarmingly, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
investigators have found that some of these weapons have ended up in
the hands of domestic and international terrorist organizations,
international drug traffickers, and violent criminals.".........................because the ATF purposely let those people straw purchase them.

I beg to differ that all .50 cal's are 20+lbs. How about the Desert Eagle in 50AE or the S&W model 500 in 50 S&W? When you add all the goodies you might make 7 lbs.

Whomever proposed that legislation probably watched this scene, freaked out, and now they are on a crusade to ban 50 cal firearms. Why? Because EVERY druglord, assassin, and terrorist in NYS has an M107 in their gym bag!
