Bring heavy and intermediate sniper rifles under the control of the National Firearms Act.
What is an "intermediate sniper rifle" you ask?
Why, they explain that as well:
Some manufacturers may choose to refine the .338 Lapua Magnum, an intermediate round falling in size and power somewhere between the traditional military 30 calibers and the .50 BMG. The .338 Lapua Magnum was designed in the late 1980s "as a long-range European military sniping round," according to sniping expert John Plaster. He advises that its "great speed and heavy weight makes for especially lethal long-range shooting and good penetration against vehicles and aircraft�typical counterterrorist targets�as well as building materials."282 Some manufacturers already offer .338 Lapua Magnum sniper rifles.
According to Forbes, sniper magnate Ronnie G. Barrett plans later this year to make his "boldest move" yet, "when he steps out of the .50-caliber niche with a new .30-caliber tactical rifle designed for police SWAT teams. Barrett hopes that market will boost annual sales to $20 million over the next three years."283 The magazine does not say whether Barrett plans to offer the new SWAT sniper rifle to civilians, but if the past is any guide, it will be. It is not clear whether the new 30 caliber will be a .338 Lapua Magnum...Therefore, a useful strategy for effective control may lie in civil litigation, a strategy that would be enhanced if states passed legislation clearly establishing strict liability for damages resulting from the use or misuse of such weapons. Such litigation could impose tort liability, including punitive damages, for manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, importers, retailers, and any others who participate in bringing to the civilian market any sniper rifle (in any caliber) or associated gear (such as ammunition or optics) that is used to kill or injure a human being or to damage property.
In short, the gun industry should be held to the strictest standards of legal accountability available for the design and marketing to civilians of military sniper rifles, as detailed in this report.
Military Sniper Rifle? You mean like the Remington 700.
Associated Gear? You mean like every scope out there? All Ammo?
But they're just talking about AP ammo, right? Sure, you keep believing that.
The existing ban on armor-piercing ammunition should be updated and expanded to cover all AP and API ammunition. This would most effectively be accomplished through the promulgation of a performance standard in which ammunition is tested for its ability to penetrate bullet-resistant vests, ballistic glass, and armor,ee as opposed to the existing standard based on the bullet's content.
Guess what? Most "bullet-resistant vests" are designed to stop PISTOL rounds. Not rifle rounds. You're 30 cal of any sort would be categorized as AP ammo.
So yes Virginia, they are coming after your hunting guns. It's not likely they'll succeed, but, by their own admission, it's one of their goals.
