  1. Maddow goes on and on about things a .50BMG round can potentially do. She however has to lean on the hypothetical because there has been one murder committed in the US with such a weapon. (that is using the data supplied by your very own Violence Policy Center)

    1. How many crimes have been committed with claymore mines? Should they be made available?

    2. Mike, explosive devices are already regulated. We are talking about firearms that are currently legal in much of the country.

    3. Because that comparison is just spot on--number of crimes committed with something legal and very easy to get, and number committed with something mostly illegal and very hard if not impossible to get.
