Certainly this is something that needs to be looked at. If you're not in the military, you don't need to have a sniper rifle. This should have been addressed 16 years ago when the DC-snipers were running amok. Better late than never.

And don't tell me that you need a sniper rifle for hunting. You can get all the food you need to sustain life these days at your local grocer or restaurant.

Why does the military need sniper rifles?

They will have to do a gun-grab to have an even negligible impact on the number of firearms in circulation.

300+ million out there, and that number spikes every time politicians start clucking about imposing new restrictions on firearms.

Sweet.

I don't doubt we'll hear more like this (dunno if you're serious). Now bolt action rifles are on the chopping block.

All this talk of supporting the 2nd Amendment, and I've yet to see a well regulated militia. I see a bunch of yahoos wanting to have the right to bear whatever and how many arms they want, but somehow the words "well regulated" seem to missing from all the rhetoric. How can people who can get as much ammunition as they want or who can escape through the gun show loophole consider themselves regulated?

I have a friend who back in Vietnam shot and killed a higher up Kremlin supporter with a sniper rifle with bolt action as described. We need these guns around. There are too many Kremlin supporters among us.

Because the Constitution doesn't override natural law.

As a sovereign individual, I have the absolute right to own anything I damn well please, as long as it was acquired through voluntary exchange. No one has the right to tell another person what they can and cannot own.

Yeah, yeah, whatever. Same ole, same ole. Still waiting on an answer from all those so concerned about the Constitution. And since when does natural law dictate that you get to own any gun you want? What the hell does that even mean?
