This is an AR-15. This rifle has never been used by any military in the world for combat since it's introduction in the late 1950's! It's first cousins, the AR-16 and M-4 ARE military weapons, but they are banned from civilian possession. Yet it is deemed highly lethal, should not be possessed by the public, and calls for it to be banned go on ad nauseum, simply because of it's appearance.
A shotgun like this was used in the Santa Fe high school shooting, not an AR-15! Where is the outcry from the left to ban these! A gun used by hundreds of thousands of Americans for hunting every year, as is the AR-15.
So which one is the real Military Grade Assault Weapon? Hypocrisy with a capital "H"!
