Why would you ever need this?

It's not about needing it, it's about exercising your right to have one.

Is a right to own that important even if you don't need it?

Absolutely!  And who's to say that you would never need it?

I say I won't need one. In fact I say most people in America won't need one. By and large the army has considered a .50 caliber machine gun to be too heavy to have infantry men carry around. What practical use is would most people have for an 83 lb gun that to even use requires a tripod that adds an additional 44?

Well, that's not a machine gun, it's a single shot long distance rifle.  .50 BMG.  You never know when or if you'll need one.  I can't type what practical use you'll need it for because the DHS could read the post and suspend many of my Constitutional rights under the Patriot Act.

Well even I had an interest in owning a gun, I would likely just stick with something had more rounds since everything I hear is that trading in number of shoots for added firepower isn't practical.

Depends on the round.  Having a .22 with hundreds of rounds is okay, but there's no stopping power.  .45 or 9mm is a good way to go.  You get the best of both worlds.

I want that gun. Do they make the .50 BMG in bolt-action?

MacMillan does but I'm not sure if it's sold to the general public.  I live in California and it's illegal to even get a .50 BMG here, the laws will be different where you are.  Unless you're in New York.

Why the fuck would you need a 12.7mm Sniper rifle?
Seriously, what does it achieve?

It achieves a 1.5 mile stable bullet in even a strong wind it drifts only minimally and so it's very predictable, thus it VERY easy to hit your target, which sets it apart from almost every other ranged rifle. And at 1.5 miles hits it target 4.5 seconds before the rife report should be heard, but is not heard because the sound doesn't really reach the target at all at that range, and at that range the bullet is sub sonic so its sonic boom (or snap) can't even be heard. So the target doesn't even know its being shot at at all, and so it just stands there if you miss. But when you hit it hits with more power than a 44 magnum point blank, but has lost enough energy that it doesn't splatter the target, thus leaving good meat for the table. It will kill anything up to a moose from 1.5 miles away. No more hunting with a horse, pickup or quad, just sit with a high power spotting scope and an iPhone targeting computer app, and wait for dinner...
I hope this answers your question. :)

Okay, let me point out a couple of things.

1) All standard rifle rounds(except those designed for subsonic/supressed use) are going to hit their target before it can hear the shot.

2) You're going to have a hell of a time trying to find/see an animal from 1.5 miles away, let alone shoot it.

3) If you happen to kill an animal from 1.5 miles away you are still going to have to drive/walk 1.5 miles to pick it up, so really your comment about not needing transport defeats itself.

1- obviously, but "if you MISS the target" (as this does tend to occur) the target will hear the sonic snap of the passing bullet, unless fired a a great enough range that the bullet is no longer sonic when it reaches the target, but even so it will still hear the rifle report as very few smaller caliber rifles maintain a stable bullet beyond the range of the report. The .50 cal is one that can out range it's own report, so a subsonicbullet passes inrelative silence. Proof is the canadains record Berlinger sniper hit his target at 1.6 miles on the "3rd shot" and found itpff the target did not respond at all to the first two, that was why. So ad you can see the .50 has made it's mark with that effectiveness.

2-I can find animals out beyond 1.5 miles, a few hours ago I observe a heard of deer pass through grazing cattle on the ridge 2.5 miles out though my spotting scope.

3, yes a truck still is needed unless you're plinking troublesome predators.

Conclusion: my point still stands, the .50 has it's uses and is an admirable rifle to master for it's unprecedented range and predictable bullet trajectory even in adverse conditions.

It's going to be harder to stop than last time, because this time, it won't need the votes of Congress.

Isn't that an act of treason?

As defined in our Constitution treason is creating war against your home country. Seeing as how this is the UN and not (hopefully) the US, it wouldn't be treason; it would be eradicating the world of one of the most corrupt entities gracing the planet. But that's just one humble opinion.

Gun control law only helps the criminals. What do criminals do best?..............Well, break the law. Introducing gun control law will leave the honest and law abiding population open for attack by criminals.
Author Carol Quigley, a Georgetown professor, mentor to Bill Clinton, wrote in his book called Tragedy and Hope how the difference between a feudal slaved society and an industrialized advanced society is the possibility for common population to own firearms.
