Super Bowl sniper's nest

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Pictures of a sniper booth at the Super Bowl have been circulating on the Internet for a couple of days, causing quite a stir, and apparently, they're real. They were confirmed to be taken at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and they were posted on Facebook by weapons and gear supplier U.S. Tactical Supply, along with the following comment:
The stadium was not yet open when the pics were taken and the rifle never had a round in it that day. ONLY Binoculars were used for observation during the game and NOT the rifle!! It was only put into position to get the pictures of the form fit and function of the DCLW Tripod.

Well, except for the people we let in who are sitting in the stands and edging the field.

Is it real that nearly everyone in the US would be able to buy such a weapon? If so, what the argumentation behind it? To "protect" yourself? For Deer-hunting?

Man even the ad implies: "Buy this, if you want to kill people on a long distance".

Anonymous, in the US we believe that we are "endowed by our Creator" -- that is to say, granted by God -- many rights; you may have heard of some of them: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Our Founding Fathers believed that We the People could never be certain of these rights, particularly the right to be free, if our Government were to disarm us. Not _everybody_ in the US could buy such a weapon, as we have some restrictions, but generally speaking, YES, a US citizen can purchase a bolt-action rifle. The suppressor would be more difficult to acquire, but in some states would be legal, with the right license. Personally, if I wanted to kill people at a long distance, I'd go for .338 Lapua magnum, but that's just me. Hope this helps.
