"These experts have hands-on experience defending against terror attacks and agree unanimously that 50 caliber anti-armor sniper rifles present a clear and present danger to national security," states study author Tom Diaz, VPC senior policy analyst. Diaz said Congress and the White House have bowed to pressure from the gun industry and the National Rifle Association to block federal regulation of the rifles, which are used on the battlefield to defeat light armor and take out such targets as fuel storage and transport vehicles and aircraft.

Adds Diaz, "Bringing 50 caliber anti-armor rifles under the existing National Firearms Act, which regulates other weapons of war such as machine guns, would make it possible for the first time to know exactly who has these deadly military weapons."
