    This C.O.P. make a lot of sense to me with his tactical unit on the one hand, and his campaign to dump idiotic early releases of dangerous felons, on the other hand.

    The Chief deserves some support.

    Why do I suspect that the “.50 caliber handgun” was a muzzleloader?

  3. Dan Says:

    I would be interested to find out what make and model of the firearm in question is. Not sure why a crazy guy would be going after cops with a S&W 500.

  4. nk Says:

    Yup. S&W .500s are expensive and hard to get, especially for felons. On the other hand, I have seen PSH (credit Uncle) from “journalists” about people armed with .50 caliber muskets. And muzzleloaders, in most states, can just be ordered through the mail. They are exempt from the federal gun laws.

    I think the fact that .50 handguns are so expensive is the reason we see so _few_ of them used in crimes, but it doesn’t mean they’ll never be.

    I’m actually shocked by how mature the article is: they explain that the gun’s primarily used for hunting in the _first_sentence_, and never once mention gun control or quote a Brady (remember when the BC briefly tried to get traction on .50 handguns by calling them “vest busters” and “big boomers”?).

    A Baltimore paper reporting on a crime committed with an exotic and unusually powerful gun, and only discussing the failures of a legal system that lets violent criminals walk?

    Is that even allowed?

    Rand: “Hey Josh, did you see the article about the Baltimore shootout today? Maybe the Joyce Foundation will buck up for another “Donate Now To Save Lives” campaign?!

    Sugarmann: “What kind of Assault Machine Pistol did he have?”

    Rand: A .50 cal.

    Sugarmann (drooling while in seizure): “Big Boomer(tm), Big Boomer(tm), Big Boomer(tm), Big Boomer(tm), Big Boomer(tm)…..
