Yeah, yeah: I know: AR-15s look like M16s. They look military. And military is scary. Only . . . what about the cops who look like full battle dress military soldiers? What about their [often fully-automatic] assault rifles? Don’t those rifles scare gun control advocates more? Nope. The idea of a civilian having the power to be an effective militiaman – a soldier, essentially – is far more frightening to the average anti than the largely unaccountable standing army patrolling the city streets under the name “police.” The fact that criminals don’t use ARs (except in rare cases) has nothing to do with it. It’s all about social control. But haven’t gun owners won that battle? The assault weapons ban came, the assault weapons ban left. There are now millions of ARs out there, somewhere. Why can’t the antis just leave ARs alone? Or did I already answer that question?
