Another Muslim whack job killing people and gun control is back on the table. "Assault Weapons" have to go according to the usual gun grabbers.
The uneducated, or willfully stupid, simply don't (or refuse) to get that an AR15 is no more an "Assault Weapon" than a Ford F350 Super Duty is a sub-compact. An "assault weapon" has the capability to fire semi auto (one squeeze of the trigger = one bang), burst (one squeeze of the trigger = 3 bangs) and fully automatic (one squeeze of the trigger = multiple bangs until you let go or it runs out of ammunition whichever comes first.
So an AR15 LOOKS
like an M16 or M4 on the outside but it ISN'T
the same on the inside. Squeeze the trigger on an AR15 and you get ONE
bang. Not three or more!
Once upon a time you could buy kit cars that would make your Volkswagon Bug. They still make them today http://www.bgwspectre.com/rods.html
So you can have your Bug look like an exotic car on the outside but that doesn't change what's under the dress up.
Looked at another way, if you're not a blonde and believe that blondes have more fun you may choose to bleach or dye your hair. Does that mean you're really a blonde? Nope, you just look it. If you're a natural blonde or brunette and have hair dyed red and they said that all red heads must be arrested would you be arrested? Going by the same logic as those who want to ban AR15s because they are "Assault Weapons" you would be counted as a red head because you look like one.
And as for banning Assault Weapons... they were banned from civilian ownership, with few exceptions, in 1934 (See the National Firearms Act... an almost word for word copy of the gun control act that Hitler put in place in Nazi Germany).
