What a crock of sh!t..when are they going to learn that these rifles are made for hunting with some slight trigger and barrell adjustments. I wish I could see something 4 miles away much less hit it with my gun... shesh

More outrage! #1 - They have no proof that a military "style" weapon is being used in the sniping. #2 - Military "style" weapons aren't military weapons #3 - Military "style" weapons aren't the most accurate or most powerful weapons available

Their accuracy and range capabilities make these weapons among the most dangerous available today," the lawmakers said. "They can hit targets accurately one mile away and can inflict damage to targets up to four miles away.

Where can I buy one of these? A 223 rifle that can be "sniper" accurate past 500 yards would be news to me! And dangerous out to 4 MILES??!!! People that spout this ignorant shit SHOULD be shot!

Exactly.... Hey!! I got ripped off. My SKS is in that weird little foreign caliber. What I really wanted was one in .223. [whacko]

Anyone hear of 1,000 yard champs shooting .223?????? I don't think so, the smallest I have heard of is 6.5mm or .260 Rem

I find it interesting that no police or military sniper would employ a rifle chambered in .223. What are the sniper rounds of choice, .308, .300 mags, and maybe .50BMG? So, some deranged idiot is whacking people with a .223 and they want to investigate the sales of other types. Go figure... or don't. [rolleyes]
