Ya one other thing, going from that logic we should also ban EVERY THING that any one could possibly use to down an aircraft, if some one managed to do it with a .50bmg without years of training I would gladly turn in even my sling shot to these leaches.inmyownsummerami said:Here is a quote from one of the brady bunch from this site http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/206444_guns04.html
"They can pierce the skin of an aircraft," said Daniel Vice, a lawyer with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a supporter of the law. "It could be used to shoot down an airplane. And we certainly don't want to wait until a terrorist buys one before we ban it."

you got to wonder sometimes.Matt`G said:As expected, that was a shame to watch. Mr. Bradley (that the 60min guy's name? I hardly ever watch it) did a great job of slanting the segment... big surprise. The only good part of that segment (off memory, not direct quote):
Mr. Barrett: You shouldn't be shooting any gun at an aircraft. It's illegal.
Mr. Bradley: *scoff* Terrorists don't care if it's illegal.
Mr. Barrett: So they also won't care about a new law making the .50BMG illegal.
They also pulled up some internet sites with sales of ammo that is apparently not legal (don't know anything about it, though). I like how the solution relating to enforcement problems of an already existing law is to pass a new law. Niiiice.
Actually, given the likelihood that the bulk of his best material was never shown by CBS, I thought Barret did pretty well. It tough to appear in a hit piece as anything but an ass.one-eyed-fatman said:The manufacturing guy didn't seem to be near as prepared as he should of been. But then lots of film gets left on the cutting room floor.
