Part of the fun of the NRA Annual Meeting is seeing the firearm displays that range from sidearms of the old West to the biggest and “baddest” ARs out there, some so powerful they defy human hands. One such bad boy was the Barrett M1077A1 that captured everyone’s attention.  A .50 caliber semiautomatic, the beast held 10 rounds in its magazine.  Barrel lengths were a choice of 20 or 29 inches, with an overall length of 48 or 57 inches (not exactly ideal for concealed carry).  Depending on accessories, the gun weighed about 28 pounds.

Literature available for the gun described it as follows: “Designed to be used with a suppressor, this one-of-a-kind rifle allows you to combine signature reduction capabilities with the flawless reliability of the original Barrett M107, but with a rifle weight reduction of 5 pounds.”

Big guns like these aren’t your everyday hunting or plinking rifle, but that’s why seeing them up close and clinching the trigger is so much fun.

Note the sheer mass and size of .50 caliber rounds.

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”

    Why Does The NRA Still Support NICS?

    The NRA recently re-stated its longstanding support for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a program that was originally mandated by the Brady Bill in 1993.

    In a statement directed at the North Carolina Sherriff Association last week, the NRA said:

    “[North Carolina’s] antiquated and inefficient system has been in place for nearly a century and was enacted long before the age of computers and computerized records. Unfortunately, the [North
    Carolina Sherriff’s Association] has determined it would like to continue to use discretion to deny permits to purchase handguns, rather than simply use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) utilized by the majority of other states.”
    The NRA has publicly supported NICS for years, arguing it should be
    “improved” and “limited” rather than completely eradicated.

    The reasons for this are almost certainly political. As The Truth About Guns pointed out recently, the NRA would take a serious hit with lawmakers and the public if it came out against any and all criminal background checks.

    But this “compromise” approach gives the enemy a permanent foundation to expand gun control.

    Just yesterday, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced a bill that would require anyone buying or selling firearms to undergo a NICS background check, and further require that every gun transfer be reported to the United States Attorney General.

    Maloney’s bill has no chance of passing, but it won’t be the last. For as long as NICS is around, the anti-gun crowd will keep using it as a foundation for laws that limit our rights.

    By continuing to publicly support an unconstitutional system, the NRA is playing with fire.
